Down Periscope on Hindsight is Horrifying

Kelsey Grammer vs the United States Navy! It’s “Down Periscope.”

In this schlocky 90s comedy, Lt. Cmdr. Tom Dodge and his tattooed dick are facing a stacked deck.

Due to his decorative penis and quirky methods of command, Dodge has been passed over for promotion by the Navy Selection Committee year after year. But when Rip Torn decides to pull rank out of pure nepotism for his own errant son (which no one seems to notice or care about), Dodge finally gets a shot at captaining his very own recommissioned, yet utterly decrepit, submarine.

It’s up to Dodge and his colorful crew of misfit seamen, including a shockingly female Diving Officer, to navigate the USS Stingray through a War Games exercise that will determine his fate in the U.S. Navy. Does Dodge win the war games and Jim Carrey’s woman amidst self-inflicted chaos and loony piracy on the high seas? We’re not sure we even care, but in this episode of HIH, we discuss Down Periscope.

She is also “funny, insightful, and sarcastic,” according to her boyfriend, who is currently under duress. You can take the Oxford Comma from her when you pry it from her cold, dead, and lifeless hands. She also speaks Spanish, unlike Ron Burgundy.
