Storyline

From Executive Producer Ron Howard, 68 Whiskey is Paramount Network's newest one-hour, original scripted series. The show follows a multicultural band of Army medics stationed in Afghanistan on a base nicknamed "The Orphanage," blending intense drama with irreverent humor. Together, the medics navigate a dangerous and sometimes absurd world, relying on comradery, various vices, and occasionally, a profound sense of purpose, to carry them through.

Honest Civilian Review
16 January 2020 | by stillafoolSee all my reviews

I'm a teacher. Not long ago, I watched the movie Fist Fight. It was full of inaccuracies regarding education, but you know what...it was still pretty funny. M*A*S*H came out roughly 20 years after the Korean Conflict. I'm sure that plenty of veterans sat and watched that show and cursed how unreal it was. Americans loved it. Here we are sitting on 17 years in Afghanistan and we haven't once had anything to watch that even attempted to capture any range of emotions surrounding our involvement there. 68 Whiskey at least makes an effort...and even succeeded to a certain degree in the first episode. I laughed audibly at a few parts and was interested in the story. If it's inaccurate...I don't really care. I'm not a soldier. I'm a viewer.

I spent a year in Kandahar and, while I wasn't involved in combat, I was deeply connected with Afghan people at the time. I enjoyed that they presented them as educated and not all backwards jihadis worthy of only target practice. The even spoke Pashto correctly from the little I remember.

While there may be a great deal that is not realistic about the theater of war involved in the production of this, I really don't think most Americans care. We need a show that can take the piss a little about our unjust involvement in the region and this show looks promising for that if nothing else.
