From Ron Howard so this might not suck.

Two things:

  1. That is the perfect expectation for a Ron Howard film. I'm serious. 
  2. I hate videos of film and TV creators talking about their work. Hate it unless there is some wit to it. Most of the time it's dorks wanting to get camera time to talk about their little show like it's really dealing in some heavy shit, man. Let me explain this world of soldiers to you. There's grit and camaraderie and action. No shit? Fuck you.

Looks like they're trying to tap into the gallows humor of Vet TV. I predict it's gonna be rather politically incorrect.

Can I watch this on CBS All Access?

I never even came close to combat (unless you count the bars and VD in Juarez and dealing with parents of the local girls in Lawton, OK), but it was bugging the absolute shit out of me every time a group of them clustered together when they were supposedly in danger.

It does feel a bit like Vet TV.

Ron Howard needs to make a series called 88 Kilo, and style it exactly like Arrested Development.

Could have just posted the trailer, but I like listening to Opie.

I don't get a good vibe from the trailer.

None of the wartime medical dramas they’ve come up with from Afghanistan and Iraq have been good.  This has to be the third or fourth one.    Everybody wants MASH without a decent cast.

It looks like a two-hour Tv show pilot, hitting pretty much every required key stereotype. Even the style looks like studio lot with standard flat key lighting and recycled set props.

But I only saw a couple of minutes of it, so maybe the other 98 are better.

LOVED the pilot. Have no idea where this story is going, but I want to see more. Production values are high, script is good, interesting cast.

It had a strong opening scene.

Best first line to a new TV show ever...

"I love....the way... you fuck me."

Spoken by a very fuckable woman, too.

I'm really liking this show. It's like Kelly's Heroes set in M*A*S*H. The 4 main characters Roback, Davis, Alvarez and Durkin are interesting. Plus Cristina Rodlo and Gage Golightly are hot af. I like the newb Petrocelli as comic relief. The goat makes me laugh. That story isn't over. The other backstories are interesting, too. I hope it gets picked up.

Yeah 3 episodes in and I'm still watching.  Some good stuff.  The Spanish chick, the chick the main character has been fucking, and the Doctor chick are all pretty damn fire.  Some funny scenes too.

Didn’t do anything for me. Bailed after 2 episodes 

Bingo.  First episode was just horrible (other than psycho bitch fucking all the time).  Let me know if the hotties end up scissoring, ill tune back in for that.

Can't believe there isn't more love for this show. Just finished S1 and it was great. Such a mashup (no pun intended) of military comedies. I'm sure the accuracy of military ops is complete horseshit, but I don't care. S1 was a fun ride and look forward to S2.

You can stream all episodes at Paramount Network with cable subscription.
