I refer you to.........
........the film "Starship Troopers" vs RAH's book. The foolishness isn't confined to movies.
The new 8 part TV series of Das Boot starts on British TV next Wednesday (6th February) on Sky Atlantic, with the showing of the first two episodes.
Each episode is about 1 hour 10 mins long, with whatever amount of Ads Sky Atlantic choose to show.
The series is described IN THE LISTING MAGAZINE as both a "sequel" and a "re- Boot " (which I assume is a feeble pun). It is set in the Autumn of 1942.
UNFORTUNATELY, a feature on the series explains just how dire the series is likely to be ;
"... the eight hour series also widens the class of characters ... There are Gestapo officers, French Resistance fighters, British SOE agents and rogue Americans." ! ! !
The (?) rogue American has been arrested in Germany and the U-Boat is sailing to a mid-Atlantic prisoner exchange (even more exclamation marks !)
Also (!) the senior Gestapo officer is in love with a woman French interpreter - who (just to justify some more exclamation marks !) is in a relationship with a female American guerrilla (or would gorilla be more realistic ?)
I think that the preview seems to describe a comedy.
