  • You know, in my opinion, these early season 1 episodes just aren't as good as the the later episodes (ie season 5+) - it think it may be because they lack the comedy element. I don't know!moreless

    And know season 1 brings us another nerve-wracking, comedy-less episode! This one about guns, pranks & POW's! I tell you this - this episode certainly keeps you on the edge of your seat! I was a little surprised, however, that Radcliffe came around as quickly as he did after he had very nearly died - Now I'm no doctor but that just didn't seem believable for me!



    The guy who played Chapman did some terrific 100% acting in the final scene or so (when he meets Mary for the first time in 20 years). I thought he acted that really well.



    All-in-all a good episode but, as with the trend of the early years, it was comedy-less!moreless
