FInished. Really a shame this didn't catch on and they had to wrap it up but I thought they did so brilliantly, emotionally and credibly. Kept me guessing wrong, characters were charismatic and enjoyable. There's the occasional little lady holding off the big badazz but if you're the type not bothered by that, it's well worth the time.Timeless: Season one. Time machine, bad guys and good guys are greyish. Never picked up a big following so I know I'm only getting two seasons. Enjoyable characters, harmless fun and some interesting perspectives of key historical points. It's a Kripke project so even get a Toledo setting in one episode.
This winter may just be a good time to check this out. Back in the day, I doubt I paid much attention to the themes. Just the bang, bang.I just finished episode 48 of the tv series Combat! I have been watching them all, in order, for almost a year. The best military based TV show in history (yes, even better than M*A*S*H). The most recently watched episode "Gideon's Army" was especially poignant. The squad comes across a concentration camp with sick and dying prisoners. They do not say it (referring to them as "Polish") but clearly, from the background music and other characteristics, these people are clearly Jews and this is a "labor camp" which is a "death camp". Vic Morrows, who played SGT Saunders being Jewish himself made that all the more emotional.
Great series. I highly recommend it to any of you younger folks you are not aware of it.
You are mixing Combat! with Hogan's Heroes.I remember the Captain, the Sergeant and, I believe, a black (Ivan Dixon?), an Englishman (Richard Dawson?), and a Frenchman (Cage?). Others?
I found this mix of nationalities also strange (if in fact I am remembering correctly), but get it now.
Picked this up from the library during a power outage, but did not get to see it. Maybe TCM will run it again. Danke.Today is Rod Taylor day on Turner Classic Movies (TCM)
At 10:30 AM they will be showing Hotel (1967)
I like the art work in the opening credits...
