Obliterated - Born in the U.S.S.R.

So it's like The Hangover, but spies. I would bet that was the pitch for Obliterated which takes the now drunk, high, and hungover special forces crew on the hunt for a missing nuclear weapon. Despite being obvious to everyone, except apparently their superiors (who appear oblivious their drunken behavior), that the group are not up for the challenge the misfits are back on the case with even more infighting, bickering, and getting in each other's way while stumbling, mostly through dumb luck, on a lead. What I can say is that two episodes in, Obliterated knows what it is and doesn't feel the need to be anything more than raunchy fun (with more obligatory nudity to try and save a lagging story) against the backdrop of a terrorist attack and humor that is nowhere near as funny as it thinks it is. With writing this lazy, it's heard not to feel a little sorry for everyone involved.
