Combat! is intense, dramatic old-fashioned television in every way. This war series never passes up an opportunity to instill its well-worn narrative arcs with often outlandish interpersonal drama, so when our boys head out to fight the good fight, it’s never just warfare at hand: Combat! almost drips with cliffhanger syntax.
Combat!: The Complete Fifth Season isn’texactly the kind of TV-on-DVD set that stands to lasso a new cross-section of viewers as they hit the format, but viewers who grew up alongside the Vic Morrow/Rick Jason show (or were ushered into it by fans) will no doubt find some solid returns on this edition that contains the show’s final episodes. They're pretty straightforward affairs, but sometimes that’s exactly what the TV gods demand.
Episodes included here: The Gun, The Losers, Chapel at Able-Five, The Letter, Conflict, A Child's Game, The Brothers, The Furlough, Cry for Help, Ollie Joe, Gadjo, Headcount, Anniversary, The Outsider, Nightmare on the Red Bull Run, Gulliver, Decision, The Gantlet, Entombed, The Bankroll, The Masquers, Encounter, A Little Jazz, The Partisan,and Jonah.
