The Brave


The schools have taken the whole of Thanksgiving week off, so it's back to the "summer schedule" for the week. Wednesday is the day I talk about a TV show that you've probably not heard of.

I've been attempting to figure out an obscure show I've been watching recently, and I can't come up with a thing. Because, I've just been barely keeping up with the network shows since the fall TV season began. In fact, there are three shows that I'm recording and storing for when all the shows go off the air in December.

So, instead of a show you've not heard of, I'm going to talk about a new fall show I've been enjoying. It's called The Brave, and it's on NBC.

Via Google:
In the dark and complex world of America's elite undercover military heroes, Defense Intelligence Agency Deputy Director Patricia Campbell and her team of analysts wield the world's most advanced surveillance technology from headquarters in D.C. All the while, Adam Dalton and his heroic Special Ops squad of highly trained undercover specialists use their unbreakable bond and commitment to freedom to save lives of innocent people and execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world.
The reviews aren't good. And I didn't want to like this show. I recorded it primarily because it started before all the other shows this season started. And then I got sucked in.

Each episode is exciting. The stakes are clear. The Special Ops team has a difficult goal to accomplish, and they fight like hell to make it happen. They're in some exotic locale, and the odds are stacked against them. But somehow, they manage to make it through successfully.

It's one of those shows that you don't need to know a lot going in. And apparently no one is watching. It looks like no new episodes are going to be ordered, which means that this show is all but cancelled at this point. However, as there isn't a lot of backstory, it's one of those shows that you can watch when you're looking for something exciting to fill the time during this holiday season.

Here's the trailer:



That's pretty much the first episode. You can find the rest of the aired episodes on NBC's website.

Have you seen The Brave? Are there any new fall shows you've been enjoying?

  2. I have not seen this show but it does look good actually. I find that some shows are quite good but don't last which is a shame. Now I am very curious about the show that you are watching that you think no one will know it...what is it?? I have been watching Ghosted which is a fun comedy...silly but fun. I am also watching The Great Canadian Bake Off which is taken right from the original which is the Great British Bake Off. I also am loving The Oriville which is much better than STD..um...Star Trek Discovery

    1. I figured you've all heard of the shows I'm watching. The new shows are: The Gifted and The Orville. I'm also watching Wisdom of the Crowd, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is back on the air, but I already talked about it over the summer.

    2. I'm digging The Orville as it reminds me of original Star Trek crossed with Airplane the movie a bit.

  3. This is why I hate NBC. You start to enjoy something on it, and they screw it up or take it away. I still haven't forgiven them for cancelling Law & Order.

  4. -not a fall show, but I really dug watching Difficult People on Hulu. They only did two series, so all that kooky creativity is being funnelled elsewhere now, alas.

    1. Did it get cancelled? I thought they'd only done two seasons because it just started. That is, I thought they'd be making more sooner or later. But I could be wrong about that.

  8. I had not heard of this. Wow, Mike Vogel looks so much like Travis Van Winkle from "The Last Ship". I'm happy to say that action/adventure series has been renewed. And the great Peter Weller is in the current episodes we're watching, as a bad guy! I usually see him as a good guy as in "Robocop" and as Buckaroo Bonzai back in the day. ~grin~ He's still amazing. Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. It's this transistion--they start as leads, but as they age, they turn them into the villians. Very telling about our fiction, isn't it?
