Sea patrol is a crime drama/action adventure television show consisting of standalone episodes dealing with the lives and situations that the crew of the fictitious Royal Australian Navy (RAN) vessel must contend with on a day-to-day basis as sailors in the Navy. The show deals with crimes such as high-volume illegal fisheries, asylum-seekers and other major breaches in Australian maritime law. All of these adventures occur aboard the ship the HMAS Hammersley, which is a patrol boat designed for running interference on the Australian seas between Australia and those that would do her harm

The seasonal plots of the program have reoccurring themes such as Eastern European mercenaries running drugs and weapons such as biological components out of some of the outer islands of Australia and other governmental conspiracy theories such as a murdered high-level government biologist, who was working on some sort of weapon for the Australian government and while the crew of the Hammersley goes about solving the murder. In typical police procedural fashion they also become more and more entrenched in the conspiracy theory around the murdered biologist and the weapon that they were working on so not only is the show about various crimes, but it is also about relationships and trust that the crew has with one another and how those relationships are tested on a regular basis.

Along with the typical drug running overfishing and asylum seeking and biological weapons cases and mercenaries the crew of the Hammersley. Occasionally also has to deal with problems such as a coup against the Australian government and trying to prevent it from being overthrown by a group of international terrorist experts the crew had to come up with a plan to prevent the crew from occurring, and thereby sending the Western world into an economic downturn, from which it might not recover.

Anyone that likes crime drama/action adventure is sure to find something of interest in Sea patrol. Especially if they are injured, military oriented crime dramas, which is a unique spin on the police procedural is sort of like a cross between a forensics police procedural and anti-terrorism Special Forces military action program, with all the requisite guns and explosions and military jargon that any viewer could want. The viewer is also sure to become thoroughly invested in the life of one or more of the characters and be kept on the edge of their seats by what is taking place in the life of their favorite character during any given episode.

Sea Patrol is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (68 episodes). The series first aired on July 5, 2007.
