    Was enjoying this series then they had this episode where the seal team prove once again how amazing they are and the sas are amateur. Won't waste any more time on this show.

    Typical US fiction. They make out that a bunch of seals are better than the SAS...... I know...what a joke. We all know that the SAS are the best in the world. The US special forces would be lucky to make it to the top 10. Just for the record a SAS sniper made a 1 shot kill on a IS leader last year, at night from over a mile and half away with only a 15 second window of opportunity. That's how good they are.

    The SAS are the best special forces in the world, and in this episode they are made out to look like amateurs next to the amazing American seal team. Purely forgetting that the SAS go round the world training other special forces units on hostage rescue.

    Creative but reasonable plan, correct tactics, and great action. That's why this episode is so unique. If you've ever watched the hilarious anti-hijacking scenes from other 'Spec-op' shows, then you'll appreciate Seal Team even more.

    For example, in 'The Unit' S01E01: the team leader, alone, without a body armor, just charged into the plane with a pistol and killed all the terrorists in slow motion -- Call of Duty style, isn't it?

    And in British 'Ultimate Force' S03E01: a female SAS trooper (yeah, In this TV series, SAS started to recruit a female soldier for Combat Operations), swooped forward, then drift through the air and shoot the hijacker's leader -- wait a minute, am I watching a John Woo's movie?

    But in 'Seal Team', everything is authentic and professional. The DEVGRU and SAS Operators made a plan, adjust it again and again, and adapted to the situation. When the raid finally started, they were fierce and swift, killing all the hijackers and taking control of the plane in less than one minute. No fancy moves, no stupid slow motion. That's what the counterterrorism units should look like.

    So why is this episode so good? The producer, Tyler Grey, is a retired Delta Force operator, he knows more about anti-hijacking than anyone else -- and that's why.

    Some snowflakes hate this episode because it doesn't show 'SAS No.1', lmfao. First, times are changing, now it would be childish to argue about "which special forces are the best". Second, I don't see anything derogatory about SAS in this episode. Although the seals were the main characters (because it's Seal Team), SAS soldiers were also involved in the plan, and showed great skill in combat. In fact, British TV shows and movies are the ones most likely to disparage the special forces of other countries, let's take a look at 'Ultimate Force' S02E01, SAS almost wiped out all French special force soldiers with only one death, are you kidding me? And in S04E03, how do the British writers portray US special forces? make them look like boy scouts. And in 'Killer Elite', the character said "They (SAS) make the Navy Seals look like a bunch of cupcakes." -- That's the "respect" from the British filmmakers.

    By the way, I am neither American nor British.

    I'll just reiterate what 90% have already said (the other 10% are dreamers); I've enjoyed the series up until now, a nice bit off escapism - even though in reality Jason Hayes' ego would have had the whole team killed by the end of season 1 episode 2. Apparently a Seal Team leader can usurp any level of command, wing it with a plan hatched off the top of his head in seconds (forgivable in the name of drama I suppose) but in this episode (unforgivable) walk in to an ongoing SAS hostage rescue (aircraft) operation, for which they invented the very flexible tactics and make the SAS team leader (intentionally played by an actor with the voice and charisma of a cardboard Rupert) look totally inept. Talk about stereotyping. Obviously the series has some expert input here and there, as some of the language and fieldcraft is pretty convincing. I would imagine that some of those advisors get pretty frustrated though when they see the actual context of the completed episodes. I know this is fiction folks, but writers of this episode, Holly Harold & Dana Greenblatt really do need a reality pill to get back to somewhere close to being believable. Why can't the series dynamics be a little more like 'Act of Valor' a superb film played by real Navy Seals, without the bravado, now that really was enjoyable.

    After the Democrats demanded "Save the Democracy of the Republic of South Vietnam War" I was stationed at the Federal Republic of West Germany as Field Artillery. I was then assigned to the U.S. Department of State, at the Great British Colonial Empire, England, British Ministry of Defense, further sent as U.S. Army Special Forces Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol to the British Special Air Service (SAS) to "assist" in updating their Training as most SAS had no actual Combat Experience, afterwards assigned to the British Ministry of Intelligence as the Queen's Own SAS Units as British Military Assistance to Civil Authorities.

    This Episode does depict some of the British "arrogance" as "Brit Way or No Way", that I encountered during the 1970s, and later on at Former British Colonies of the Great British Colonial Empire Iraq, Yemen (Aden), Afghanistan, Malaysia, Egypt, the Brits (SAS) were just as messed up as the French Commandos (Special Forces) at the former French Colonies of the French Colonial Empire Syria, Libya, Algeria, Indochina (Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam).

    The Real Brit Ignorance was 2001 after 300 of Us, 150,000 Northern Alliance (our former CIA Operation Cyclone Muhajeen) Overthrew the 5 Million Afghan Taliban (Former Pro U.S.S.R. Afghans, Pro U.S.S.R Afghan Military). Chased them into Northern Iraq, the First ISAF Commander British General McColl while we were at Northern Iraq, let Osama Bin Laden, Al Quada, Millions of Afghan Taliban back into Afghanistan thru Iran, so everything we did 2001 was negated.

    Accurate, 10, A U.S. Navy "Bravo" S.E.A.L. Team, is Less than a U.S. Navy "Alpha" S.E.A.L. Team, the U.S. Navy S.E.A.L. Teams unless U.S. Navy's SWDEVGRU are less than the U.S. Army Special Forces 1st Detachment "Delta" CAGs. Based on what I have seen this U.S. Navy "Bravo" S.E.A.L. Team is NOT U.S. Navy SWDEVGRU (long list).

    The inaccuracy, 0, again with all Episodes there is still no U.S. Navy Officer in Command of the U.S. Navy S.E.A.L. Team usually the same Officer that they went thru BUD/S with, same with the British SAS.

    Entertainment Value 8.
