Ultimate Force/Farce (merged discussions)

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by error_unknown, Jul 25, 2003.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does this bloke grip anybody elses sh*t as much as he grips mine?

    In the same way that you can't tear your eyes away from a car crash, i've found myself watching bits of the astonishingly bad Ultimate Force series.

    It's all horrific, right from the opening music to the A-Team plotlines. But worse, far worse, than anything else, is that Ross Kemp is a FAT ba*tard.

    The bloke should be on Remedial PT, not Operations. He's got the classic pub landlord look "i'm a big feller me, but as soon as your not looking at me, i'm going to breathe out, and let 40lbs of piss-tank gut hang over my belt"

    Why did they hire the Pledge-headed tubster? Were Lewis Collins/Sean Bean/Robson Green/Chin-jut Jerome/ all too busy?

    I know it's currently being covered in the Int Cell, but please can we have some NAAFI bar standard slagging of this plastic-cockney blimp?
     
  2. c**kney = resident of London, who will attempt to sell you a watch, whilst doing the Lambeth walk and shagging your sister.
     
  3. Calm down CC - Ross Kemp is an ACTOR, he is not really in the SAS, there is no red tp - honest.

    If he grips your sh*t that much, don't watch him, switch on PC and browse through ARRSE for an hour.
     
  4. I like Ross Kemp in Ultimate Farce....mmmm those thick thighs :p :wink:
     
  5. the thing i dont get very minor point and prob makes me look even sadder but they had 60lbs per man including weapons and ammo and im guessing uniform and boots cos they packed in civvies so how the hell could they have bergans that were bursting at the seams?????????
     
  6. Ex-dvr :roll:

    Thank you for pointing out that it is not real life and that Ross Kemp is an ACTOR. It was really troubling me that he'd managed to sail through the special forces rank structure so quickly, after only leaving the Queen Vic four years ago. I assumed that he'd had to change his name from Grant to Henno in an SF identity swap procedure.

    Cheers
     
  7. Don't forget that he had been in the paras "wiv is bruvva" before. And since most paras think they are special forces it was probably just a process of persuading the DSF that running the Queen vic for a couple of years was as good as selection and continuation.

    And didn't he shoot someone (I'm fishing here as I don't watch Enders) which would explain why he needed to get somewhere where the Bill couldn't track him down.
     
  8. Oh and when I say the Bill I don't mean Reg Hollis and his lot because they are all in Sun Hill of course.
     
  9. Be a good programme that....The Bill combined with Eastenders! That fat b*stard Mo from the square would nevr be out the cells as she's a thievin' cow. Kat would get lifted for soliciting. She looks like a 10 dollar whore (great!) . Could you imagine if they let squaddies write the scripts for programmes like that? Ace! :twisted:
     
  10. CC - I didn't think you would bite, maybe when he left EE he joined the Foreign Legion and done the name change through them 8O and is only on attachment to red tp :!:
     
  11. I've said it on the Ultimate Farce thread, Kemps acting is wooden. It’s as if he's reading his lines from a que card. It was the same in Eastbenders, and in fact, both characters seem the same. Same looks, same accent, same acting. Kemp should have grown a tash or worn a wig for Ultimate Farce. And that last scene. He and the troopy storm building, kills a few terrorists, then he kills the troopy. No sweat, no heavy breathing, no adrenalin pumping. He just causally picks up a coke bottle and drinks. There is a name for people like his character – psychopath. But I thought the SAS has no psychopaths in the ranks. How come the military advisers agreed that the scene was worthy of being shown?
     
  12. Now there's a thought. They ought to do more programmes like that. Trouble is, the bloke who plays CO 22 SAS was also busy on BBC2 on Tuesdays being some nurse's dad in Holby City, where he got taken out with a euthanasia jab of morphine. But there has to be scope for savings measures somewhere here - how about useing the same bird to be in MI5 on Ultimate Farce AND on Spooks? Might allow the BBC to cut the TV licence down by a few quid.
     
  13. the bloke who is the CO used to be something high up in Soldier Soldier as well...seems he is an imaginary unit career soldier..... :roll:
     
  14. Colonel Fortune of the Kings Fus, no less. Plus another old Soldier Soldier CO was in it as an MOD man and then last week's south African terrorist was the KOF's Major Voce.
     
  15. FS - Is that a complete set of Soldier Soldier vids I see in the collection?
