Great historical show!
8 March 2003 | by (Columbus, OH) – See all my reviews

Granted, inasmuch as I watch the History Channel (mostly due to the lack of better programming on TV) I do get tired of the same narrators picking apart WWII or the Civil War over and over. I really believe that THC is on to something with "Mail Call." R. Lee gives a outstanding performance, it's a rarity that you'll hear one of the Marines answer the narrator of a show with "Yes, Gunnery Sergeant." All in all, a very well executed show.
