“Enlisted” season 1, episode 4: “Homecoming” airs Friday on FOX.
In this episode, while trying to impress the girl he likes, Derrick accidentally promises to bring her son’s father home from war. Randy helps plan the sort of tear-soaked soldier reunion that he never had with his own father. Meanwhile, Pete and Jill must set aside their differences to lead the platoon in a game of flag football against the athletically superior Marines.
FOX describes the show as follows:
“Three brothers, one Army, but absolutely no fighting! “Enlisted” is an irreverent but heartfelt single-camera comedy about three brothers on a small Florida Army base and the group of misfits who surround them. Charming, funny and a natural-born leader, Sergeant PETE HILL (Geoff Stults, “Ben and Kate,” “The Finder”) was on a path for a huge military career until one mistake overseas got him booted stateside to Fort McGee, the base in Florida where his two younger brothers are stationed. Now, as head of their platoon, Pete must serve both as big brother and military boss. Corporal DERRICK HILL (Chris Lowell, “Private Practice,” “Veronica Mars”) is the middle brother – smart and sarcastic, he likes to stir up trouble and doesn’t really care about being a soldier. Private RANDY HILL (Parker Young, “Suburgatory”), on the other hand, loves it. He’s the hyper-enthusiastic, hyper-goofy – just hyper – youngest brother who wants to be the gung-ho “GI Joe” military ideal.”
“Enlisted” season 1, episode 4 airs Jan. 31 at 9:30 p.m. EST, 8 p.m. CST on FOX.
