"Our Girl"

Did anybody else watch the BBC drama last evening "Our Girl" The format has been used before many times; Richard Gere "An Officer and a Gentleman" Goldie Hawn "Private Benjamin" featuring reluctant army recruits first weeks of basic training, and probably many more.
Only watched it because we couldn't find anything else worth watching. But it was worth it, thought it was excellent.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I enjoyed what I saw of it....about the last 15 minutes or so.
I thought the field training was active duty until a 'dead' soldier got up.

Re: "Our Girl"

I thought it was very good and very realistic.
A couple of years ago one of my nephews went through the same experience so seeing things like the quarters and passing out parade brought back proud memories.

I watched it, I thought it was really brilliant.
If you have 90 minutes spare it's well worth catching it on the I player.
