By Mr. Bey VINE VOICE on December 14, 2005

I was very excited for the premier of Over There. I love how FX really takes risks with their programs and Rescue Me, The Shield, and Nip/Tuck are three of television's finest shows. I knew Over There was going to raise a few eyebrows and it dealt with a very sensitive topic but the show was very respectful of the troops in Iraq.

Over There was the first show to depict the U.S. in a current war. That was enough to get the conservatives on their case but if you watch the show you will get a feeling of how hard it is to be "over there". The cast were very believable characters and the writing was very good. Obviously the show couldn't really be in Iraq but the set looked a lot like Iraq. Over There dealt with humanizing topics and it was a treat to watch.

Here's why I don't think Over There was right for television. Its ratings were not that bad for a rookie cable show but FX was under a lot of fire so they crossed it off their list of problems. Despite critical praise I don't think enough people were ready to handle the war fictionalized but it's a shame. I'm glad that we can relive the thirteen adventures through this DVD and it is a steal for the price Amazon lists. If you missed it when it first aired, then this is a great way to see the entire series.

The short lived TV show "Over There" is the first TV show that actually takes place during the conflict overseas that it's dramatizing. Well written, directed and acted the show the show garnered too much controversy forcing Fox to abandon the show despite decent ratings. Produced by Steven Bochco ("L.A. Law", "Hill Street Blues", "Cop Rock", "NYPD Blue" among many others) the show manages to be more gritty and realistic than anything attempted on television before. While Bochco and his production crew were clearly influenced by gritty war dramas like "Black Hawk Down" but the show manages to establish its own style with the pilot episode (which was previously available solo on DVD).

"Over There" follows the misadventures of a group of GIs fighting the war in Iraq and at the same time also followed their families and the impact their absence had on them. It was a unique blend of the personal and the global that portrayed more than one aspect of the effects of war. Unfortunately the show faced political minefields that Fox couldn't dodge and the show was buried in the FX cable schedule. It's very unlikely this show will come back for a sophomore season. It's too bad because this terrific show put a unique human face on a war we've only become familiar with from rhetoric and sound bites on TV.

Grainy and all the better looking for it, the director of photography of the show went for a deliberately grainy look to emphasize and heighten the sense of reality of the show. There's a lot of the jittery hand held camera shots that were popular in Ridley Scott's "Black Hawk Down" that has come into vogue lately with a lot of movies (including Ridley's brother Tony Scott in his last two films).

I first heard of the show shortly after I returned home from Iraq, I don't have cable so my brother taped the season for me. I have to tell ya, this was very realistic for it being a t.v. show. I mean most movies or shows you see that try to recreate something like this, they don't do their homework. Someone at FX did...maybe too well. Yeah I have to disagree with some things; like how the soldiers spoke so formally with their suepiors, and the guys are a little more casual with the females in real life, but otherwise they did great. I happen to like the song, but it does get annoying that they play it so much. Also I found it to be suspenseful and compelling, the people at FX found some good writers, I mean look at "E-ring" Now with those charactors they are hard to believe because we know them from other movies and shows. It's nice to see some young fresh faces that act pretty well and are beleivable. Thumbs UP!

I just returned from a deployment to Afghanistan and was weary at watching a show portraying my brothers in arms. I read the reviews and was skeptical reading all the negative reviews. I watched this show for the first day off in two weeks and enjoyed from start to finish. Everyone who says that this show does not accurately depict the US military obviously is not in the military or holds a position in the military that does not routinely work with the field soldiers and marines. The characters were pretty much right on you can spend time with any group of freedom fighters and see multiple personalities similar to those depicted in this show, sometimes even worse. I am sorry but that is fact while we do our best in the military to present only the best we have to offer there are individuals who are not so perfect...not to mention this was aired on FX and not discovery or history channel. I would have to say it was a great show and did give every citizen who wanted a peek into military life "Over There" an 90% accurate portrayal what it was like and a 100% enjoyable show if this is the type shows you like.
