Squaddies play silly buggers
18 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

If you've ever been in the Army this show brings every depressing moment back to you. Since it's the British Army all the officers are half wits, the noncoms masochists and the private soldiers drunken, stupid oafs. Jeremy Flynn (Paddy Garvey) and Robson Green (Dave Tucker)are probably the most stupid of all the squaddies, although John Bowe as the kernel (sic) is a few stubbies short of a six pack. Perhaps this series is anti army? If so I applaud it.
