S.W.A.T. - CBS Thursday




Series Premiere

S01E01 - "Pilot"
Thursday - November 2, 2017
CBS - 10/9c


Description:
More:
Inspired by the television series and the feature film, S.W.A.T. stars Shemar Moore as a locally born and raised S.W.A.T. sergeant newly tasked to run a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles. Torn between loyalty to where he was raised and allegiance to his brothers in blue, former Marine Daniel "Hondo" Harrelson has everything it takes to be an excellent leader and bridge the divide between his two worlds. Hondo's elite unit includes David "Deacon" Kay, an experienced S.W.A.T. officer who always puts the team first, despite feeling overlooked for the lead job; Jim Street, a cocky but promising new member of the group; Christina "Chris" Alonso, a skilled officer and the team's canine trainer; and Dominique Luca, an expert driver who gets them in and out of high risk situations. Overseeing the unit is Jessica Cortez, the captain of L.A. Metro who values her job above all else, including her off-the-books relations with Hondo. Hondo's team enjoys an intense rivalry with another L.A.-based unit led by Mumford, an aggressive leader who likes to do things his way. With Hondo leading the charge, these dedicated men and women bravely put themselves at risk to protect their community and save lives.

Re: S.W.A.T. - CBS Thursday

Did anyone try this reboot last night? Well, I did!

Yeah, it was your typical procedural-fare, but I liked the Shemar Moore character. Now, what I didn't like about him, they decided to use the same "character name" as both the previous series and movie. "Hondo"! Other than that, it wasn't bad.

ZoW, he plays the same character from Criminal Minds. The guy who gets dirty. The guy who'll put his life on the line for the underdog, especially children.

This is a good point. And, it goes to how much you enjoyed the Derek Morgan character in Criminal Minds.

As I mentioned in my previous post, its the same guy in S.W.A.T.

Give it a looksee and tell me what you think.

Okay, TPTB may've taken this episode a little to far.

Watching "Hondo" fly into a dangerous situation standing on a stage attached to a helicopter was a little much. Then, he took the "kill" shot from said helicopter.

Re: S.W.A.T. - CBS Thursday

I'm one episode behind.


ETA: Finally got a chance to watch this episode.

The Team roll on a location that "Hondo's" CI told him just accepted a huge shipment of Heroin. They end up in a shoot-out, with the bad guys all dead except one. That one refuses to talk.

They also find several kilos of Heroin, along with a closet full of Filipino refugees. It seems they've been smuggled into the Country with belly's full of the drug.

Street goes to visit his mother in prison. If you remember from the Pilot, she's in prison for killing her husband, Street's father, who was abusive.
