A funny side of the war
6 August 1999 | by (Boston, Massachussets) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the few that show what can happen on a submarine full of unlikely sailors (included the nurses). This is not unlike the TV series CPO Sharkey and the movie "Down Periscope"

I would like to see this TV series in another language such as the German version mentioned above
