They should have showed how real beheadings take place. The terrorists use a butcher knife to hack the head off. Not some big sword.

You know no war movie/series gets everything right but having said that i think this show really tries to. I do believe the CIB goes over the wings because being paraqualified dont mean shit to being in combat. I like the series and will continue to try to watch and support it so maybe we will get more.

One thing I did notice, and this is real nit-pickey, is that the flash suppressor on Sgt. Scream's M4 is the fake "press-on" type similar to the one on my Rock River M4gery. Other than that, is is a good show.

I posted earlier about this episode but too many "sensitive" types got their panties in a twist because I failed to mention that I was giving away the ending. Hell, I thought my thread was going to be a dupe so I didn't think giving a warning in the title would be necessary.

Let's just run with your thread, Hardcorps1775!

I caught the premier and then this episode, missed all the ones in between. Not enough action in this show, 75% of it is soap opera like the drunk wife crashing the car. I conclude this series sucks ass.

You conclude wrong.

Good assessment. Like you I hated the first ones and seem to have warmed up to it.

I noticed a flash suppressor with the slots filled.
I was also wondering if it's common to have a SAW for a house raid? I'm not HSLD, but isn't a SAW like a support weapon? Not really intended for CQB?

Who is the actress that plays the drunken cheatin' wife ?. There is nothing on IMDB or FX web-sites. She has some nice.....uh, hands.

The show is getting better. Wish they'd cut out ALL the back home shit though.

I agree. This did have the potential to be a good show, but Bochco is trying too hard to maintain his formulatic style, and the show has turned into another "Hill Street/NYPD Blues" type soap opera.
I watch it, because I want it to be good. But I'm always disappointed.

No, I only found out that 50 percent of the people who voted either have bad taste or haven't actually watched more than a few minutes of the show.

That would be the "Sippowitz" character.

OMG, I watched 10 minutes of that show and couldn't stomach it any longer.


WHO THE HELL HAS CONVERSATIONS DURING A FRIGGING FIRE FIGHT?

You really aren't qualified to comment, only having watched 10 minutes of one show. And as for the conversations...hey genius...it's a FUCKING TV SHOW, not a combat documentary.

13 out of 25 ARCOMr's said it sucked, 12 out of 25 said it didn't. Any tv series that makes you quit watching after 10 minutes qualifes for the suck ass category. Over There sucks ass

I think the show is in poor taste. Fricking fiction about the war while US men and women are fighting and dying.

+1 I dig it so far. Keep in mind it's TV show folks. And I'll add, other things happen in a soldier's
life other than fire fights. Trust me, I've been there.

Sound like some of you guys seem to lose interest in a show once the thought provoking conversation starts and the explosions and shooting stops.

By the way, anyone ever notice that the Sgt always holds his M4 by the magazine even though he as a verticle foregrip ? Guess it's hard to get the right length KAC rail panels over there too! Ha!
