A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Deployed personnel are living on remote military bases with their own social rules. Political themes, like soldiers being dismissed and deported, are often addressed.
Positive Role Models
The deployed miltary personnel are courageous for serving America while living away from home in a difficult environment. Some medics break the rules in order to do what they believe is right, while others do it for self-serving reasons. Many behave in ways that they wouldn't engage in while civilians.
Violence & Scariness
It's set in war-torn Afghanistan; there are constant fears of attack and acts of violence are frequent. People stationed at the base engage in fighting matches for sport. Lots of bloody injuries are shown, and people die. There is also lots of gunfire and other violent moments.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that 68 Whiskey is a mature series about a group of military medical personnel stationed in Afghanistan. It features the expected bloody, and sometimes fatal, injuries stemming from explosions, shootings, and physical fights (some of which is also shown). Cursing (including the "F" word) is constant, illicit sexual relationships are a major theme, and simulated sexual activities are shown. There's also some drinking, drunken behavior, and pot smoking.
Is It Any Good?
This uneven fictional series highlights stories about what life can be like for military personnel deployed to remote bases around the world. Plots include illicit business deals with locals, a potential murder, and more politicized tales, including the dismissal and deportation of U.S. soldiers. Adding to this are lots of sexual hookups, goofy moments, and some outrageous, and often dangerous, schemes designed to make the show more fun. But outside of a few entertaining scenes, these narratives feel unbalanced, and never seem to come together enough. As a result, 68 Whiskey leaves you feeling like it is trying too hard, and yet just isn't meeting its full potential.
Did we miss something on diversity?
