FOX will debut a Military Comedy..and I'm not sold yet....

January 10th is the premiere of a new military centered comedy on FOX.  I heard about it and was kind of a little excited.  I'm a succor for stuff like that....books, tv, movies....I love it all.  However, I also happen to be a stickler when it comes to what seems to amount to mocking the military.  First, lets check out what I'm talking about.


Like I said, I'm all for a military comedy!  I think its the perfect time to do it.  Military dramas are easy to do, comedies probably pose a little bit more of a challenge; and I get that.  MASH wasn't really a comedy, it was sort of a dramedy.  Despite knowing that most people involved in the show, including many of the actors, were very outspoken against the Viet Nam war and such, they still did a fairly good job of portraying a lot of accuracy.  There were faults no doubt, but I think they did a pretty fair job of walking the line between comedy and making fun.  There might be a lot of people my age (that 30 year mark..eek!) that remember Major Dad.  I absolutely loved that show, and if you don't know what I'm talking about you can find it on Netflix.  Major Dad, while not a workplace comedy like Enlisted, did an excellent job of pairing the funny with the realistic. 

Enlisted is an irreverent and heartfelt single-camera comedy about three brothers on a small Florida Army base and the group of misfits who surround them. 

It's a comedy, a farse if you will, and I get that.  It can't be 100% realistic because lets face it there's probably not a whole lot of room for humor in the military; and most of the things that are shown as funny in this show might get you in a whole lot of trouble.  Not to mention all the little mistakes that drove me so crazy I could barely pay attention.  The uniforms, the hair cuts, the facial hair...all that ridiculousness.  But have no fear, FOX is on it, realizing that the military community isn't a force to be trifled with.  I'm assuming there was a little bit of hell raised after the trailer hit the airwaves, and rightly so.  The guys over at Ranger Up/Rhino Den brought something to my attention.  Apparently FOX is having a "Spot the SNAFUs" contest when Enlisted Premiers on January 10th.  The video tells you a little bit more about the contest.



Check out Enlisted on Twitter and Facebook...and look for their Webisodes to watch while we wait for the premier.  I am so ready to "Spot the SNAFUs"!

  1. I'm actually REALLY excited for this show to finally be on. I saw a preview for it over the summer, but it didn't have a premier date or anything. I love that they're doing that contest too. It's a nice way for them to show appreciation to the troops, and I know Hubs will be all over it.
