68 Whiskey is a military drama television series that follows the daily lives of the US Army personnel deployed in a remote Afghan base, nicknamed "The Orphanage". The show is based on the Israeli series "Charlie Golf One", created by Zion Rubin and produced by Yes Studios. It premiered on the Paramount Network in January 2020 and comprises ten hour-long episodes.

The series features a diverse ensemble cast of characters, each with their unique personalities, backgrounds, and struggles, providing a humanizing glimpse into the physical and emotional challenges faced by those who serve our country. The cast includes Sam Keeley as Cooper Roback, a talented and impulsive Medic who is haunted by his past mistakes and is always trying to prove himself. Gage Golightly portrays Grace Durkin, a fearless and ambitious Combat Medic who strives to make a difference and keep the unit safe while balancing her romantic relationships. Cristina Rodlo plays Rosa Alvarez, a dedicated and resourceful Nurse who faces personal and professional conflicts as she tries to keep her secrets hidden.

In addition, the cast includes Jeremy Tardy as an intelligent and rebellious Sergeant who questions orders and the Army's motives, Derek Theler as Sasquatch, a laid-back and gregarious Special Forces Operative who occasionally causes mischief but always has his comrades' backs, Beth Riesgraf as Major Sonia Holloway, a stern and demanding psychiatrist who leads the mental health unit, and Lamont Thompson as Colonel Harlan Austin, a no-nonsense and experienced officer who oversees the base's operations.

The show takes place in a war zone, where the stakes are high, and danger is always present. However, 68 Whiskey manages to balance the intensity of its military setting with moments of humor, romance, and camaraderie, highlighting the bonds between soldiers and the coping mechanisms they use to deal with the stress and trauma of their job. The series tackles various themes such as the toll of war on mental health, the effects of bureaucracy, the moral dilemmas of being a soldier, and the complexities of interpersonal relationships. The show also addresses the Afghan culture and the challenges of bridging the cultural divide between the American soldiers and the local civilians they are meant to protect.

The cinematography of the series is exceptional, capturing the arid and rocky terrain of Afghanistan with both stunning wide shots and intimate close-ups. The sound design is also noteworthy, immersing the viewers in the sounds of the base, the helicopters, and the gunfire, and adding to the tension and realism of the series.

Overall, 68 Whiskey is a compelling and entertaining television series that provides a nuanced and empathetic portrayal of the US Army soldiers serving in a foreign land. The talented cast, the well-written scripts, and the impressive production values make it a show worth watching for military drama enthusiasts and casual viewers alike.

68 Whiskey is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on January 15, 2020.
