FOX’s Army life comedy ‘Enlisted’ premieres next week, and the producers are already reading viewers’ minds.
Yes, it’s full of mistakes, from uniform wear to grooming to one big armored vehicle screw-up. But, to make up for the oversight, the show is holding a “Spot Our Errors” contest.
If you watch the premier Jan. 10 at 9:30 pm/8:30 central, take notes on the SNAFUs and send them in, you’ll get a nifty Fort McGee challenge coin.
Nobody is more meticulous about equipment and appearance than a service member, and when the trailer hit the internet earlier this year, the fury was palpable.
In August, show creator Kevin Biegel told Army Times that they’ve since hired consultants to keep things technically accurate.
“Some would say I’m going overboard as far as trying to get things right, but I am crazy right now trying to get everything as right as possible,” he said. “That’s the stuff that we can’t screw up and I feel bad that we did screw some of that stuff up in the pilot.”‘
