    Having spent 4 years in a Military Academy and 4 years as a US Marine, I tend to loose interest in shows of a military nature when you can't even get the actors to salute in a military manner. Please try to find someone that will teach your actors to handle a weapon better and to at least salute to make it more believable. I know it is just TV but when you put this kind of money out there I would think you would want it to be as real as possible. Expand

    Im a USN corpsman and I was really interested in the show. However the first five minutes that i started watching it I was furious and annoyed. 98% of this show is completely fake. I cant even stand to watch it because of how upset I get. Very disappointing especially to someone who works daily in the medical field. If this show continues I hope that they can do better research and get all of the details correct from how uniforms and hair are worn, color of the camel spiders, all the way down to the equipment they use in their "one operating room". I just feel like it's a slap in the face to people who are in the military to not get details correct. Expand

    Please change my rating score for my comments on 2 August to "0''. I'm new to this site and didn't realize I had to enter a rating score. ... Perhaps the cast could spend a week or two in Afghanistan. That's about all it would take for them to realize how far this show misses the mark. I find this show quite insulting to those of us who served with medical units in Iraq or Afghanistan.

    The "medical drama" is far too paltry to sustain the series without ramping up the relevance of the war context.

    As if afraid they will be accused of not taking things seriously enough, the creators walk through much of the pilot as if through a minefield, which is to say ver-ry slowly and ver-ry carefully. Not the best pacing considering the subject matter.

    Combat Hospital is as bland and generic as its title.
