I don't know what channel it's on, but it's essentially a bunch of profiles and interviews with people who are aboard a nuclear aircraft carrier. It occasionally delves a little too deep into the personal stuff, but other than that it's quite engaging.

It's called...I don't know what it's called. I don't know the ship either. It's American, though. I've found it a couple of times while I was flipping through the channels.

Y'know, they should sell some cruise cabins on aircraft carriers. I'd pay for it, and it would help the federal budget.

You'd pay to take a cruise on an aircraft carrier? Isn't that kind of dangerous?
