American Fighter Pilot

Just noticed this forum (I hangout in the underground and rarely venture elsewhere...), so it seemed appropriate.

Of course, for those who don't know AFP, it's a "reality" show which traces three pilots through the F-15 training program at Tyndall AFB.

Now, it's probably inappropriate for this forum (since it's not "now showing" anymore), but since it was one of the more promising shows this season, which is now on haitus. Hopefully, it'll resume showing sometime in June.

Question is, anyone else liked it as much as I did? Bit dramatized here and there, few cheezy parts, but definitely different, I felt.

And I'll plug a page on AFP: http://worf.dyndns.org/AFP/ .

The editing on the first episode almost drove me mad. Or maybe it was the voiceovers (or maybe it was the voiceovers).

Being interested in "behind the scenes" stuff for the military I was eagerly awaiting it. When we finally get to the flying portion of the show they stick it on hiatus. Zap2it.com says "The six remaining episodes of "AFP" will likely air sometime this summer". The SP is still there should it ever return.

The constant repeating of a persons, comment, then replayed with a voice over *with* subtitles drove me nuts. Did we really need *all* of that to know what the person said?

I think my SP is still active for this. This is the first time I heard they will bring it back.

Yeah, the voice overs and hypnosis-inducing flashing almost drove me mad.

Nice show, lousy timeslot (which is why we have TiVos ). And yes, I'm told it is coming back - initial reports were that it was to show just after May sweeps were over (late May - early June), hence the notes on the site which are rapidly updated. However, I am reasonably confident that it is going to show in the summer (perhaps late June...) based on the information I have (from the sheer volume of comments on the CBS site, as well as a large petition that was held a while back).

And yes, I upgraded my TiVo for this show! :P
