Goofs

The USMC Marines from Camp Genoa are seen in town in their digital (deployment) uniforms. Marines cannot wear those off base other than being in actual field training or combat. For the bar and town scenes, they would be in some combination of the Alpha or Bravo uniform, the dress green blouse and trousers with the Khaki shirt and tie. Or at more formal events, in their blues. See more »

Quotes

Sugar Bates: [looking at three dead bodies, & a recently released ex-convict, in his bar] It's what you call in the bible "a clusterfuck of epic proportions"

Worth the commitment. Wow.
22 March 2020 | by Chi-Town-2See all my reviews

Masterpiece of a series. It's important to get thru the first 4 episodes. Those didn't grab me, initially. (I appreciated them later on 2nd and 3rd viewings).

There are characters, and scenes, and quite a few episodes, that stack up with some of the best in television history. And I'm 50, and have watched TONS of stuff. Epic. With a lot of fizz and sizzle along the way.

Doesn't take itself too seriously, yet can be completely engrossing at times. At least half of the actors in this are highly outstanding, and completely dedicated to their performance.

Highly recommended.
