The Operatives is a television show aired on Pivot TV. I was excited about this show when I first heard of it but then after watching the first 2 episodes and looking at the trailer for Episode #3, I realized the show is an absolute failure.
Intended to be some type of peace loving save-the-world type of show on line with Rhino Wars, The Operatives completely misses many marks. The best way to describe the show is a military style marine conservation boondoggle.
I love television shows that use real military warriors. One Man Army, Stars Earn Stripes, Man Woman Wild…yeah, big fan. “The Operatives,” not a fan AT ALL…
First and foremost, knowing so many “Airsofters” exist out there and how many wannabe’s exist within the ops world, I hope such persons don’t think for a second “The Operatives” is reality because it is far from it.
Secondly, for the douche sticks who want to go fight alongside ISIS/ISIL, please, WATCH “The Operatives!”
I hope people see where I am going with this.
There is nothing remotely accurate about The Operatives…Tactics, Operational Planning, etc…where the hell is the leg work for the Intel? Guess that shit just gets thrown on real operators’ laps, then they go identify the location and just ransack the place.
Sorry, that’s not reality.
Missions derive from intelligence. Once such intelligence is created, missions get planned. Once missions are planned, rehearsals follow. Then more rehearsals. And more, and more, and more…until you get the green light. You see none of that crap in The Operatives.
What you see in “The Operatives” is just enough to get people killed.
How about this…never mind. Let’s just play a game here.
Below I will link the trailer of episode #3 for “The Operatives.” You tell us. How many of you think this crap is legit based off a mission planning and tactical standpoint. Next, you tell us the flaws you see JUST from the trailer. I assure you, there are a TON!!!!
Whoever the producer is for this show needs to be fired. No. He needs his ass kicked from some real no shit special operators for making them out to look like complete idiots. And, if this dude ever served in any special operations unit be it in the US or one of our allied nations, he needs his revocation of his past service….no shit, that’s how bad this really is.
Here is the crazy part….I see the magnitude of flaws and I was just some measly cop in the Air Force…you know, that white collar military branch that doesn’t know shit about combat operations…Yeah…
Want to see Episode #3 and play our little game? Here watch it…Whoever finds the most flaws, maybe someone will send you some Havok Journal/Blackside Concepts swag….You never know.
