Why did the US Military pick these clowns to represent EOD.
2 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am and have been an EOD Technician in the US Military for 20 years. I've served in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, and several other combat areas. With that being said, these guys are a couple of clowns. I'm not sure how they weren't killed or fired for the stunts they pulled.

Many of the scenes seemed to be staged and I can understand that with regards to keeping our EOD procedures confidential. We, as EOD Technicians, should not be sharing our sensitive procedures in an open forum like TV so the Taliban can learn what and how we do things.

As far as the show's appeal to the public, I think the average viewer without a military background will find the show interesting and exciting.

I will end this review with one comment. Why did the US military pick these guys to represent a very proud, physically fit, and close knit profession like Explosive Ordnance Disposal?
