Bluestone 42 is a comedy drama series about a British bomb disposal detachment working in Afghanistan. It focuses on the camaraderie, bonds and banter they share, even though they are risking their lives defusing hidden bombs everyday.
Mac and Rocket are determined to steal as many ‘souvenirs’ as possible before the camp closes whilst Towerblock’s attempts to help mend Bird’s broken family ties cause his wife to jump to the wrong conclusion.
This is an amazing comedy that has a very serious undertone that shows how some members blow off steam when they aren't putting there lives on the line disarming bombs. The only thing you will find wrong with this show is that there are too few episodes. The first season introduces the cast and you quickly get to know and care for them. The second season we are treated to a larger story and this concludes with a surprise ending that has us all wanting to see the 3rd season start as soon as possible. Over all this show gets a 8/10 form me. Read more
