BLUESTONE 42 SERIES 3 SPOILERS
The dialogue is glib and smart-ass and unrealistic in the same way that MASH scripts could be; but it’s just not funny. You kind of had to be there. All times are GMT I watched an episode a while ago and found it good enough, I just happened to find it at the tail end of a series where an MP Member of Parliament, not Military Police comes to visit. The latest episode had several laugh out loud moments which is very rare with TV comedy’s today. I do hope there will be more.
They get in a variety of situations; some deadly others involving larking around back at base. The dialogue is glib and smart-ass and unrealistic in the same way that MASH scripts could be; but it’s just not funny. And tower lock is definitely my favourite all grown up since Harry potter! Having read the positive reviews for this series, most peoples’ take on it seems to be that it accurately captures the gallows humour of an armed forces unit. If you are the type of person who likes women , explosives, guns and people shooting at the Taliban , you will love this and it even has the added plus of being amusing and very enjoyable to watch. Watch this and enjoy. The casting ensures sufficient eye candy for both sexes, the South African locations are passable as Afghanistan.
I’ll watch the first episode now and come back with an opinion. The added sexual tension albeit one sided helps to make this a very enjoyable series. I was expecting some sort of reason that made sense, because brain-dead stupid people stopped being funny to spoielrs years and years ago.
The sharply observed writing careers recklessly across the full range of comedy styles while a solid cast of identifiable characters bicker and connive their way through a lethal tour in some miserable outpost.
The comedy realistically highlights the spirit of the armed forces. Simon’s trying to get his book published. Frankie-barrettxx 27 March A tin is funnier than a bag. TV Shows I’ve enjoyed over the years. The casting ensures sufficient eye candy for both sexes, the South African locations are passable as Afghanistan.
Mary has been sent some cashews by her slightly useless dad – and she can’t eat them so gives them spiilers Nick. Was this review helpful? And tower lock is definitely my favourite all grown up since Harry potter! Supported by colonel Carter and Faruq. Two episodes in, and the show gets better and better.
That alone wouldn’t make it a good show but once you have that feel right you can really let rip with the humour. It’s rudenon-politically correct and funny as frig. It probably helps if you have served in the Armed Forces but I don’t doubt civilians will enjoy it too.
This makes the whole project feel a bit cynical, like it’s cashing in parasitically, looking for laughs in the wrong places and milking an unfunny scenario for financial gain. Guys like giant, fighting robots that shoot lazerz out their eyes while girls like pretty jewelry that sparkle in the moonlight after wpoilers a romantic interlude with a charming gentleman.
The comic timing is very good, kit and locations well up to the mark although I wouldn’t recommend firing a shoulder launched anti tank rocket standing in front of a hard surface like an armoured vehicle, the back blast is liable to do naughty things to your body. Everything is perfect from the main theme tune, location, gear and equipment – 422 in the know helped put this show together. So Simon needs a ‘hook’ and a ‘look’ – i. However he’s not really got much choice, given that the only female he interacts on a regular basis now is Bird and you can guess how well that will go.
It works as a line at the time, but even better, it comes back to haunt him later and really cramps his style with Astrid.

While Mac and Rocket are highly entertaining, I don’t think they’re strong enough to hold the show together, although Bird seriea their new ATO might make for some friction.
There will be some of you who haven’t been in the forces in combat and might find the humour a bit strange, that it is but very accurate. I’m from the Westcountry, so I have no problems poking fun at our Scottish neighbours and I’m more than happy to take friendly jibes about the cider swilling inbred yokels we get around dee’s ‘ere parts.
It could just be Simon bluesrone nosing with his new OC, although now that he’s free and single They’re ordinary men and women in extraordinary circumstances doing what it takes to get by. I have been addicted to it ever since and my wife who isn’t from a military background loves it as well. Bets on a 4th season?
See you in about 28 minutes. Which, in a sitcom, is the best kind of joke. I stumbled across this early in series 1 while late-night channel hopping and rapidly grew to love it, other members of the family have accumulated along the way and it’s now early series 3 become required viewing.
Sitcom Geek: A Hot Prop of Nuts – Bluestone 42 Episode 3
Mm, the eternal conundrum. This is just my opinion any difficulties arising from implementing my ideas are your own problem.
And so he goes about trying to achieve them. The rest of the team is comprised of a couple of Scots who mock just about everything, a female signals operator, a corporal who is forever the butt of others jokes and another corporal who is incredible keen and precise in all he does.
Episode 3 doesn’t have as many of these quotable lines and I’m not sure why. Sorry Yanks, you have the worst record for “friendly fire” on the planet. Given that Rocket’s Scottish, possibly all of the above. They get in a variety of situations; some deadly others involving larking around back sppilers base.

The cashews are there, Astrid wants to know where the nuts are from and Nick talks about the padre and suddenly he realises that he needs to apply the brakes.
It might be because of the nature of the stories and everything is related to everything else.
