When Hollywood Screws Up

I'm really a huge fan of the new ABC television show Last Resort... but it really pisses me off that they are too fucking cheap to hire a Navy advisor to help with a TV show about a Navy submarine... And I know that I am a pedantic Virgo --- BUT----- I just finished watching the latest episode of the Last Resort TV show... and after all these years of making military and naval movies and TV series, you'd think that Hollywood would know that the US Navy does not salute uncovered!!!!
