What Happened To My Show?
31 January 2008 | by belles-chaussettesSee all my reviews

A terrific series is turned into garbage by propaganda writers. It reminds me of the 70s when every returning vet from Viet Nam was portrayed as a crazed loon at the top of a water tower with a rifle.

The supposed torture of an Iraqi story could have been written by John Kerry & company of non-vets. For years they had advertised its episodes as being "ripped from the headlines." The only headlines this story was ripped from was the conspiracy nut newspapers that claim the US blew up the twin towers. When John Munch is the voice of reason we have gone to a very strange place indeed.

Can we please return to compelling stories?
