    The Wanted will premiere on NBC on Monday, 20 July at 10:00 PM. It showcases the efforts by intelligence experts and journalists to hunt down accused terrorists and war criminals. The first episode features the hunt for war criminals involved in the genocide in Rwanda.

    One of the stars is a very dear friend of mine. He served over 20 years as an Army Ranger and Special Forces soldier. He was the reason I joined the Army and helped me all the way through the process of getting a ROTC scholarship. Please give the show a shot and see what you think. Here is the link of my hometown article on the show:

    I'm sure there are articles on TV and entertainment sites, I just haven't checked.

    If they'd have a sniper take out the morons at the end of each show, I'd watch.

    We don't usually watch reality/documentary shows on the networks. But since you recommended it, I added to my recording schedule.

    The preview looks good. And it can't be all bad based on the controversy it has stirred such as in this Broadcasting & Cable article.
    Good grief! Does everyone just talk out their posterior?

    What the show is focusing on according to this article deserves attention.
    Adam Ciralsky already has one Emmy for a piece on NBC Nightly news. He has the credential's. See this NBC story on Hezbollah banks under attack in Lebanon as an example.

    Your friend Roger seems to be in good company.

    Yes he is, and from a purely selfish perspective, why didn't they credit him with being a former Green Beret like Scott was credited with being a former Seal?

    Interesting show -- very immediate, very tense. It has the feel of a documentary, but I also found myself waiting for a sniper shot to the head, or a "This is not real" disclaimer.

    4/5 - season recording set.

    My receiver lost the signal at 43 minutes in. Did not come back until they were all sitting with the "Tango". I could not figure out how they got him to talk to them and why?

    In case anyone was still interested in this show - my friend Roger just told me that NBC is having a "crisis of conscience" in regards to airing the rest of the episodes. Hopefully I am not violating anything confidential, but he did not say it was confidential. He said they are looking at Fox. He promised to keep me updated.
