Oh. I've got an obscure one that actually has proven to be pretty good to watch, although we're kind of treading heavily into sci-fi, but not that far off.

Space Above and Beyond, one of the shows that Fox killed after the first season but was pretty good. It's basically space Marine Aviators who can also pull some ground ops, like a good version of the main character in CoD Infinite Warfare. Still, it was a good watch.

Not really military themed, but maybe closer to the same vein of NCIS would be two more of my favorites; Burn Notice and The Blacklist.

The way that they all work together on Burn Notice, that cast is awesome. Plus, I'll say it, I think more of Burn Notice than Evil Dead when Bruce Campbell comes to mind. But Jeffery Donovan is really good in that series.

The Blacklist is also really good, I rather enjoy the whole crew there. Especially Reddington, played by James Spader, he's really awesome. Just the way that he goes from a friendly and amicable approach to killing someone in cold blood effortlessly and yet believable, it's pretty cool.
