Hollywood Rights A Wrong! Wait…What?!?
By RU Rob
We have chronicled our disdain for Hollywood on many occasions here on Ye Olde Rhino Den and it isn’t often that I get a chance to report something of the contrary. I even ripped on the very show that I am about to praise a couple of months ago on twitter, flat-out refusing to even give it a chance based on the inaccuracy of Army life based on the previews alone.
Evidently I wasn’t the only one who voiced my opinion and the producers of FOX’s Enlisted recognized the error of their ways. So much in fact, that they are having a contest where you get to point out all of the inaccuracies of their lingo, appearance, uniforms…the works… and tell FOX how jacked-up-like-a-football-bat they are. Then, you get a coin for helping them un-fuck themselves. Here is the official announcement from Enlisted.
Did you notice in the video that Geoff Stults was speaking our language? Even the little things like “SNAFU” and “shaving profile” make all the difference in the validity of a show in the eyes of a service-member or Veteran. This is a comedy and as we have all said many times, there is nothing funnier than the men and women in uniform. I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt and watch more than one show (because I know that the first one is going to be FUBAR). And while I haven’t seen an episode yet, I will say that the absence of Ranger Up gear in their off-duty time will most definitely be a no-go. We’re going to have to work on that.
Check out the Enlisted on Fox website for more information on the contest (to be updated soon) and head over to their Enlisted FB page and give it a liking, it is the least we can do for someone trying to right a wrong. Tell them that Ranger Up sent you to keep them squared away. DO IT NOW!!!
