Re: ‘Rambo’ TV series in the works

The character concept is that he's a jilted, emotionally damaged, rogue ex-commando, with a war hero's record, who no one respects as such. Long hair or not, if people saw a man today who had clearly been in the service, nobody would be dumb enough to treat him like shit
Sadly, that's not so clear cut. There are always those who are so deranged that they will heap scorn on any member of the military - even those who need help the most. So if Rambo were to be rebooted as a veteran of Iraq or Afghanistan, and returned home with the scars earned thereby, he'd still find shit being aimed at him just like in First Blood.
