Good Show, Except....
28 January 2012 | by (North Pole) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy this series. It is very realistic. I believe this will help the people in the US understand what our military personnel are up against in Afghanistan and other parts of the world.

I however, did not like the way the EOD personnel handled themselves with regards to the task they were performing. At times, they were borderline incompetent and or were acting cheesy. I would expect better discipline for a special group in the service.

When you are on a mission, you need to be focused. Not following SOP (Standard Operating Procedures) or personnel not communicating with each other is unacceptable. You are dealing with other peoples lives.

I can understand that they sometimes have to blow off steam in certain situations to cope, but come on people, get serious when you leave the base on a mission.

Having not been in the military shouldn't have any bearing on my review/opinion of the series.

I am anxiously waiting for Season 2, Bomb Patrol: Afghanistan" (2012) to start. I hope the things I have commented on improve. I want to see our servicemen be the best.

God Bless The USA and The Military
