Anyone seen this show on FX? It follows several troops in Iraq, a little graphic, similar to Saving Private Ryan. Let me know what you think. Wednesdays 10pm est.

It seems too fake to me. If it was an actual documentary then I'd watch it. Those guys could not capture the "AHHH" expression as well as someone in real life.

The GI hitting the guy (walking towards him while shooting) with an RPG, that blew the upper half off while the lower half kept walking a few more steps after, caught me a little off guard.

How fitting was the opening scene of a sargeant pissed off that he was babysitting a bunch of new recruits instead of going home like he expected.

The show gives me mixed emotions. I feel more compassion for the GI's that have to deal with this. I also feel bad for the innocent Iraqi's that get caught in the middle.
