Nazis are the Washington Generals to America’s Harlem Globetrotters

Oh, yeah...because that doesn't look cliched at ALL.

The Cap’n & I spend a lot of time arguing about plot holes in everything Sci-Fi from Doctor Who to the Great Space Coaster, but I must admit: This man has us beat with a take down of that most unrealistic of shows, The History Channel’s WWII. I heartily recommend reading the whole thing, but here’s a teaser:

“I wouldn’t even mind the lack of originality if they weren’t so heavy-handed about it. Apparently we’re supposed to believe that in the middle of the war the Germans attacked their allies the Russians, starting an unwinnable conflict on two fronts, just to show how sneaky and untrustworthy they could be? And that they diverted all their resources to use in making ever bigger and scarier death camps, even in the middle of a huge war? Real people just aren’t that evil. And that’s not even counting the part where as soon as the plot requires it, they instantly forget about all the racism nonsense and become best buddies with the definitely non-Aryan Japanese.”

Read it already! Just think of the fun conversation you’ll have with Grandpa over Thanksgiving dinner!
