It's OK. I have had a hard time choosing every week between it and In Plain Sight. I liked last season better.

I think there are almost too many story lines and they change so often. It's alright... I had a hard time with season 1... I really didn't like how white-trashy the enlisted people were. I mean I know they are all out there, but I have only met a small few.

Like many others I don't like how the FRG is represented. Sometimes the acting doesn't seen natural it almost seems forced?? I don't know how to describe it.

Do you really want me to tell you what I feel about this show...I have a long list..lol

It's ok, there are a few emotions that the show gets and other story lines which I don't feel correctly portray our life. Some of the storylines are so absurd and not at all how real Army life is like, I keep telling myself it's just TV!

That's true of any show you watch that has content you are familiar with. When I watch shows that portray teachers, I am always critiquing the content. I just watch it knowing not everything as it seems.

Roger that!

I have the same problem with action and war films with the napalm grenades, non-ricocheting bullets and slow moving RPGs. I mean if they are gonna spend like a gazillion bucks on CGI effects, why not do the thing right.

Right...and doctors don't make out with their interns in elevators either, but it makes for great TV. Especially if their names are "McDreamy" and "McHottie"
