Basic Up
« on: November 06, 2006, 17:37:08 »
first off sorry if this is the wrong section. and i did search but way too many results came up.

I was wondering where i would get Episodes of Basic Up (that reality series that follows recruits around). I've seen the clips on the army.forces.gc.ca website, and would like too see more.

If the 15 clips aren't enough to slake your thirst, this video is pretty neat.

Oh they have a sense of humor alright ;D They'll say stupid childish jokes to you and if you laugh at them...pushups. They'll do silly things during inspections; use your beret as a swiffer, hang clothes off your shirt collar, if they find junk on your floor they'll gently place it ontop your head, they'll make you sing "I'm a little teapot".

Episode 3 clip 1 made me laugh what's with that girls' head movements? Very awkward.... Great video clips, I would love to see the whole thing. Lots of recruits couldn't read rank and were getting jacked man-o-man, better learn that before I go. The music when that guy was running across the bridge and fell was kind of funny. Episode 1 clip three horrible music, but perfect for clip......

the first season just started and it airs on the military channel that i believe you can only get on a CFB not regular / digital cable / statelite....

they are currently filming season 2, of which, i have the wonderful experience of having been picked for season 2, so, i've got them following me around this year with camera's and stuff...

I just checked the military channel they don't have a listing for the show yet. Too bad I don't have that kind of bread to spend on the videos. The clips are great. Thats pretty cool you are in the second season, what are they filming you doing? Basic? B1Q?

Don't worry, you will learn awful fast  ;D
Note to any Taliban and AQ personnel on the Form:  ALL SUICIDE VESTS AND EXPLOSIVE DEVICES MUST BE TESTED TO INSURE THEY WORK BEFORE GOING AFTER A TARGET.

This is a measure to save any embarrassment that may occur when your explosive device, does not function as it is intended to.

It has come to my attention that these measures are not being followed, so for all Taliban; please refer to the above.

Thank you for your cooperation

My game face is typically so many smiles and grins that they have no idea if I have something good in my hand, or just thought of something funny ;)

I think that's Army News you're thinking of, not the Military Channel.  The Military Channel is on dish, but Army News is closed ciruit to Army Bases.  I've seen a bit of the show playing on the tvs in the mess at lunch.  Must be wierd to see yourself on tv while you're eating lunch!  My buddies wouldn't let me hear the end of it if it was me!

« Reply #19 on: February 09, 2007, 14:58:49 »
I heard that there was a film crew filming a new Basic Up at St Jean this month.  Why are they filmoing a new one when we haven't even seen the first one yet?

Or has it come out?  I also heard they were filmingthe excersises at Farnham with the section attaks and stuff.  That might be cool to see, show me some violence!!

 ;) this is the Canadian {Armed} Forced, there will no violence here.  ;)

There is already a Basic Up out, search for it on the site.  I've seen few episodes and they're not bad.

There was a global tv crew at Farnham not too long ago doing a story on the Air Force.  Maybe it wasn't Basic Up.

I'm still waiting to see the first series!  There's clips on the site but not full episodes!  I want to see if Dumont gets yelled at any more!  ;D
