If you thought the first series of Warship was bad....

.... check out Carrier - the American version.

Thick, indisciplined, moaning, dirty, bafoons.

This is a 10 part documentary shot onboard the USS Nimitz. Goodness knows how that Navy functions, it is an absolute shambles, either the programme is very harshly edited which I cannot imagine from the fiercely patriotic Americans or they don't realise just how bad it makes them look.

As I said, if you cringed a little at Warship series 1 or Shipmates on the BBC, check this out, it will make those shows seem like a gold standard.

It is showing every so often on National Geographic, available here for anyone who uses rapidshare or in a number of other locations online if you have a trawl.

Watch the yanks on their "cruise", on a "boat" apparently "acting like a babysitter because the world can't look after themselves without us watching over them".

Yes I caught this whilst channel hopping before the footy, and I too cringed and wondered (God forbid) how would they cope with another Battle of the Atlantic .

Surely though the most vomit-inducing has to be "Sea Patrol" set in Oz. Is the RAN really like this if so let me join.
During the 5 mins I watched this the XO (female) was sat on the jetty holding hands with the Buffer apparently the ship's bosun and gazing lovingly into his eyes EEEEUCCCHHHH!!!!!

Is fraternisation with female officers permitted within the RAN?
