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.

News & Interviews for Valor: Season 1
This all probably sounds ridiculous, and pretty much is.
... unlike shows like Seal Team, it's got some soapy guilty-pleasure moments, thanks to inappropriate behaviors and illicit activities, which gives it the feel of a teen-oriented serial.
There's no reason a military drama can't be blended with a soapy melodrama, but Valor doesn't seem to have the right formula just yet.
It's refreshing that the creators seem to understand that there are young women both serving in the military and young women who have the ambition to do so.
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.
