It’s not everyday you get to catch a sneak peek of a brand new tv show, so color me surprised when I found an email in my inbox announcing FOX’s brand new military focused comedy, ENLISTED and super secret codes to watch a few episodes before it premieres on Friday, January 10, 2014 at 9:30pm EST.
Here’s a little bit of the backstory about ENLISTED from its producer, Kevin Biegel:
ENLISTED is about three brothers serving together on an Army post in Florida. It’s a workplace comedy, except the workplace is the Army….While a comedy, ENLISTED will be dramatic at times. It has to be. We can never be M*A*S*H – no show can, M*A*S*H is an all-time great – but I wanted to follow its lead in combining comedy with heavier issues. I don’t believe you can do a show about the military in 2014 and not deal with things like PTSD or losing a loved one.
I just finished watching the first three episodes of the season and I’ve gotta say it’s funny! I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I had something to look forward to watching on Friday night television and now I have something to add to my DVR!
I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that I noticed a lot of technical boo-boos, like why is everyone’s hair so long and why isn’t anyone wearing their covers/hats, but over all, it looks really promising. In addition to the preview episodes, I jumped on YouTube to catch the ENLISTED webisode series about the cast’s experience at bootcamp.
The cool thing is that the ENLISTED team is dedicated to fixing all of the SNAFUs and is challenging soldiers, veterans, and their families to spot the them and tell them so they can get them right!
