Mail Call!



I just wanted to give some props to one of the best darn shows on TV. I personally can't think of a better premise for a show than R Lee Ermey talking about weapons.

Hoo-Rah!

One of my favorite shows on TV: you can almost see the glee in his eyes when he was firing off a jeep mounted Browning 30 cal

Just want to throw in "Conquest" as being an excellent companion show.

Almost? Anytime Gunny gets ANY aimable weapon in his hands he lights up like a kid. My fave is when he fired off the tripod mounted Ma Duce in camp. Death to watermelons! Semper Fi!

I'm a huge fan of the show (easily one of the FUNNIEST and, gulp, educational shows on TV) and asked R. Lee about it in my recent interview.

I just started watching this show a few weeks ago after setting the TiVo and I love it!

Great vehicle for the Gunny to do what he loves best.

Wow, that interview was a fun read:
- I've never bothered watching the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but will definitely check out the remake to see what kind of pervert he'll make
- Glad to hear they're going to make another 26 episodes of Mail Call. Damn, that made my day

Thought it's worth noting here that I'm giving away five of the new Mail Call: Best of Season One DVDs (seven episodes plus promos) ...
