About the Series:

Obliterated is a high octane action-comedy that tells the story of an elite special forces team who thwarts a deadly threat to Las Vegas. After their celebratory party, filled with booze, drugs and sex, the team discovers that the bomb they deactivated was a fake. The now intoxicated team has to fight through their impairments, overcome their personal issues, find the real bomb, and save the world.

There is profanity in the trailer, so NSFW to play out loud.

This looks pretty fun. Looks like The Hangover meets Mission Impossible

The reviews on this are all over the place by critics. Some loved it and some absolutely hated it. I will check it out because I enjoy action comedy.

You are not kidding, the Variety review says the show is an unwatchable mess (a mash up of dick jokes and other crudeness), and Collider's review is headlined: A Filthy And Fun Action-Comedy With Surprising Heart." Lol!

I think this will have to be a show I judge for myself, and I will either roll with it and want to binge it asap, or might agree with some of the negative reviews and it becomes yet another Netflix show that I never get around to finishing.

My former co-worker texted me last night to remind me this was dropping. His brother is one of the EPs and writers of this series. Hayden Schlossberg

I would check this out to see C. Thomas Howell and Lori Petty.

They have been MIA for a long time.

Lori Petty was in Station 11 on HBO / MAX... she looks nothing like the Lori Petty I remembered from Point Break.

I couldn't even get through the trailer that plays when you go to the show's page. I'll probably still give episode 1 a chance this weekend though.

Holy shit! I just watched the 1st episode. This is hard R material. Lots of sex, nudity and even C. Thomas Howell's dick . It's very over the top. Shelley Hennig does have a great body. The scene where she bangs Nick Zano was pretty graphic.

This is material that you rarely see nowadays. Very crude. Some of you will probably think it's really stupid. It's like The Hangover meets Mission: Impossible. I'm in. Definitely leave your small kids in the other room.

Haggerty spending the entire next episode stoned with a hard on and then with that male stripper.

Ava: I can feel his dick in my belly button

And then Paul seeing that green demon What the fuck!

Are you here for Jeff’s Fuck Fest?

Haggerty still stoned and farting and shitting in his pants Easiest job ever for C. Thomas Howell. Angela lusting for that bride

Aside from the fart, dick, shitting and sex jokes. Episode 3 had some good action.

Paul crashing the chopper after seeing the green demon again. This is so wild. I can see why a lot of critics hate it. I’m now through 3. Will watch the rest this weekend.

Episode 5


Bad guys getting ready to torture Trunk’s “trunk”

Mary Mother of God! Hey don’t Objectify Him

Shit! I did not need to see a metal rod inserted inside Trunk’s pee hole. Holy shit.

and Haggerty is still asleep.


Internet Explorer 5 being used.


The Cobra Kai boys were obviously high as a kite when they wrote this.

This show is fun.
Sometimes juvenile and R-rated is just what the doctor ordered.

Shelley Hennig is a smoke show .... this felt like the hard R version of Leverage. Meaning it has that same kind of humor, pace and action.

I'm now through 6 episodes. Will probably finish it up later.

Winters: "I have to take off this bra, it's suffocating my breasts"

It is like The Hangover meets Leverage meets Mission Impossible. And yes, Shelley Hennig is a hottie. She reminds me a little of Nina Dobrev. I mostly remember her from an old CW show called The Secret Circle. But, I know she's mostly known from Teen Wolf.

Episode 7. The tech girl Maya. Holy crap she has a rocking body. That fantasy sex scene

I like that they’ve actually shot a lot of this in Las Vegas instead of faking it in Canada or LA.

Paul hugging the demon after realizing his mistakes.

Finished it. I loved this. And I wouldn't mind a 2nd season with this team again.

Haggerty coming in to save the day on a camel. And also seeing the green demon Paul was seeing.

McKnight's look was definitely inspired by Nic Cage in Con Air and of course that also ended in Las Vegas

Only appropriate for it to end with Winters and McKnight banging in the shower.

I watched the first ep. I couldn’t care less about the sex and nudity, but I did think it was too much/raw. Less is more in my book. But, this show was straight up fun. The characters, at least in first ep, get along so beautifully. I just thought the interactions and brutal action scenes were enough to do the full series.
And, C. Thomas is just an amazing crazy genius.

C. Thomas Howell is fucking awesome in this.

Nick Zano was always a big dude in Legends of Tomorrow but he is fucking ripped in this.

This is stupid and violent and fun. Already in for the season. The fake blood CGI is awful when people get shot, though.

I had the following thoughts on this:

The humor was juvenile.
The situations the characters ended up in were outrageously contrived.
Haggerty coming to save the day at the end was just too predictable.

In short ... I loved it!

(Can't wait for a new season - where Ava and Maya have to stop a kidnapping/ransom plot at a naturist resort)

I'm finding it mostly enjoyable but it just seems way too long.

TV Shows have become like movies these days. They don't know when to shut the fuck up.
