Has anyone heard about this series? It's supposed to air this Monday on History channel and stars Walton Goggins from Justified.

There's been no promotion or trailers for it and it airs supposedly in 4 days. A teaser was released last month (I didn't see it) and apparently it was pulled. I can't find it anywhere.

Directv doesn't even have a listing for it. It's supposed to air Monday at 10pm, but they are currently showing American Pickers airing in that timeslot.


William Broyles, who created this show, is the writer of several big name movies like Apollo 13, Castaway, Jarhead and Flags of our Fathers. The show has a good creative team behind it.

Re: SIX (History) -- Seal Team SIX Miniseries -- S: Goggins -- Premieres 7/18/16

Isn't this the thing that Joe Manganiello dropped out when filming had already begun?

Yup, Goggins replaced him.

They filmed the Pilot with Manganiello, but he apparently got sick when production began and couldn't continue, so they brought it Goggins as his replacement.

The SIX website on History's page has nothing but a show description. I'm actually wondering if this will get delayed. I have a hard time believing this will air with zero promotion.

Good luck getting people to tune in and watch this if you can't even be bothered to put out a trailer for it.

It is funny because I am far more interested with Goggins in the role that Manganiello.

8 episode season


HISTORY'S NEW MILITARY DRAMA SERIES 'SIX' PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18 AT 10PM ET/PT

SERIES TO STAR WALTON GOGGINS, BARRY SLOANE, JUAN PABLO RABA, KYLE SCHMID AND EDWIN HODGE

Series is from A+E Studios, Harvey Weinstein, Weinstein Television and Oscar(R) Nominee William Broyles

New York, New York - October 25, 2016 - HISTORY's new military combat drama series "SIX," makes its series debut on Wednesday, January 18 at 10PM ET/PT. The eight episode first season of "SIX" follows members of Navy SEAL Team Six, modern American warriors, whose covert mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with terrorists. Inspired by real missions, the series authentically captures the inside world of America's elite Special Operations unit - what these SEALs do, their personal lives, combat and the life-and-death decisions they make to protect and serve their country.

"SIX" is an authentic portrayal of what it means to be a member of SEAL Team Six, a true brotherhood, the best at what they do. The series begins with SEAL Team Six troop leader Richard 'Rip' Taggart (Walton Goggins/ "Vice Principals"; The Hateful Eight) making a questionable decision while on a mission in Afghanistan. Two years later, Rip is captured by Boko Haram and it's up to his former SEAL Team Six brothers - led by Joe Graves (Barry Sloane/ "Revenge"), Alex Caulder (Kyle Schmid/ "Copper") and Ricky "Buddha" Ortiz (Juan Pablo Raba/ "Narcos") - to put their differences aside to locate and rescue their former troop leader.

"SIX" also stars Edwin Hodge ("Chicago Fire"), Dominic Adams ("Devious Maids"), Brianne Davis (Jarhead), Nadine Velazquez (Flight), Jaylen Moore ("Homeland"), Donny Boaz (The Great Debaters) and Nondumiso Tembe ("True Blood").

The first two episodes of "SIX" are directed by Academy Award(R), Emmy(R) nominated and DGA Award winning Lesli Linka Glatter ("Homeland," "Ray Donovan").

"SIX" is created by Academy Award(R) nominee William Broyles (Cast Away; Apollo 13; Jarhead) and David Broyles, a military special operations veteran. William Broyles, Harvey and Bob Weinstein, David Glasser, Nicolas Chartier, Alfredo Barrios, Jr. ("Burn Notice"), George W. Perkins (Live from Baghdad), Bruce C. McKenna ("Band of Brothers," "The Pacific") and Glatter are executive producers. David Broyles is a co-executive producer. Karen Campbell ("Dexter") serves as the supervising producer and joins Barrios, McKenna, and William and David Broyles as writers on the series. Retired U.S. Navy SEAL Mitchell Hall (Zero Dark Thirty; Lone Survivor) serves as the series' technical advisor. CNN's national security analyst Peter Bergen serves as the series' terrorism consultant. Jana Bennett and Arturo Interian are the executives in charge of production for HISTORY. A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for "SIX."

"SIX" is produced by A+E Studios in association with Weinstein Television.

I'm trying to figure out if Ortiz is going to die because they made it seem obvious that he will.

I enjoyed it and will keep watching.

Not bad. Fun start. Had some good action.

Kind of reminds me a little of The Unit & Navy Seals. I'm glad that Joe Manganiello dropped out. I can't picture him playing Rip. Goggins has more of the gravitas to play him.

Was a little surprised to hear a few F bombs dropped during that opening mission. I think it's a no-brainer that one of the members of this team will die by the season finale.

This was very disjointed. All the team members seem to be assholes. There is no one to root for.

You can root against one guy though.

2nd episode is tonight.

For those who missed the Pilot last week and don't have cable, you can watch it for free off History's website or via their app.

Episode 2 was a lot slower backing off on the action and focused more on the Seals personal lives.

and seriously? Sperm banks still use VCRs? That was a really awkward scene when Joe was trying to jerk off for his sample. Kind of bullshit that his wife is pushing him for a kid in the middle of an extended mission to rescue one of their own.

I did like that last scene when one of the hostages got his hand hacked off.

I guess History doesn't care about F bombs. They dropped another one tonight when Rip said...."I'm a Navy Mother Fucking Seal" to one of the terrorists.

I'm out after 2 episodes - Goggins is the only character I care about and that is only because I like HIM AS AN ACTOR. Nothing presented on screen makes me care about these characters and there isn't enough action to forgive that aspect. Way too melodramatic and extremely slow pace - too many better shows out there to bother watching the rest of this when it is this mediocre.

Same here, I couldn't make it to the half hour mark of the 2nd episode. Show is filled unlikeable people doing uninteresting things.

I'm watching SIX. It's not bad, basically what I expected. A gritty action drama about Seal members.

re: SIX (History) -- Seal Team SIX -- S: Goggins -- Premieres 1/18/17

Just saw episode 3 today

It was an interesting episode, but fell a little flat at what they wanted to do. They attempted to show some back story to Rip (Goggins character) and why he left the Seals.

I didn't think they did a really good job with it. The flashbacks showed that his marriage apparently fell apart, but I didn't quite understand why.

Also, Rip actually killed someone on a mission that apparently violated the code of the team and it pissed off one of the members. Then he just flat out quit.

As for that climatic escape sequence, I did when he initially abandoned the teacher and school kids and then felt guilty and came back.

When I watch a show about Navy SEALs I am most looking forward to an episode where the primary focus is one guy's marital problems caused by his balls being too warm.

Quick question

Is this show better, worse or comparable to an average episode of Strike Back ?
