Reality TV has now gone *way* too far ...

This is the place to read all about submarines in the real world!

The Silent Service has finally been discovered by prime time - "The Submarine"

Worrying ... ???

Maybe the producers should approach a real Navy (USN, RN etc.) and make a deal to film on the real thing. The producers could make a sizable donation to the Navy Morale, Well being, and Recreation Fund in return for the filming.

I agree entirely, Chips - this is how it should be done properly . Nice video :)

However, I confess I'd pay good money to see a combat-ready Russian attack sub (Akula, Alfa) play tag with the contestants reality-TV boat. "One ping only ..." :D

"Sub reality TV" obviously hasn't made a big splash (ha ha) with our navy guys down here, even if ours was just a documentary shoot:
