I just flicked over the tv and watched JAG, the rather unbelievably crap US Navy law programme that passes for a "drama". The plot line was the trial of a US Navy pilot who managed to drop a 500lb bomb on a British exercise and kill 3 British soldiers. So far that plot is highly believable! But........ in the space of a 50 min programme I watched: A made-up TV pundit comment that the incident happen because the British were incompetant and the pilot was blameless and it was a scandal that he was being tried. A "British Officer" that was so outrageously stereotypical to be laughable A concerted effort to make the British look bad The inevitable acquital of the pilot when it was found that he had mistaken afreak phenomenon for AAA. Ok, so it's predictable that a hollywood programme would make the US pilot out to be innocent and the British out as incompetant amateurs, but what annoyed me was that as far as "Billy Joe Jim Bob" in the good 'ole mid-west (or wherever) will watch this and believe the crap that the programme suggests. Isn't it about time an episode of Red Caps strings a US soldier up for being a "yeee-hah" gollerin', gun slinging, British soldier murdering lunatic just to even the balance?
