    It's somewhat entertaining - and I admire the fact that all of the winnings are going to veteran charities - but the show is a little clunky. It reminds me of another show (Combat Wars?) that had special forces operators competing against one another - and that was an excellent show. Todd Palin is the stud on this show, though, as the operators stated, calling him Rambo.

    As a rule I do not watch TV (Too many commercials), but do watch a few programs on my PC. After just about wearing out my DVD of "ACT OF VALOR" I really didn't expect much from this program, but I was quite surprised. The show is extremely well designed and executed (no pun). Just seeing Chris Kyle, a military icon, in action was worth it and Todd Palin was amazing to say the least. If iTunes will sell the season, I'll be sure to purchase it.

    When grenade launchers, automatic weapons and war games substitute for salsa and swing dancing, the results are less wholesome entertainment and more armed-forces propaganda.

    Overall, the first installment was yet another overbloated, two-hour NBC reality marathon, The Biggest Loser with live ammo and C-list celebrities.
