I am really digging on the new FX show – Over There. There is something unsettling however, about sitting in my recliner and watching a television show about events that are happening on the other side of the globe.
The good thing is that it took a few episodes for me to figure out how the producers would slant the show. I really couldn’t tell if it was going to be pro-Iraq war or anti. They have gradually eased into their point of view and it is becoming more and more pro war with each installment.
It is good drama, it is good acting, it is good direction, heck – its just good television. Will I take my cues from the show on how I view our involvement in the Middle East? Nope. Will I still watch the show and enjoy it as the entertainment that is is? You bet.
