Trivia

This series gave Dizzy Flores an actual name. In the novel, Flores was a male, and a very minor character. He was referred to as "Dizzy" several times during his one scene, and it is unclear as to whether that was his name or a nickname. In the 1997 Starship Troopers movie, he was turned into a female love interest, though it is still never clearly stated as to whether or not "Dizzy" is her legal name. On the Roughnecks series, one of the writers just decided to give Isabel as the legal first name, hence "Isabel 'Dizzy' Flores." See more »

Quotes

Pvt. Johnny Rico: [after saving Higgins and General Redwing] All right, apes, we still have pests to control!
Gen. Miriam Redwing: Rico! Thanks for the save, Sergeant. I'm not complaining, but you should have killed me to keep what I know from that brain.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: That was Plan B.
Gen. Miriam Redwing: Very good. There's no way I'm allowing a unit this effective to be split up.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: You'll assign us a new lieutenant?
Gen. Miriam Redwing: No. I don't have another one to spare.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: Then...
Gen. Miriam Redwing: I'm offering you a battlefield promotion, son.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: Me, an L. T. ?

What can I say?
23 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

I just can't get enough of this show. Saw it in syndication and it just blew me away. It does a good job creating the illusion of the war with the bugs. The music is what first grabbed by attention, and the excelent writing kept me there. Decent visuals with plot situations that did not seemed to be contrived. Good serises for kids, but also enjoyable by adults. Any chance the last few episodes will be made?
