1. Welcome to Kandahar TV-14 CC

It's 2006: Major Rebecca Gordon, a highly trained trauma surgeon, and Captain Bobby Trang, a brand-new doctor, report for duty at the NATO Role 3 Multinational Medical Unit at Kandahar Airfield, the only advanced surgical care hospital in Southern Afghanistan. Perched at the edge of the airfield, built out of plywood and canvas held together with duct tape, the temporary building that houses the Role 3 shakes every time a plane takes off. The hospital's commander, Colonel Xavier Marks, tells the newcomers to expect an experience unlike any they've had before. Rebecca thinks she can handle anything, while Bobby's acutely conscious of his inexperience. They both get off to a rocky start: it's humbling for both of them as Colonel Marks points out Rebecca's mistakes and tries to build Bobby's confidence. But over the next 48 hours, as they deal with rocket attacks, falling shrapnel and wave after wave of wounded U.S. Marines, Canadian soldiers, Afghan civilians and even a Taliban prisoner-they manage to rise to the challenge, even as they grow more and more exhausted. Welcome to Kandahar.

I thought the series was very interesting and well acted. Since they used allot of footage my son took during his 3 tours there I guess I'm a little biased. Wish it hadn't ended but I suppose they were lucky to get the opportunity to make it. At least it survived a full season except in the States where they never showed the last episode.

I was disappointed that there was only one season - this is a well produced program and one that I will want to watch more than once. The characters were real and they brought to life the war in which our men are involved. It is colorful in that the hospital is staffed with doctors and personel of different nationalities. It gives one a glimpse of what it would be like to be in Afghanistan: the dangers, the bravery, camaraderie, the dedication, as well as some fun.

Excellent show. Way better than MASH, or China Beach. More believable characters. Too bad it was cancelled after one season because the public prefers to have its soldiers bleed and suffer in silence; away from the public's eye. Go get'em boys! Just don't no one get hurt because we are too squeamish to keep our resolve in case someone dies; after all government is all about the handouts, not individual freedom - right? We need another draft to give everyone some skin in the game; including democrats.

Very realistic. Good plots. Too bad they stopped with season 1.I highly recommend it. A little graphic in some places
