Movie Reviews

Excellent Second Season!
J P Falcon | Fords, New Jersey United States | 11/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When I reviewed the first season DVD set of COMBAT, I said that it truly warranted a 3 1/2 star rating....now however we are getting into the swing of what COMBAT was to become....the second season is so chock full of terrific episodes that it is hard to know where to begin....I'll highlight a few episodes from this season:

1. Bridge at Chalon - Lee Marvin stars as a demolition expert who is attached to Saunder's squad in order to blow up a bridge..Marvin chews nails in this episode, and we get to see clumsy Little John in action...

2. Doughboy - Eddie Albert is a shell shocked WWI soldier who mistakes Saunders for the HUN

3. Long Way Home - Richard Basehart plays a sadistic German Officer who captures the Squad..Simon Oakland excels in a broken prisoner, who does not want Saunders to make waves...

4. The Wounded Dont Cry - COMBAT tried to be fair and show that there were German soldiers who were humane, and not depict all of them as stereotypically evil, and this episode, regarding a German Medic, illustrates this point...

5. Anatomy of a Patrol - A classic in my opinion, as James Caan plays the Seargent of a German Squad who tries to outwit Saunders...think of how Kirk and Khan played a game of cat and mouse in Star Trek II as well as Robert Mitchum and Kurt Jurgens in the WWII submarine movie The Enemy Below, and you have the comparisons to this episode....

6. What Use are Bugles Blowing For? - A great 2 part episode of a Britsh Squad protecting a Railroad station that will soon be encircled by the Germans...it is up to Saunders to convince the officer to abandon the station...great action and a very good character study of USA and UK soldiers...

7. Gideon's Army - a very poignant episode concerning Saunders squad discovering a concentration camp...very sensitively handled...

Those are are few of the fantastic episodes of the second season, and actually I only can think of one episode that I thought was totally awful. It was called Infant Of Prague and was concerned with a bunch of stupid nuns, who by the end of the episode, you were starting to root agianst them...anyway that's it....enjoy....highly recommended!!!"
Worth buying just to see, THE PILLBOX
Michael Appel | Wisconsin | 10/18/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an outstanding TV series and it got an outstanding DVD release. Your money is well spent just to see the episode, THE PILLBOX. It's great, as are the rest of the episodes as well."
Going Back 43 Years
Bruce Schindler | Pittsburgh, PA | 04/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After looking at all 5 seasons, I concluded Season II was
the best. From this Part II, Barrage, The Pillbox, The Eyes
of the Hunter, Counter-Punch, Weep No More, Rescue, and
Command all made my personal top 50. 8 more from part I
made my top 50, have separate review for that."
