Valor: Season 1 (2017 - 2018)


Critic Consensus: Valor's attempt to highlight an often overlooked segment of the armed services is undercut by a badly judged blend of military action and melodrama.

Tv Season Info

In this drama series, an elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots is sent on a top secret mission to Somalia, which goes terribly awry. Only two members of the team return safely: Warrant Officer Nora Madani (Christina Ochoa) and her commanding officer, Captain Leland Gallo (Matt Barr), while the whereabouts of their comrade Jimmy Kam (W. Tre Davis) is unknown. Now back in the U.S., Madani and Gallo are the only ones who know the truth about what really happened. Meanwhile, Thea (Melissa Roxburgh), the enigmatic CIA officer investigating the failed mission, has her own suspicions about what occurred. With Nora still recovering from the mission, she is grounded from flying. But when it's discovered that Jimmy is alive and being held captive, Nora is determined to join Gallo to rescue their friend. As preparation and training intensify, Nora and Gallo grow closer, and soon find themselves torn between duty, honor and desire, as they wonder who they can trust.

Critic Reviews for Valor Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

This all probably sounds ridiculous, and pretty much is.

The CW has the dull Valor, a show thin in acting and thinner in production values.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

Valor doesn't have the same level of quality on almost any level as its competitors, which is a shame. But it does have a unique point of view and a more focused story to tell.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

So Valor quickly becomes about secrets and lies, guilt and bravery, and hot bodies and awful banter. It's not the best mix, and not mixed the best way.

Oct 9, 2017 | Full Review…

Valor is overblown, badly cast, horribly filmed and my candidate for Worst New Show of Fall 2017.

Oct 8, 2017 | Rating: D | Full Review…

It's an intriguing conspiracy thriller with some painful observations on modern warfare that may take much of the The CW's youthful audience by surprise.

Oct 6, 2017 | Full Review…

One of the most notable trends for fall TV can be found in a wave of dramas about military life, and the CW enters the fray with Valor. But this kind of show on this network ends up being an awkward fit all around.

If Valor lacks one thing-and it lacks plenty of things-it's insight. To tell a familiar story is no crime; to do it in a lackluster way isn't either.

Oct 9, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

It's always been a thing to make fun of The CW as a network of gratuitously pretty people, but I've rarely felt it drain a show as much as Valor.

Oct 9, 2017 | Full Review…

Valor doesn't make a lot of sense.
