2. I will only be watching this...

...if and when the soldiers that have served there weigh in on it. If they think it is exploitation, I won't watch it. If they think it's a good thing to get the word out about what it is like over there, then I will.

3. I forgot the name of the producer for the show...
but when he was interviewed by Esquire, he was asked why he was making it now instead of 20 years from now. His answer was: "I'll be lucky if I can take a shit 20 years from now."

Yeah, that's a real motivator for me to watch the show now.

Whatever.

5. Steven Bochco (NYPD BLUE etc)
There's no way it's going to be pro-war.
It might be a question of ... If you show the war for
what it is, can it be apolitical? Try this:
