I don't have any military experience but I can understand how those that do are annoyed with some of the details. I am sure "JAG" would have gotten similar complaints if the internet and message boards like this one had been around in full force like they are today.
However, as an ignorant viewer, I quite enjoyed this show. I like the premise and story. I like the interaction between Abe and Ferry, they seem to have mutual respect and work very well together.
I can't tell if the show is trying to set up Abe and Dobbins for the typical "will they or won't they" scenario when two leads work with each other and there's sexual tension but they seem to hate each other but they really don't (cf. Moonlighting, the current Moonlighting-inspired Whiskey Cavalier, many other shows, etc.). It seems obvious to me that they have a past together, they are no longer currently together, but they may possibly still be interested.
I'm quite proud for the show and for Luke Mitchell that he managed to keep his shirt on. I thought it was going to come off at some point, even in a military show, because that seems to be his go-to move in pretty much every show he's been on. I guess he's making an effort to be known as a serious actor haha.
I wish we had seen more of Philippa Soo. For some reason I thought she was going to be the female lead. I would have liked her better in the Captain Dobbins position. As it was, she was barely in the show. It's nice that there is some diversity in the show, but I can't help but notice that at its core, the show's two leads are two young pretty white people, while the minorities (Soo, the female Asian driver on the base, Abe's Middle Eastern irritating earnest assistant, Ferry, the judge) were just minor supporting players or glorified extras.
Especially with Ferry. Ferry is a Major and outranks Abe. Here's hoping we see more from Ferry and Philippa Soo (I don't believe we even learned her character's name) in the future.
