12 Military-Themed TV Shows to Binge-Watch on Veterans Day
Some of the most beloved shows in TV history feature members of the military. You might remember Hawkeye Pierce and Radar O’Reilly from “M*A*S*H,” the breakout star of the “Andy Griffith Show,” Gomer Pyle, whose spinoff “Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.” ran for five years.

Mr. T shot to fame in the early ’80s by playing a veteran in “The A-Team as B.A. Baracus. Younger audiences may remember seeing pop-star Jesse McCartney in the final season of “Army Wives” — and fans of “The Office” can catch one of John Krasinski’s latest roles as the title character in “Jack Ryan.”

With Veteran’s Day taking place this Monday, here’s a list of military-themed TV shows to binge to in honor of our veterans.

“Hogan’s Heroes”

This sitcom aired from 1965 from 1971, and was set in a German Prisoner of War (Pow) camp in WWII. It followed Colonel Robert E.

A former Navy Seal, Boesch appeared on the first season of the reality show in 2000. He was 72 at the time and finished in third place.

Boesch formed an alliance with Richard Hatch, the winner of the first season, who tweeted, “Ours was an interesting bond, Dear Rudy! You and I helped open minds and undermine prejudices. While your time here has passed, you will remain loved and iconic, dear friend!”

Ours was an interesting bond, Dear Rudy! You and I helped open minds and undermine predjudces. While your time here has passed, you will remain loved and iconic, dear friend!

Known for his politically incorrect statements known as “Rudyisms” and gruff manner, he nevertheless became a fan favorite.

NCIS: Los Angeles Season 11 Episode 4 Review: Yellow Jack

  • TVfanatic
Since the first letter in the show's title stands for "Naval," it's only appropriate that this episode was filled with red herrings.

NCIS: Los Angeles Season 11 Episode 4 seemed like an effort to clean up a barely dangling storyline.

Callen and Sam found themselves back on board the USS Allegiance, under the guise of accompanying Ehsan Navid, last seen on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 5 Episode 14 and expected never to be seen again.

But no, Ehsan has repaid Callen and Sam's earlier kindness by becoming an NCIS agent. He was now appointed as the agent afloat for the Allegiance, replacing Brian Lee, killed on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 23.

Callen and Sam came along to help Ehsan with the transition to his new post.

Of course, nothing is ever that simple.

Harmon Rabb of Jag fame, the Allegiance's X-o, wasn't around because, well, that ship has sailed.

NCIS: Los Angeles Season 11 Episode 2 Review: Decoy

  • TVfanatic
Things were getting closer to back to normal.

The Osp team largely returned to the spotlight on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 11 Episode 2.

I say largely because, well, a little under half the team was still missing in action.

Still, that beats being the supporting players in an attempted Jag reboot on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 11 Episode 1.

So, progress of a sort.

Hetty was there in spirit only, haunting the place. Hopefully, this will be the exception, not the rule, unlike last season.

Eric was still off in San Francisco "consulting" for an unspecified time, but Nell was back, so that's a win.

Deeks got recalled to Lapd for some mandatory policy updates, which freed Kensi from having to make excuses for him.

17 Endgame 'Ships We Love With Endings We Hate

Don't you hate when your favorite couple has an unsatisfying ending?

Sometimes a couple gets together by the end of a show, but we expected more given the effort it took them to get there.

The CW Moves ‘Black Lightning’ Season 3 Premiere Up by 2 Weeks

  • The Wrap
The CW has moved up the return of “Black Lightning” by two weeks. Now starting on Monday, Oct. 7 at 9/8c, the “Black Lightning” Season 3 premiere will immediately follow the “All American” Season 2 premiere, which the network feels is a better pairing.

The move takes away one of two planned encores for the “Batwoman” series premiere and eliminates an encore of the “Nancy Drew” series premiere. Now that The CW has its own in-season streaming rights, those encores are seen as less vital for catch-up viewing.

Below is The CW’s revised fall premiere dates schedule, as revealed at the broadcast channel’s Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour day.

The Code Canceled After One Season on CBS

And that's a wrap.

The Code, which just concluded its freshman season on CBS, has been canceled.

The midseason hiatus should have been a clue, but darn it, we enjoyed that!

The Code was a unique take on the military and the law, offering fans of both genres something to dig into.

It followed some of the greatest military's brightest legal minds while they practiced law and also highlighted their personal lives.

The marines were trained to fight on all sides of the law -- as investigators, prosecutors and defense attorneys.

Dana Delaney took to Twitter this afternoon to share her farewell.

Thank you to all you wonderful people who watched @TheCodeCBS. Last night was our finale and sadly, no more. I’ll never make General. But I loved this cast of stellar actors & know we’ll meet again. Semper Fidelis.

The Code Season 1 Episode 12 Review: Legit Bad Day

Somehow you just knew Abe was going to be acquitted.

That doesn't mean that Trey and Maya had it easy on The Code Season 1 Episode 12.

The whole trumped-up charge was just so transparent to everyone.

Still, all those in the Jag office had to do their duties, regardless of what they thought about the merits of the case.

One of the best scenes was between husband and wife Steven Pasquale (Abe's prosecutor Lt. "Kit" Schuykill) and Phillipa Soo (his intransigent assistant Harper).

She tore into him for the obvious frame job on Abe, while he threatened to ruin her if she didn't do her usual stellar work.

I bet they enjoyed playing that scene.

Harper had minimal involvement while Kit hogged the prosecution spotlight.
