Enlisted is a new sitcom that takes place on a Florida military base where several army outcasts reside. When decorated Staff Sergeant Pete Hill (Geoff Stults) punches a superior officer while in Afghanistan, he is punished and sent to a reserve base with his brothers Derrick and Randy (Chris Lowell and Parker Young) and a band of misfits. Rounding out the main cast in the Sergeant of a competing unit, Jill Perez (Angelique Cabral), and the tern Command Sergeant Major of the base, Donald Cody (Keith David).
BOTTOM LINE: FOX really missed an opportunity with this show. With it's sweetly silly feel and a funny ensemble filled with wacky characters, it would have been a great partner for Brooklyn Nine-Nine (compared to Dads). FOX could have at least given it a preview after an NFL game because this deserved a wider audience than it got in its DOA timeslot. I don't know how future episodes came out but the pilot was very promising and it's too bad more people aren't going to discover this little hidden gem when it's buried on a Friday night.
