Yes, I believe it has a solid chance of being one of the best new shows for fall.

I will give the show a second look. Nice to see Canadian flags in a US show too !!

I grant that this is supposed to be set back in 2006...but even then, there were so many glaring errors in the backdrop that I had a hard time getting into the storyline.

And yeah, they need to have somebody do a drive by of the ever-flowerful Poo Pond before I believe they're at KAF!

If the director and producer are confused about what is accurate and what is not I strongly urge them to hire CPT Dale Dye (USMC Retired) who has made his post military life assisting those in the film industry who don't accurately know.

Right off the top, U.S. made UH-60 Black Hawk Helicopters do not sound like Vietnam era UH-1 Huey's. C'mon get the sound tracks correct at least!

Bad idea to have show at this time. Better after wars end. To many people in cast. No lead.

I THINK this might be a good show BUT it was so hard to hear the words spoken for all the LOUD MUSIC AND BACKGROUND DRAMA. Maybe they need to watch MASH TV series and see how they made a good show and we could understand the speaking clearly. If it doesn't clear up real soon I'm moving on to something else I can hear clearly.

For the people that are saying it's crap and the setting is incorrect. Remember this takes place back in 06 where Canada was the leading country in KAF. Also role 3 was in a beat up plywood shack. I am a Canadian forces medic who worked at the role 3 hospital. Just watching the preview gave me goosebumps. ThE setting is accurate. I just wish they wouldn't concentrate so much on the doctors, but the front line medics that do all the grunt work getting the patients to KAF.

I was really hoping for something better. I have to agree that this show needs some serious technical advice. Also, why do these show feel the need to have 100 things occur in an episode. A good show like The Sopranos or The Wire spends most its time building the characters and not pushing action, which makes the action so much better.

I just happened upon Combat Hospital by accident and I love it! This is my new favorite show. I enjoyed the exciting, high energy script and I thought the actors did a great job. I enjoyed the unpredictable story line. Maybe it is not technically close to an actual "combat hospital" situation but it's close to junk that happens in real life.(i.e. getting dressed down for by your boss for being a hero) Can't wait til next week. Please keep this one ABC!

As a SGT who just came from KAF (Kandahar Air Field) less than 2 weeks ago I can say this show is CRAP. Role 3 is a brick and mortar with glass doors and tile floors. It is very much a the NICEST building on all of KAF! Hands down! I even had a minor surgery there. The absolute cleanest place on post. And for a post with a lake of human waist (lovingly called the "poo pond") you really noticed clean.
