FOX debuts a new sitcom tonight called Enlisted. Before you read any further I am going to say that from a military stand-point, the premier will drive you crazy. But, and it is a big but, the producers of Enlisted recognized that they screwed-the-pooch and are offering you a chance to tell them just how bad they sucked at the pilot (trust me it gets better as the season progresses).

All you have to do is write down all of the inaccuracies of the pilot and send them to FOX (we don’t have the address yet but check back with us and we will). They, in turn, will send you a challenge coin from the show. Pretty freaking cool.

But that is too damn easy for the folks of the Ranger Up Nation so we are going to take it a step further.

Might be fun. Full disclosure, the guys at RangerUp are friends and great people.
and they are all former Rangers.

Based upon the commercials for it, I have NO interest in watching it. Based upon them I hope it dies so quickly that it doesn’t get to ‘episode 2.’

Agreed, it doesn’t portray our military in a very good light. (didn’t seem that funny, either)

I definitely will not be watching.

Anybody who ridicules our military is garbage in my book.

My flight from IAH to PDX had this pilot on the TV and nothing else. It played 5-6 times in 4.5 hours with nothing else but ads. Towards the end of the flight, I was dreading the end of the ads. Taking off the headphones didn’t help, because I had the stupid episode memorized by that point. Worst flite ever.

Just got finished reading The Last Centurion by John Ringo. It is surprisingly appropriate for this thread, as the troops involved become a part of a 'reality' TV show that is all too real. It's an awesome "military science fiction" story (not much actual SF involved other than it taking place a few years in the future). He tears the global warming alarmists and the press right out of the water amongst other things. I really like his stuff,

Is this a rewrite of Gomer Pyle, USMC? Mocking the military, what fun. What ever happened to shows like “Victory at Sea”, “Navy Log”, “Combat”? Can we expect “Enlisted” to devolve into another anti-war screed like “MASH, 4077”?
Interesting to have “Enlisted” premier so close to the “Lone Survivor” release.
Yes, I understand there is plenty of humor associated with the military. “No time For Sergeants”, Bill Mauldin’s “Willie and Joe” ccme to mind. It would be helpful if the writers had some military background.

If one were to write a screen play based on a modern day Infantry squad filled with homosexuals and females, the opportunity for both humor and tragedy would be limitless.
