In the words of reporter Joe Gould, this seems like the type of the show that the Army would want to have zero involvement with, and for good reason. For instance, check out the luxurious locks on these three.
“Enlisted,” a sitcom from “Cougar Town” co-creator Kevin Biegel, is based on three brothers in the same squad at a small post in northern Florida. There are a couple things wrong with that sentence.
Anyway, the premise is that oldest brother (pictured in the middle) Sgt. Pete Waits is sent home from Afghanistan after he sucker punches a superior officer (while deployed with the 101st? At least that’s what his combat patch suggests). As punishment, he’s assigned as squad leader above his little brothers, one a corporal and the other a private.
According to TVLine’s Michael Ausiello, “he’s tasked with leading the notoriously slacker-like Rear Detachment (soldiers whose days consist of washing tanks and getting high).” Ouch. Apologies to anyone on Rear D right now.
This is one of those shows where all the fun will be in picking out the inaccuracies. Will you tune in?
The trailer has hit the internet.
