This is a surprise.  A Netflix series on the 45th Division from Italy through the end of the war.
Both Italy and the invasion of south France haven't been covered well.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Thanks for posting this.

Has anyone here watched it?  Is it worth the time?

I watched it. Only 4 episodes about 45 min. each but I liked it. I thought it was well done and entertaining. Don't expect, 'Saving Private Ryan' but worth watching in my book.  O0

so far I'm not liking the animation overlay.
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.
