Beneath the Helmet explores the story of Five Israeli high school graduates drafted into the military. Eden Adler (First Lieutenant), Oren Giladi (Private), Mekonan Abebe (Private), Eilon Cohen (Private), Coral Amarani (Sergeant) enter training for eight months,  discovering their core values, unearthing emotions from the past, and learning that their teenage lives are now changed forever.

Gary Cole vs. Mark Harmon

It's a network series talent smackdown and the stakes are high. With NCIS episode 3 of Season 19 debuting tonight, anything can happen as we learn more about Gary Cole's character Agent Park. As Mark Harmon steps back on NCIS and Gary Cole steps in...will Cole assume the NCIS throne or is this all shameless TV marketing? After 19 seasons can anyone really just replace Harmon?

Let's celebrate his legacy and share some of the films that showcase the many facets of John Ritter.  When Phil meets the woman of his dreams only to discover she's getting married in a week, he will do whatever he can to stop her walk down the aisle.
