I really liked the show and was bummed they didn't continue it. I heard it caught some flack for its portrayal of the people serving and that was part of the reason for it being canceled (as well as declining ratings).

What did you think of the show and of how it portrayed soldiers?

Not bad, occasionally pretty good. However, even when watching it, something just didn't feel right considering there are still a lot of people over there getting killed.

Why are you blaming the youth?

I don't blame them, but they are a symptom.

I blame it on 400 years of Puritan influence.

Wouldn't the problem be with the fathers and mothers and middle-aged TV network executives of today? I mean, I don't think it's the kids who made the call to pull the plug on the show.
