One television critic wrote: "The breakout performance comes from Brian J. Smith playing a
green first lieutenant, Matthew Scott, who's totally unprepared for what happens

the seat of his pants. Smith, a relative unknown fresh out of Juilliard (and

the right notes and constantly demonstrates a deep natural talent for exhibiting
nuance and connection."
