The material and info could have been handled with more respect, rather than milked for dramatic sound bytes. As it is, the series often reeks of sensationalism, which is one more reason why I seldom watch TV these days. The stories could have told themselves without the sportscaster voiceovers and the pumped-up music score. The series oversells its subject, and it comes off cartoonish despite the EXCELLENT photography. It lessens the real impact of the job and the lives of real men, almost turning them into caricatures.
Too bad. This could have been so much better. As is, it just comes across as one more form of hyped-up entertainment.
Men (especially the men profiled here) deserve better.
