WHO HAS THE BEST SHOW ON TV?
11 August 2003 | by (Hampstead, NH, USA) – See all my reviews

THE MAN IN THE CAP R. LEE ERMEY, that's who!

MAIL CALL is the perfect show for people like me who are unhealthily obsessed with military history, but just can't listen to their Ben Stein-esque history teachers any longer. R. Lee Ermey is both informative and entertaining. He has the coolest job in the world, I am convinced.

WATCH THE SHOW TODAY, MAGGOT!
