Editorial Reviews

Each week, Special Operator Wil Willis must complete a nearly impossible 'Spec Ops' mission - all by himself! His task is to complete a complex series of military objectives, using his Army Ranger and Air Force Para-Rescue skills to survive, evade, resist and escape. In each episode, he faces a highly trained and highly motivated 'Op-For', or Opposition Force, that's determined to stop him.

as a current military member i loved this show. i first saw reruns on the military channel and had to buy the season.

premise: Will Wilis is a former ranger/para rescue operator. if you are not military that means he was a bad ass and worked with the Special Forces. this one guy carrys out realalistic war games to show viewers how military operations work. Will normally goes up against 4 to 6 enemy opp for (opposition force) the opp for concists of former military and law enforcement personnel. for the most part they are great at their job, but Will is better. they carry out what is called a war game. war games are simulated missions where each side has an objective and they try to carry out thier mission. example there is one where will has to shoot a drug lord and the opp for has to protect the drug lord.

too make it more realalistic durring every mission, mission control puts in a little twist to make if differnet then what was originally organized. this gives it a realalistic feel to how combat missions normally end up, unpredictable. keeping with the realness all participants use what are called sim rounds (simunition rounds) what these are are plastic bullets filled with dish soap. when they hit a target they hurt but do not kill and leave a visible paint mark on a person. they can be fired from a normal weapon so it is very realalistic.

overall this show is fun and is worth the price for only 6 episodes. if you dont believe me they show it all the time on the military channel, normally at night. find it watch it once and you will want to watch the rest of them.

This 6-episode disc is filled with the intense action of a good movie. Spec Ops man Wil Willis (Whiskey Whiskey) is given a mission against 4 opposing enemies. During the course of his mission, there's almost always something the changes the game -- like a hostage being taken or intel discovering WMDs on site that need to be destroyed.

Each episode is really a military training exercise conducted by very experienced and able soldiers. But as you're given insight into how Wil Willis operates, you'll quickly discover that the four soldiers are a few men short of a fair fight.

You'll learn how the "instincts" inscribed during training can save a Spec Ops man. And you'll learn that there's no magic to their operation. They move in and out like ghosts to the enemy. But to the operator, they slowly belly crawl through thick brush in order to hit and run without being seen.

If you enjoy military special operations, you'll love this show.

This 2-DVD set is for anyone that's looking for a documentary-style military show unlike anything out there. Special Ops Mission does have a slight 'Reality TV' feel to it, but this ain't no Jersey Shore. You get one man up against an unknown opposing force (OPFOR), and both sides have a mission to accomplish. Bear in mind that the cover art has NOTHING to do with the show. There are no large fireball explosions and the hero, Will Willis (WW), never wears shoulder armor or a Kevlar helmet. This series is all about being light, fast, and self-reliant. This show illustrates the fact that one highly trained man can make a difference. As the saying goes, 'One riot, one Ranger' (a Texas saying, but it still applies here). Yes, Special Ops Mission is a collection of 'war games', and the opposing teams are all *former* military-types, but everybody involved is there to do one thing: WIN.

For anybody that's ever played with paintball or airsoft guns, this show is your dream come true. They use 'Simunitions' instead of real bullets, and they wear real gear. What really impresses me is that Will wears real body armor in every episode. They spell it out in the first episode as his vest alone has a list weight of 35 pounds. That's got to be the vest and at least one, possibly two ceramic trauma plates or their simulated equivalent. He also runs with a pack and sometimes eats and sleeps out in the wilderness. The first episode shows that he had to travel over rough terrain and observe his target for almost 6 and 1/2 hours. And that's before Will even got to the real work.

I saw Special Ops Mission when it was on the Military Channel a couple of years ago. I actualy have it on my DVR too, but wanted the DVDs. I like the DVDs as the commercials are cut out. I was hoping they would show more content or extras that the regular series didn't, but there was nothing extra. That's ok, its a great show, very entertaining and fun to watch. I shared it with my 18 year old son, and he enjoyed it too. For the price it is great entertainment.

Can't express how much I enjoy this show granted it would have been nice had it kept going however if you watch it.. I think in the EP where he was in the forest and hurt his back is what stopped the show...

Special Ops Mission is a great show.

I purchased the dvd set because I was wanting to watch the episodes again.

The DVD is very straightforward. No special features or anything (that was a little disappointing).

Other then that it is a great DVD set.

I hope they come out with a season 2.
