The Department of Homeland Security, the television series?


I am not making this up.

Current Terror Alert Level
Terror Alert Level

There's a new television show based on The Department of Homeland Security, titled D.H.S.. I guess they realized that The O.C. was a hip edgy name so they'd try it too.

The audio clips I heard on the radio seemed to make the DHS sound like a non-stop adrenaline-rush guns-drawn kind of department, when my personal experience tells me it's a bunch of color-coordinated, shoe-inspecting, nail-clipper-confiscating X-ray machine operators.

I think they should have more realistic episodes, consisting of security personnel doing typical everyday things like X-raying their own heads or possibly getting upset when the Terror Alert Level changes color and they have to ditch their entire ensemble for the day and change into yellow, say.

  1. This is so funny. Man, people must be really starved for entertainment if they watch this. Maybe it’s an April fools joke, but they are so so clueless (http://www.atrevido.net/blog/PermaLink.aspx?guid=d704bb7a-5af8-436c-af6a-c11397e82bb4) that they released on the wrong day?

    Ah yes. Maybe a few episodes of college kids smuggling contraband onto commercial flights, and a budget review in which Congress finally learns that billions and billions of dollars are being spent with very little actual security being realized.

    The billion dollar question: Who is the actress providing for the M-appeal?

    Raymond – That was so funny. I couldn’t stop laughing. Thanks for the great post.

    Now along with Terrorist and homeland security as buzzwords now we have the tv show, great. Talk about milking sympathy. Nothing to see here, move along.

    Sorry, but we Brits already copyrighted & TM’d DHS. In Scotland it means "Department of Health for Scotland" and in the rest of Britain it used to be something to do with social security I think (did it change under Maggie Thatcher?). It is now the DHSS anyway, or was the last time I was there, and is comically known as the Department of Stealth and Total Obscurity. So send us the money, or we’ll sue!

    HA HA HA HA HA Raymond. Nice mix of hollywood, internet and government humor.

    Who know elmo was so terrifying? Longing for the long lost days of "oscar the grouch"
