The acting is horrendous, which is a pity as the budget is clearly big enough to make a decent shot of this. Way too much of Shemar Moore. He's a terrible actor. The story behind 'street', of how he ended up on the team is weak and poorly thought out. The whole series, while watchable, never once attempts to avoid the cheese, cheesy poses, cheesy one liners, cheesy shots of Shemar Moore with his top off for no story related reason.


High intensity cop show that I wasn't expecting, good story with characters that you could like, and I always fine Shemar Moore to be a likeable guy but he fits the role well as a serious leader of the SWAT team in LA put in a tough spot. For the first episode its off to an action packed start, lets hope they keep this going. Not your typical cop drama, and the right amount of action to enjoy the thrill ride.


I managed to get to episode 7, then I gave up. It got cheesy cheesy cheesy and I ended up not caring for any of the characters


Better than expected. Usually I find pilot episodes weak, but this one is a thrill!


Swat is not airing this week due to the virus. Please update the schedule.


Love this show! When I first heard the theme song, I had flashbacks of watching the original with Steve Forrest. It was 1976 and I was running around with my SWAT themes outfit my parents got me. Those were the days...


There were a few good episodes in season one.


Shows like this are exactly why people are turning en masse to Netflix and Amazon along with other channels like SyFy etc. instead of the old duds like CBS/NBC/ABC that keep spewing crap.
