Past & Present: 20 Active & Retired Federal & Postal Employees Of Your Fall TV Lineup

Have you noticed all the federal & postal workers on new TV shows? Meet the cast of awesome active and retired feds from past and present TV seasons!

Posted on

1. Breaking Bad & the DOJ

Law enforcement agents from the DEA work to fight drug smuggling and use in the U.S. -- let’s just say they've got their hands full the rest of this season.

2. NCIS & the real NCIS

Did you know that "NCIS" stands for Naval Criminal Investigative Service? These Navy civilian employees investigate and defeat criminal, terrorist, and foreign intelligence threats to the United States!

4. Boardwalk Empire & the USPS

These postal service prohibition agents were fierce and definitely delivered, just like today's postal inspectors who fight criminals who attack our nation’s postal system.

10. Chicago Fire & the U.S. Forest Service

We love this spotlight on Chi-town’s finest, and that’s just a glimpse into what our federal firefighters are up against, fighting wildfires across the country.

11. MASH & the U.S. Army Medical Corps

The 4077th might not have been your traditional Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, but when those helicopters landed they sprang into action!

14. X-Files & the FBI

FBI Special Agents Mulder and Scully are always searching for the truth...just like real world FBI special agents (though with less paranormal phenomena).

16. Seinfeld & the USPS

“Newman!” He may never have delivered the mail on time, but thousands of postal workers across the country safely deliver your mail on time every day.

18. Yogi Bear & the U.S. NPS

Ranger Smith was always trying to stop Yogi from stealing "pic-a-nic baskets" from campers. I wonder if any of our park rangers have run into "smarter than your av-er-age bears" while on the job?
