Goofs

Though the F/A-18 is primarily known as a single seat fighter/attack aircraft the use of the two seat model in front line combat is well known. The current model F/A-18F Super Hornet is a two seat aircraft with the second seat occupied by a Weapon Systems Officer (WSO). Therefore Glenn is a necessary partner to Zeke on the aircraft.

Best New HBO Series
6 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

I am having the best time watching "The Brink." It's a funny, clever, fast moving half hour of t.v. If you're not paying attention, you'll miss so many great lines. Tim Robbins is hysterical as Secretary of State. Reminds me of Charlie Wilson; womanizer, drinker, but smart as heck. Jack Black is not my favorite comedian but he is winning me over in this series. John Larrouquette plays the fanatical religious ambassador to perfection. Pablo Schreiber is a lovable screw up. I don't think of Esai Morales as a comedic actor but he plays comedy really well. I could go on and on about each character so I'll conclude with this. Each and everyone of their performances knocks it out of the park. I applaud the writers of this great show. If this series is not picked up for a second season, I'll be terribly disappointed.
