Just watched it now and is excellent! Definetely worth a watch! :D

The adverts are :bad-words: annoying but at least there's only a 30 second advert online compared to 5 minute advert on TV :lol:

Im rewatching Ultimate Force from the start, im halfway into second series. i found the third and forth series werent as good,one of my greatest episodes was the fighting the French Special Forces in series 2. I dont know why they brought a female in?? :-?

Have you watched The Unit, an American series featuring Delta Force, if not theyre worth a watch.

Initially when the show was first made, it had the imput of Chris Ryan. After that it was just plain terrible.

SAS - The real story is a great watch, an excellent insight into what these guys do and have acheived. It's inspired me to, one day, try and join their ranks.

Thanks for the link Ares :D

The first person to run a special operations unit in the Western Desert during WW2 was a chap called Popski and his group was known as Popski's Private Army. Once this unit started to do well a number of people climbed on the Band waggon and claimed all the credit for setting these things up, but the originator was a Officer called Popski
