On the fence
27 July 2005 | by (Mechanicsburg, PA) – See all my reviews

I saw the majority of the 1st episode and thought it was a good story line.Some of the dialog between the troops seemed a little stereotypical of "Army talk".As a veteran I am watching with an eye of scrutiny more so than the average schmo.Some errors noticed were the female troops wearing lipstick which is an Army no no especially in a field environment.A medivac helicopter in episode 1 was a UH1 Huey model which may be possible but not likely since the Blackhawk model has been in use since the mid 80's.Some of the background scenery looks oh so California, which as it turns out is California.My biggest concern is the message that this show will be delivering.We have enough crap coming from the news networks that are painting our men and women as ugly tyrants.We don't need a show to reinforce the lies and the negativity of our mission.Agree with it or not our troops are doing their mission and not asking for approval.I hope the producers of this show keep it real without some political agenda.If week after week turns out to be gloom and doom with depressing overtones of "how bad it all is..Over There.." dump this show from your viewing schedule. Great widescreen presentation, good music and story flow so far.
