At least it's not the whole show. It was the more enjoyable part... 
with out all the piss'n, and moaning, and whining like a little 
girl's school all the way from the Dept. Heads to the scullery crew. 
I expect the scullery hands to be unhappy but a senior airplane 
driver, a 20 years plus Chief, a 1st class in a good job as far as 
carrier jobs go, and  the female type that got pregnant and seemed to 
wonder "How the Hell did that happen?". Obviously she was not given 
access to "How to not to get knocked up while cruising with the 
Seventh Fleet" by the Training Dept. Ya just can't trust those 
TD's... (Training Devicemen... the people that provide all the 
training material and devices for the fleet). A good start is when 
that 2nd Class Boats says "Hey... I got some thing to show you in the 
forward chain locker..." STAY OUT'TA THAT LOCKER!

I watched two episodes and couldn't hack the bed wetting any more.

I remember when I was a young Squid (Marine talk for sailor) and 
those old S.O.B.'s would come around and say "This sxxt never 
happened in MY Navy!!!  I have no doubt how I'd be classified 
today.... because.... "This sxxt never happened in MY Navy!!!!" :-!
