I am so glad it’s Friday! What a long and craptastic week I have had. Unfortunately, I have a tendency of procrastination when it comes to getting to the doctor for myself… Lesson learned this time, because that cold and upset stomach I was battling was actually double pneumonia and a kidney infection. I hate being sick, because it messes with my usual schedule, but thankfully, I am on the mend and getting back into routine. While I spend my Friday night resting, let’s see what we all should be watching.
I have been waiting for Enlisted to premiere on FOX since I first heard about the pilot last year, so I am estatic that it’s finally here. What could be wrong with a comedy that has Geoff Stults (The Finder, October Road), Chris Lowell (Veronica Mars), and Parker Young (Suburgatory) playing brothers? Nothing, my friends. Absolutely nothing!
This show is a single-camera comedy that follows the three brothers on a small Florida Army post and the mixture of people that they come in contact with. Pete (Stults) is the older brother that made a mistake overseas and got sent back to Fort McGee; Derrick (Lowell) is the sarcastic troublemaker who doesn’t really care about being a soldier; and then there’s Randy (Young), who loves being a soldier but isn’t always successful at it. The boys all serve in the Rear Detachment (Rear D) unit, made up of the soldiers left behind when everyone else is deployed. They help with the upkeep of the base, but their main job is to help the families of the deployed soldiers. It doesn’t sound super exciting or important, but it will end up bringing these brothers back together again after years of being distant.
On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” between Sergeant Pete Hill’s renegade nature and the stress of constant bombing in Afghanistan, where he led over a hundred raids, he punches out an arrogant officer and is sent Stateside. Pete was on a path for a huge military career until that one mistake. He’s assigned to the low-maintenance Florida base, where very few soldiers have seen battle. It’s also where his two brothers, Derrick and Randy, are stationed.
To see how these brothers work it out tune into FOX at 9:30/8:30c
I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, Bones, Blue Bloods, Grimm and Dracula.
