a 'soap opera' with some MTV drama for good measure
21 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this series was horrible!!!

& before anyone harps on my comments, I too served in the Navy, for six years, aboard fast attack submarines.

Why was so much time wasted on the deck crew guy with the knocked up girlfriend back home? This entire storyline was a complete waste of time in my opinion. I wish I just could have fast forwarded through this nonsense.

And, an entire episode spent on how tough it is being away for six months!! I deployed on a Mediterranean cruise in the late 80s. We only received mail when we pulled in to port; certainly didn't have pay phones on board to call home whenever we felt like it, and certainly couldn't go topside to get a look at sunlight and breathe fresh air. Sorry.

And I found it amazing how the 'new Navy' is so politically correct with the Shellback ceremony. Are there any newly frocked Chiefs out there?? Has that ceremony changed any?? How is the Chief's Initiation not hazing but just about everything else is? When I received my dolphins (qualified in submarines), it hurt to put a t-shirt on for almost a month! I got them pounded in by two thirds of the crew and I was better for it. The 'newbies' and non-quals these days are coddled. Back in the days I was in, the new guys kept their mouths shut, did what they were told and listened. Nowadays, if a new guy feels he's being 'picked on' heads can and do roll! A complete reversal I just started to see brewing before my enlistment was up. And it was part of why I chose not to re enlist.

It would have been interesting to see more on that aviator who was grounded for having to land in Iraq. The review boards, etc. But alas, we had to keep going back to how the preggie girlfriend back home is doing.

And while I realize that the propulsion spaces are off limits, there are plenty of other stories that could have been told about other areas of the ship; machine shops, etc.

And how bout that Command Master Chief! On subs he was called COB, for chief of the boat. Thank God we 'bubbleheads' didn't have to put up with such boot camp nonsense.

Don't get me wrong. While I appreciate what all branches of the services do and the sacrifices they make, I just thought this series was a waste of time for the most part.
