Mindless Stupidity
29 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll agree that things were at least digestible right through the hook, but then I began to gag. First up, the sheer stupidity of a supposed elite soldier who, while traveling incognito, gives herself away because she can't resist the urge to administer Tylenol, in the middle of the night, to a boy who seems a thousand times tougher than she is. Then there's the attorney guy who keeps revealing everything he has learned to the conniving co-worker whom he knows has already betrayed him. Oh, and let's not forget the husband who offers no resistance to the suggestion by the military to just cremate the supposed remains of his wife--no second opinion, no independent confirmation, no nothing, just "ok, Colonel, sure thing." My wife and I never called our TV stupid so many times before.
