Well idk how "Magnum" I really am.

So I saw the first episode I extra'd in. Recognized the scene inside the PD bullpen (I was one of the uniformed PD officers walking through the background)... recognized some of the other extras... and I wasn't in any of the final aired shots at all lol

This latest episode (4) that just aired. Once again just saw the SWAT scene. I *think* I'm one of the guys just barely visible as we run up from behind the SWAT truck outside the building we're stacking up on. Can't really be sure cuz we're all wearing the same black SWAT uniforms and helmets (and the shot was off to the side and maybe half a second in frame lols) but the close up shot where they filmed the first 3 or 4 guys breaching (and then the camera zooms into the main detective character waiting outside) I was def not in either.

Ah, such is the glamourous Hollywood life of fame and fortune I'm in :rolleyes: ;) 😁 :cool:

Though I *think* (hope?) I'll be more visible in the "SWAT raids a hospital" scene in a few episodes hahah.

Plus now that strike has been averted they sent out an email with like 3 or 4 more shoot days they want us for that only one of which was a work day at the Fire Station so there's a few more chances for my half second of fame and glory lols

In a similar vein, thanks to COVID numbers falling below a hundred new cases a day, the Department has decided to lift our "Station bubbles" (where basically we were only allowed to work in our own station. Only OT if the other shifts were short, no matter how short staffed any nearby stations were, unless they were too short to stay in service). Now they lifted it to a Battalion bubble, so can work OT within our Bn (though most of the available OT is well, outside the Bn in the others), relieve at different stations to plus up when they're running shorter crews and all that.

Basically I'm getting what is my first OT shift at a different station in like 2 or 3 months this week lol

Idk looks more like the kind of movie where I'd be yelling at the screen every other scene for how blatantly wrong everything is, but hey looks flashy I guess.

If it's the trailer for that Ambulance movie (I didn't click the link), in one trailer he specifically says "do not shoot cops".
Ah. I just saw him grab a cop and the cop get popped. Maybe I wasn’t paying attention…(I wasn’t).

That moment when I get off shift at 0800, but I picked up a PM overtime shift tonight starting at 2000, so although I have 12 hours before going back to work, I feel like I have no time to actually go do anything, so the whole day ends up shot in a limbo like state lols (I'd rather have the OT though lol I haven't been able to pick up a shift in months

Professional fire departments that work 12’s are just weird.

Lol well we have normal 24s, just OT is either the full 24 or half shift. We actually only allow a max of 36 hours worked straight, so you can do a hold over for 12 or hold under (work the night before reg shift).

The automatic bid system for OT will refuse to give you a 36, so you can only bid for the PM half on the first day of the 4 days and the AM half of the last (it'll only give you the 24hrs for the middle two days).

It's the Bear that will force you for 7 straight that is weird to me 😜
