so it is basically a show about a bunch of ragtag, fast talking, quick shooting soldiers who have quirky personalities and are basically losers.

Better than a Gears of War TV show. Good luck finding the actors for that, their best bet would be to obtain a couple gorillas suffering from gigantism, shave them bald, and roid them out while they pull Ford F150s around the yard to build muscle. Dialog will be improved also.

I can play Haggard. It wouldn't be that far of a stretch for me.

Fixed. Not sure if you were saying exactly that tho.

The plot damn sure looks much more like The Losers than what I remember from Bad Company. Hell, even BulletStorm resembles this series plot better. And well, I'm sure both Bad Company and BulletStorm are based on The Losers anyway.

ah yes! thanks for reminding me. it seems my subconsciousness was telling me something. anyway, i would probably give a show like that a try through 1 episode. i don't remember of any successful tv series that contains the plot of what they are offering...

This is true, in part. When I read that I thought "True, I don't remember something like that since The A-Team, and it's been a while..." And inmediately the inevitable: "Ouch! It IS A-Team 2.0"

I'll still follow it (if it comes here, which is not a given), but it seems like the kind of game adaptation that I hate. I can't stop thinking that they wanted to make another A-Team series, or a The Losers series, or something similar, in any case NOT Bad Company, but they'll take the name because getting the rights for Bad Company is probably cheaper and is recent and probably much more recognizable for the target audience. Take the name, do whatever they want. Basically, like 90% of movies based on videogames.
