First off, I see a lot of low ratings coming from, I am guessing, Brits that are upset by the lack of respect given to the RAF in this production. They are not wrong. Basically the only RAF presence is depicted as jerks. Apologies to the Brits. From watching a lot of British TV and movies I know they get annoyed by our arrogant idea that we single-handedly won the war, or basically our arrogance in general. This production is definitely waving the American flag. If you can put that and the questionable choices of accents used by some of the actors aside, the story is very compelling. I have watched the first 5 episodes that have aired and have found myself literally at the edge of my seat during some of the air combat scenes. My only suggestion is to not get too attached to the characters. If you were a fan of Game of Thrones you know what I mean. It is sometimes hard to keep track of who is who and hard to tell who is talking during air combat scenes because they are wearing masks. If you put on closed captioning, it help. All in all, I find this entertaining and recommend you give it a try. I look forward to watching it each week. It is slow moving and builds from week to week. Don't give up if you are not instantly drawn in by the first episode. I have read it is also not historically accurate. There is an article somewhere that points out the fact from the fiction. This did not bother me because I wasn't looking for a documentary. I am a bit of a history nerd, however, so I also like knowing the facts the story is based on. Since the characters are based on real people, don't Google them if you don't want spoilers. I made that mistake with one of them. Lesson learned. Didn't Google anyone else after that. Once again, sorry Brits for the diminished role of the RAF in this production. The RAF deserves more respect than what it got here. I know there are several British actors portraying Americans in the cast (more than actual Americans, I think), but this is definitely an all-American, baseball and apple pie, flag waving production and the focus is on an American squadron's role in World War II. So, if you choose to watch, you will know what to expect.
