Carrier

PBS aired a 10-part series this week called Carrier. It was about life aboard the USS Nimitz.

The series was fantastic. It was the best thing I've seen on TV in a long time. The final episode, "Full Circle", was incredible. It was full of touching scenes as the crew members rejoin their families after deployment.

I loved the scenes where they are pulling into ports, and the crew is manning the rails (in formation around the perimeter of the deck). What an awesome sight that must be...

If you missed it, you might be able to catch re-broadcasts over the next few days. The entire series is also available on-line (streaming video) and via DVD. Check it out!

Jenn and I watched every episode. I agree with you. It was the best thing I have seen on TV in a long time!
