“One thing I did not expect…was that this…would turn out to be an intentional comedy.”

“Even when they’re engaged in hand-to-hand combat against terrorists or fighting for their lives against behemoth bugs, you can count on the brave men and women of Comic Relief Team 6 to spout off one-liners in the heat of battle.”
