YES!!!

got to remember also the the FX network is not the biggest network on TV, like cbs and HBO...Band of Brothers had a huge buget compared to over there, but over there i think is doing a good job with the money they got.....

The episode today was really good I thought. It wasn't like what the commercials advertised though, sort of. Sucks about the one guys leg though.

It's disturbing that FOX will spoon feed you entertainment drama instead of publicize real news from "over there". I'm still waiting for my cousin to come back from Iraq. We e-mail, and he calls when he can. I haven't seen an episode but I am curious as to how close their depiction is to the reality I know to exist over there. I have a suspicion that as TV does, it glamourizes some things and leaves others out. See any Army commercials during the show?

It's like most war movies or shows, it has it's facts and bases but it needs some touch ups to keep it "entertaining" for most.

I like it though, it is gorey and violent and they don't bleep out foul language as well so that adds to the realism I suppose. Just check it out, it's pretty good.

It was just on now, but its over. I just had it on in the backround. The theme was playing at the end, which I really liked because it sounded very similar to some Floyd. Know where I can find that theme Grunt?

OMG like they said "< poo >" on regular TV!!! Call the TV police!!!

couldn't find it....i bet if you look a the credits of the next show you will....
TriggerHappy1

No big deal, guess Ill have to watch the show to hear it!
Glassjaw

The first episode the one black dude, King or Angel I think was writing a song and he sang it for another one of the charecters. Then at the end they had some guy singing it with instruments. So if you didn't understand that, it is an original song composed by the people who make the show.
redneckdeerhunter

yeah angle is the one that wrote it the other black dude is a racist i think and at the end of the first episode he said "i capped this dude right here"
Glassjaw

Yeah, but the sniper dude shot him. I can't remember their names yet, damn.
redneckdeerhunter

yeah angle is the one that shot him he has a m4 carbine with a scope

I don't think I'll bother with this show. I have a feeling that it won't be anything close to realistic. Not the same feeling as the poster who's cousin is still there, because I know that it's not as bad as the news and the anti-war protesters make it out to be. The previews I saw showed the Soldiers wearing the 3 ID (M) patch, one of the divisions that started the invasion. This show in it's first season of what 30 episodes at most, will probably have more combat, more violence, and show that squad or platoon seeing more action than the entire division did in it's entire tour.

yeah but the show still is badass

I just watched my first episode, and I really liked it. I like it so much I watched it over SportsCenter. It was the one where people kept trying to smuggle Arabs by a checkpoint in cars, and they wouldn't stop so the guys had to shoot them. One guy got his leg blown off so they got an Arab replacement. I have no idea what it's like over there (no pun intended), but this show sure does portray what I know is combat very well. Two thumbs up.




Anybody new when it comes on, I'm not staying up that late again.
redneckdeerhunter

g36 monkey

Roll Tide
