» "Over There" met with some hostility from A Healthy Alternative to Work
Like Blackfive, I missed the premiere of FX's new show "Over There" last night. However, he's opened the comments section of the post up to readers who had seen it and want to comment on the program, and comment they have. [Read More]

» Over where? from CDR Salamander
Yep, I saw it. Last night I forced myself, against my better judgement, to watch the new FX show "Over There." I'm not an Army guy so I won't comment on the ground details, but this show just didn't make it. Can't we find some non-Boomers to make ... [Read More]

» Over There from Eric's Grumbles Before The Grave
"Over There" debuted, a TV "drama" about Iraq. As has become my norm for twenty years now, I basically ignored yet another piece of what I deemed to be Hollywood trash that would not reflect any sort of military reality... [Read More]

» Live-Blogging "Over There" from Reasoned Audacity: Politics in Real Life
"Over There" tonight at 10 EST. The new television series about the Iraq war. I'm skeptical. So I've decided to live-blog it. If you're watching, too, send comments. *** 2201 Sex in the kitchen for starters? Oooh. That's subtle.... [Read More]

» Don't Go "Over There" from The Noonz Wire
No, I didn't watch Over There last night. I instead opted for a little Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow. Based on the comment thread for Blackfive's Over There post, it sounds like that was the right home entertainment decision. The derision and critici... [Read More]

Unless you are a hopeless, Vietnam-fixated hyper-Lefty, there doesn't seem to be much of a reason to watch Steven Bochco's new war series on FX, Over There. Supposedly a realistic look at the current war in Iraq from the "men-in-the-field" point of vie... [Read More]

» "Over There" Overhyped from Just Some Poor Schmuck
The reviews of Stephen Boccho's Iraq war series "Over There" are in and it is universally panned. Not by TV critics, or war critics, but by those who are supposedly being portrayed. The comments in Blackfive's posting BLACKFIVE: Over There... [Read More]

  • Uber Pig
    AuthorLogo-pig.jpg
    Uber Pig was an Infantryman from late 1991 until early 1996, serving with Second Ranger Battalion, I Corps, and then 25th Infantry Division. At the time, the Army discriminated against enlisted soldiers who wanted use the "Green to Gold" program to become officers, so he left to attend Stanford University. There, he became expert in detecting, avoiding, and surviving L-shaped ambushes, before dropping out to be as entrepreneurial as he could be. He is now the founder of a software startup serving the insurance and construction industries, and splits time between Lake Tahoe, Boonville, and San Francisco, CA.

    Uber Pig writes for Blackfive a) because he's the proud brother of an enlisted Civil Affairs Reservist who currently serves in Iraq, b) because he looks unkindly on people who make it harder for the military in general, and for his brother in particular, to succeed at their missions and come home in victory, and c) because the Blackfive readers and commenters help keep him sane.
