An honest look at the modern squaddie with the black humour of the forces
I watched the first of these with little expectation and was shocked at how good and how accurate it is . It's rude , non-politically correct and funny as frig .
I have been addicted to it ever since and my wife who isn't from a military background loves it as well .
The acting is superb from the coarse squaddie up to the CO and everyone in between and they have captured every caricature one has ever served with or for and managed to keep them fresh and interesting - stupid awards , dangerous made up games to keep the adrenaline running and pass the time , the vicious insulting of comrades and the vitriolic defence of comrades all written beautifully and balanced as only the forces can manage .
The only criticism is that they all have most of the kit they need but the writers had to make some concession I suppose .
Watch this and enjoy . BUT if you are are a PC loon then don't bother you will hate it , its reality with a sublime humour .
