A desire for authenticity

Told like a documentary, the show was shot in a former military base in Aisne (Hauts-de-France). The course was designed from A to Z by a quartet of professionals, all trained in Special Forces: Ryan, ex-sniper; Victor, ex-member of the close guard of so-called sensitive personalities; Crao, who worked in counterterrorism; and Bije, who protected the higher authorities. All of them use pseudonyms. Always bound by Defense secrecy, they remain discreet about the missions they have performed in the past… Ryan, chief instructor, hesitated before participating: " We are not used to being in front of the cameras. J I had a lot of questions. But when I understood the concept correctly, I liked it. I was interested to see the state of mind of these civilians ready to engage. "The condition of their participation? Authenticity! " These are real drills," says Ryan. But inevitably, we had to adapt to the TV format. " We have no weapons, no helicopter, so obviously we weren't able to show everything. " For the purposes of filming, the length of the course was also adjusted.

No stereotypes, but a heavy atmosphere

Forget the stereotype of the soldier screaming at all costs! Special Forces: The experience breaks with the image conveyed by previous shows of the genre on M6, such as Garde à vous or Le Sens de Effort. " What we see on TV is super reducing for the army: soldiers who yell, who belittle, who humiliate. It is not the army! We are not always at attention you with your hand on the seam of the pants, "Ryan defends. On the contrary, over the course of the episodes, these four impressive fellows prove to be endearing.

One caveat, however: the heavy atmosphere that reigns in the first episode. The faces are closed, the bodies suffer, the mind is failing. And our morale takes a big hit! Obviously, in this complicated period for everyone, we have some doubts ... Will the public be there? Fortunately, once the foundations have been laid, the pace picks up and the spirit of cohesion that is developing among civilians is interesting to follow.
