    I love Combat!.  I've seen them all.  Now I'm watching every episode again on American Life tv.  Saunders is awesome.  The swagger when he walks is just too cool.

    The DVD boxed set is great.  The quality is surprisngly good considering how old the show is and there are some great special features.  You won't regret buying it.

    I love Combat! and have watched the DVDs over and over. I love to watch Vic Morrow in action--he's a great actor. The whole squad is great, and I enjoy most of the episodes. For a 40+ year old show it's very well done.

    I'm another Combat fan from way back. I remember watching it on Sunday nights on reruns and then Mom would tell me to get ready for bed so i would get enough sleep for school. It's amazing watching it now how many of those episodes i still remember!

    In my country, a newspaper started giving it away, but only 52 selected episodes... and I got pissed off... and few days back decided to buy the "complete series" box set.

    More money than usual in DVD purchase, but this show is worth every penny !!!! A real monument !!!!

    Way to go, Sgt. Saunders !!!!!

    I saw Combat during it 1st run and has not seen it since but it is still on of my all time shows. I wish someone would carry it but in today world it is not PC enough. It is based too much on facts, the US win too often, there is good vs evil and you come away feeling too good about the US and what we did during WWII. Right now the DVD cost more than what I want to put into a DVD set. This is from a time when a TV season was a real season and not what they call a season today.

    I am currently working my way through the whole series on dvd. I am 3 discs into season 3 and loving every minute of it (well, except for the episode with the girl in the rose garden). I am trying to rate them as I go. It's hard not to give them all a 9.5 or 10, though, because the way I figure it-- a bad episode of Combat! is still better than most everything else. jrj.

    I love this show! I remember staying up past my bedtime to watch it. I now watch it on metv, but I think that I will still buy the DVD set. Lt. Hanley was my favorite.
