The show is outstanding.
18 October 2008 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

I do not enjoy television much as many shows that are suppose to be comedies have little humor in them, but this show is really funny. It also deals with what is happening in the real world while making it interesting by adding humor. I remember when stationed in Big Spring long ago, some of airmen went down to a civilian hospital to donate blood at their request, and the doctor with the needle in my arm found out that I enlisted in Atlanta, so he started talking about how great George Wallace (governor of the neighboring state of Alabama) is. Since he controlled the needle in my arm, I did not say what I really thought of George Wallace (or Lester Maddox of Georgia), which was much different from what he thought. This show reminds me a little of those days in Big Spring in the heart of west Texas. All the actors in the show are really great as they grab my attention and hold on to it until the show is over.
