If you like Drama mixed in with personal problems then have a look
If you like Drama mixed in with personal problems then have a look, I myself love these types of shows Rescue Me The Closer, In Plain sight are a few that come to mind how I would describe The Guard. They really hit the nail on the head on how our Government under funds the Coast Guard, Border Patrol for example.
The Episode Fight or Flight takes a good hard look at the men and women of the guard face, such as a rescue helicopter that doesn't have a hoist or it takes hours to arrive if one is available. People haven't rated this show very high and I can understand why they would it because they aren't from Canada and don't realize how bad the situation is with civil servants. Our Government thinks the people are better serve by having pencil pusher rather than I Helicopter that's 40 to 50 years old and spends more time with the mechanic than actually doing what its suppose to do that would be to "fly".
I sure to some might not believe that this really happens or that I am exaggerating, well I'm sorry but the truth what it is grim. Now the show does show many different situations and I am sure some do happen frequently but I'm also sure there are more days that are quiet then action packed. Just like any civil servant job where human being risk their lives to save someone's else life.
Just for honoring the brave men and women I give this show a 7 because guts the writer have of showing the viewers the truth and isn't afraid to do so. Its also one of the better Canadian made shows that I wouldn't even dare to watch
