Valor is one of a number of TV shows centered around the U.S. military that made their debut in the fall. It made an effort to get some things right, but at the same time, it managed to make its fair share of mistakes as well, whether because of narrative convenience, the need to complete the checklist for TV shows that are broadcast on The CW, or some other cause. What Did Valor Get Wrong? For starters, Valor is another TV show that is focused on special forces, which is something that it shares with The Brave and Seal Team.

‘The Crown’ Season 2 Review: Despite Focusing on Relationships, Netflix’s Drama Turns Too Dreary and Cold
There are far worse ways to study history than watching “The Crown” — high school history class comes to mind, especially at schools with misplaced teachers like Mr. Kraz.
