Heroes. What show featuring those who protect your country (fiction or non-fiction) is your favorite?
Well, I can’t say that I can think of very many. Let’s consider non-fiction first. Surely there are countless documentaries about any war that one could name, particularly World War II. However, I’d be hard pressed to name any of these documentaries. This is not to discount the sacrifices of the brave men and women who have volunteered to protect my country, of course. It is more an indictment against the producers of not entirely memorable documentaries.
On the fictional front, there are certainly such shows as 24 and The West Wing, but I can’t say that I’ve really watched those. I’ve also seen a few episodes of Cops but can’t really call that a favorite. Although the X-Files episode that pretended to be an episode of Cops was quite entertaining. For that matter, I suppose I could nominate X-Files for Favorite Show Featuring Those Who Protect Your Country, and I suppose I wouldn’t get much argument.
There is a show that immediately comes to mind on the topic of Those Who Protect Your Country, and I’m sure all of you will have no trouble guessing what it could be.
I know, I know. I’m such a child of the Eighties.
