"The Hurt Locker" to Become a Reality Show

Posted: August 25th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Hurt Locker" to Become a Reality ShowSubmit Comment
G4 is putting together a reality show, called "Bomb Patrol: Afghanistan," that follows a bomb-disposal squad in Afghanistan and is described as a real-life version of the Oscar-winning film "The Hurt Locker." The channel has already ordered ten one-hour episodes.

The show will take viewers behind the scenes of a US Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit, starting with training sessions in the States and then during its deployment for several months in Afghanistan.

"There is simply no way to comprehend the incredible amount of pressure and split-second decision-making these individuals must undertake in the worst possible physical conditions without riding along with them as our cameras will do," G4 president Neal Tiles said. "This is a rare opportunity to showcase the work of the courageous men and women on the front lines and share with our viewers all the real-life drama, teamwork, danger and triumph that goes along with this specialized job."

Tiles added that the military will not have creative control over the series, which will premiere in the spring.

Justin Biener should take part in this. Sure it will draw a big and wide audience. It will serve for his(?) biopic too.

How about not exploiting these men and women in the Armed Forces, they don't make this show. Bring the Military home (as Bin Laden is living la vida loca in Saudi Arabia anyway) to rebuild New Orleans...

And WE ALL PARTY LIKE IT'S 1999!!!!!

god damn it g4 stop with this sh*tty idea from an over rated movie. why don't you just donate the production costs to the soldiers' families and play re-runs of starcade.

so the line up will change often huh ... i kid but really with our EOD those guy rotated out about every 3 months so they didnt get complacent with the IEDs in our AO , but there biggest problem was snipers overwatching the hit spot or dirty IA trying to kill our EOD in a blaze of glory .... 12 gauge mossberg sorted them out real f*ckin quick

Thats Horsesh*t, Military will be able to pull the plug any second. I'll be surprised if this makes the light of day unless they are clever and turn it into a recruiting video.

@Ranger - Actually it is currently believed Bin Laden is in a compound in Iran guarded by their revelutionary guard or durka durka mohammed jihad or whatever the f*ck they call themselves. But u didn't hear it from me.

they can't just leave it as an oscar-winning movie. leave it at that!

@jeff - possible as well. Do they say Iran is letting Bin Laden release video tapes now and again to keep the sh*t storm raging? Makes sense. I know he's not in Afghanistan!

I value every single person in (or ever in) the Military. I know how dangerous their work is. I would NEVER put them in harms way unnecessarily (when need... yes, of course) to serve the Bush family with Cheney profiting for all of them to rebuild Iraq via Haliburton, when it was tax-payer $'s used to smash the country.

To no one's amazement:

Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

Quashing 'terrorism' (in the likes of Afghanistan) will never succeed.

Well... this list is almost endless.
