| | There are/have been some good, solid guys on the show (by that I mean real deals) but the show itself isn't realistic at all, nor is it intended to be. The main character is a very close friend of mine and he enjoys it, he sees it as a live action video game, doesn't have to be or need to be realistic. It's just playing Modern Warfare Capture the Flag in real life. No more, no less.
And you are right 13th, it's very scripted and alot of times they stop and do different takes so get the right scene. It's just for entertainment, not for anyone to take any lessons away from. It's all set up and preplanned.
I've watched it because my bro is in it and it's fun to watch as long as you know it's just made to entertain. All in all I like it, probably moreso because my friend is in it but also because it gives me a reason to call and bust his balls.
Oh and I just have to say, it's not near as gay as "Combat Missions" was.
Ut ceteri vivant.
