The Brave: Season 1 (2017 - 2018)

Season 1
The Brave

Critics Consensus

Formulaic to a fault, The Brave fails to bring anything new to the genre -- though high production values and a capable cast may be diverting enough for some.

    Meh, it passed the time.

Tv Season Info

A team of D.C.-based intelligence analysts headed by DIA Deputy Director Patricia Campbell (Anne Heche) join forces with an elite Special Ops team led by Capt. Adam Dalton (Mike Vogel). Together, with Campbell's team in charge of intelligence gathering and Dalton's team doing the groundwork, they conduct high-risk anti-terrorist missions in different countries. As they work one mission after another, the teams' members are forced to face dark pasts they prefer to forget, and the cost of keeping the world safe from terrorists becomes personal. "The Brave" also stars Tate Ellington as Noah, Sofia Pernas as Hannah, Demetrius Grosse as Preach, Hadi Tabbal as Amir, Noah Mills as McG, and Natacha Karam as Jaz.

Critic Reviews for The Brave Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (11)

The opening hour ends with an unexpected, big boom of a cliffhanger designed to bring viewers back for more. In that it's unique. Otherwise The Brave is broad-stroked and pro forma in highly volatile times both at home and abroad.

Top Critic

Its thrills are generic, but at least it stays focused on the mission.

May 29, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Nothing about the first episode makes us think The Brave is any different than most case-of-the-week fare built for mass appeal.

Top Critic

Capable enough time-killer, but nothing compelling.

Sep 25, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
Top Critic

The series follows the template for action shows but makes the most of it through crisp pacing and realistic action sequences.

May 29, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Director Brad Anderson does his best to elevate above something you've seen before and kinda gets there.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

As openers go, the execution of this feels like a workaday procedural drama more than a counter-terrorism thriller.

Sep 19, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

I must say, The Brave (fka For God and Country) is well-produced, the tactical operations are clever and the cast is impressively diverse in a way that makes their opening undercover maneuvers in Syria rather believable

Jun 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Anne Heche is miscast as the DIA deputy director (the boss), and the members of the team seem, well, interchangeable might be the nicest way to put it.

Oct 21, 2017 | Full Review…

There are so many other procedurals out there, why not have one about the military? We have the greatest military in the world, and we should celebrate them every chance we get.

Sep 26, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

NBC isn't breaking any new ground here, but maybe it doesn't need to. More focused on operations with a clear procedural setup, The Brave offers up tense tactical missions, but hasn't revealed what its narrative focus will look like.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

NBC has tried to get a political/military show going for quite some time, but The Brave might be its best offering of that lot, boasting a diverse cast and not relying on a high-concept hook to reel viewers in.

Audience Reviews for The Brave: Season 1

    Excellent show! Interesting diverse characters. Interesting plots - not just goid guy bad guy. SO much better than SWAT. Name sucks. Should have been given another season at the very least.
  • Feb 14, 2019
    The opening was good with with a powerful ending .leaving me to want more

    This show and "Seal Team" came out at the same time, and I knew one of them was doomed to fail. I honestly thought The Brave would survive! It was better! The characters were likable, and the stories were detailed and well-told. I thought Anne Heche was at the top of her game, Mike Vogel was phenomenal, and Natacha Karam suddenly became my favorite actress. Why they cancelled this show, I'll never know. It was better than half the crap "critics" tout as "Extraordinary! Emotional! Outstanding!". I hope another network picks this up. FOX? Are you listening?

    This series was one of mi favorite... So disappointed that season 2 is been canceled!!! Good interesting shows been cancelled for boring ones...
  • Aug 22, 2018
    i watched the first episode and it was OK but it wasn't enough enjoyment for me to watch a second episode.
  • Jul 29, 2018
    i Loved the plots and the theme of this show. I think the writers could have come up with a better title than "the Brave. I mean really... I see no native american in the cast (pun intended). Too bad this show didn't get a second season.
  • Jul 07, 2018
