All caught up on your favorite shows after being stuck at home and wondering what to watch next? Here are five military shows to watch this summer!
Army Wives is one of those shows you watch when you want even more melodrama—it even includes a touch of fantasy when the spouses on the show are together for six years at a base (we all know that never happens…) Full of tears, drama, and moments that make you gasp, this is a fun show to break out the popcorn and enjoy with your fellow milspouses. You can find Army Wives on Netflix and ABC.com.
M*A*S*H is here for the laughs and nostalgia. The series follows the struggles and joys of a small band of Army members during the Vietnam War. Sheaf.com explained it best, “It’s not a comedy about war. It’s a comedy about people who have to laugh in the face of war in order to get through the day.” It might be over forty years old, but the military bureaucracy and camaraderie still resonate today. Rewatch this classic on The History Channel.
The Last Ship
If you watched all the movies and series related to pandemics last year, you might have missed this show. This six-season series follows the fictional Navy ship USS Nathan James. The crew realizes they are the only people on Earth unaffected by a pandemic that wiped out 80% of the Earth’s population and has to figure out a cure to save what’s left of humanity. Watch this action-packed show on Hulu or Amazon Prime.
Band of Brothers
If you don’t have your sea legs yet, the mini-series Band of Brothers might be the show for you. This dramatized true story series will take you through the “Easy Company” unit’s experience of World War II. Starting with jump training in Georgia, this series doesn’t shy away from the harshness of their lives while overseas. Bring the tissues for the brotherhood on screen and the grief of war. Watch this show on Amazon Prime.
Navy SEALs: BUDS Class 234
