Ladies and gents, the good news is, last week (no doubt thanks to our plug here) the touching and clever comedy Enlisted, set on a stateside Army post while most of the troops are deployed, had its best ratings week — over 3 million viewers. That sounds great, and the fact that the show’s up week overt week is good, but it isn’t enough.
This show is what a lot of you guys say you want: it’s a depiction of the military that shows soldiers as real people, and that treats military values with care and respect. The cast and crew worked their hearts out to bring 13 episodes to Fox.
So go out and watch it (or DVR it, for crying out loud, you kids) so that there are more viewers this week, too. And next week… so that the advertisers want to be on this show. And the network executives greenlight next year’s episodes, and all the talented folks who work on the show are rewarded for their efforts and their decency towards us.
Kevin was a former Special Forces weapons man (MOS 18B, before the 18 series, 11B with Skill Qualification Indicator of S). His focus was on weapons: their history, effects and employment. He started WeaponsMan.com in 2011 and operated it until he passed away in 2017. His work is being preserved here at the request of his family.
