NBC TV Show starring Benjamin Bratt and Dennis Hopper. It has been pro-military (sort of) up until today.

I think it's a TV show based in the Pentagon's E-ring. I saw an add for it while watching football. That's the closest I'll come to watching it. Typical Hollywood fiction fiction.

E-Ring is a show situated in the E-Ring of the Pentagon. It cronicles imaginary special ops controlled by the military.

E-Ring has been the pleasant surprise of the season. I had huge doubts with Dennis Hopper on it, but it has been almost as enjoyable from a not-pandering-to-liberal-politics viewpoint as "24" last season. I cringed when I saw this shows' plot, but the series has been something I think most Freepers would enjoy.

Hopefully, this episode won't change my mind when I watch it (Tivo'ed, wife is watching the Johnny Cash thing).

Maybe if the media wishes hard enough, and collectively clicks their ruby red slippers fast enough, all the butchers in the Middle East will suddenly turn Christian?

WOW !! NBC is on a role tonight. First this, then an incitement against the Minutemen on Law and Order promote as an episode that "will enrage America." They've got some bigoted scum over there that needs cleaning out.

Yup. I gave up on Law and Order a long time ago. One would think that a show with all of those talented people could just entertain. One would be wrong.

Hey, that is new and original. One would have thought it would be the other way around.

Then if wouldn't have been fiction. It would have been an everyday news story.

"or maybe that was Hedda Hopper?"

Or William Hopper, her son. He played detective Paul Drake on the Perry Mason show.

Hopper has been very busy as both a producer and actor for quite a while.

He's been in 31 films or TV series since 2000.

A pretty good show. It really shows the hoops our people have to jump through just to get something done. As for tonight's show, I had my hand on the remote ready to dump it, but I'll give them a chance. Law and Order I watched for a decade before I turned it off in the middle of an episode and haven't watched any of them since.

I thought "E-Ring" was an OK show until this episode portraying "Christian extremists" taking over a mosque, holding hostages, and blowing up government rescuers. Based on the portrayal of the angry "Christian" captors, none of the writers or producers have actually ever met any real Christians. Disturbing, but hardly surprising.

He lives near me & he is not a Republican. He even has a gigantic NO WAR sign painted on his gate.

I think he was a character in one of the early "24" series too.

I guess In have to take that back. He is a registered republican....but he still had that big NO WAR sign on his compound gate.

Now, I have to go watch Blue Velvet.....for the 100th time.

Hopper's place is a block from Golds Gym in Venice, CA.
He has at least 2 lots surrounded by industrial gates & fencing with barbed wire. I live about 4 miles away, but pass by his place often.

It's been a great show so far, taking the sting out of losing JAG and waiting for "24". But tonight's plot is so ridiculous I skipped it. And two weeks ago a subplot had a journalist being lectured and excoriated for leaking the name of a female CIA agent [wonder where that idea came from? - nudge-nudge]. If the show dgenerates into a West Wing with military iniforms I'll dump it in a heart-beat.

Two of the last three Law & Orders have been stinkers. The Minutemen prosecuted tonight, and "Christians" resorting to bombs and terrorism to keep a "loving husband" [Schaivo?] from "allowing his wife to die with dignity." A few more liberal wet-dreams as plots and I am through with this once-great show.

I was a fan of the show since the start of the season. I usually visit the website for the show to get an idea for the weeks episode.

This week I made the decision to watch "Stacked" live instead of taped.

I have tried to like this program, but they are just so PC. I give up. Last nights episode was the last one I'll watch.

Can you imagine if they made Back to the Future today, they would have had to change that scene with Doc and the terrorists.....probably would have made them evil Minutemen or something.

I actually was also quite disappointed in his acting on E-Ring. I'm not sure I've ever seen him in anything else, but knowing he is a big name, I expected him to be a better actor. He seems stilted or something.

E-Ring has just jumped the PC shark.

The latest episode treated us to; a female lawyer Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Ops who just happens to be the romantic interest for the sensistive male lead Spec Ops Major, another female lawyer (who happens to be a rape victim) in Bosnia collecting evidence/testimony against evil Christian Serbian soldiers who set up a rape factory, a haunted beautiful blonde Bosnian rape victim/witness, praise for the International Court, gratuitous qoutes of President Clinton, and male-chauvinist American Generals. In short, this series has become a typical liberal sript-writers' wet-dream soap-opera view of the Pentagon and Special Operations. I'm surprised there wasn't a pitch in there for gun-control!

No need for me record/watch this series any longer.

Oh? I haven't been able to find that announcement.

Accepting this as so, good riddance! The show had great potential to tell the Armed Forces' story accurately with action and drama (think "Victory At Sea"). Instead it just had to slide into the sewer that is Hollywierd's liberal/socialist/communist fantasy-agenda.

This we don't need.
