    I love this show,but this episode was a disappointment.In a show that detail is everything,some important stuff concerning the mission are dead wrong.First of all,the name of the country is not "Republic of Macedonia",it is FYROM(Former Yougoslavian Republic of Macedonia).And it is important because there is a very strong diplomatic fight with Greece about that name.Second,Fyrom did not revolt against the Turks during the 19th century,Greece did in 1821.Fyrom was not even an independant state until the 1990's when Yougoslavia was divided.And last but not least,the language spoken in Fyrom is a form of Slavic,and not greek as spoken on the show.At least they got the flag right.Yes,I am Greek and I feel a bit offended that my language and my country's history is used as those of another country,one not so friendly to my own to be exact.The fact that one of the stars speaks greek during the episode,which is not an easy task,shows that this was not done by mistake.moreless
  • Excellent episode, very entertaining.

    This was another great way to depict how difficult it must be to make decisions against one's morals...the appreciation for what our military does should not be overlooked and should be appluadued and saluted. I was glad to see one of the unit members feeling more human as opposed to a soldier which is a refreshing stance that the show took on this particular episode.

    These examples are a great way to incorporate various factors into the show which makes it more entertaining on many levels for it's viewers. I suggest that the writers continue with their great plots and story lines.moreless
  • great episode

    Bob starts hallucinating about his past missions. When he goes on a mission at montenegro, he endangers his fellow unit members when he becomes sloppy. Tiffy do a little bit of research on Molly's past by going to her old town. She's only after her high school graduation photo, but she ends up finding out about a traumatic experience that Molly's been hiding from everyone all her life. It's a really good episode, the montenegro scenes look exciting. They have a simple mission, kill one man. But the preparations done for it takes months and a lot of set up. Great episode.moreless
  • I just don't know what to say. it was great yet ugguaaahhhh at the same time!

    First off. The team was suppossed to assasionate someone. who? did bob do what he was suppossed to do or kill the wrong guy? I now realizae that that was the point, to trick me into thinking that the guy they were supposed to kill was not the leader dude, but the assasin. I had to have that explained to me. it is me, or was that just not claer at all. Because I thought that bob had killed the wrong guy due to his "moral delema" well whatever, maybe I'm just stupid.

    Ok. next subject. TIFFY! I used to like her, now I hate her. she does everything wrong! If we could replace hector with her, we should. (I mean Hector lives and she dies.) But not really because she should get back together with mac and then everything would be happy again.

    Bob. Don't you think that he would face his delema after the first innocent person he killed? not after being a soilder for so long? Seemed wierd to me.

    I liked the scenes with all the guys laughing and just having fun. We don't get to see this so much. I also liked that Jonas's daughter came home. I like her. She should visit soon.moreless
  • Great episode. I can't believe they're not in this week!

    ***Contains Spoilers***

    Molly was just excellent in this episode. Finally we have an insight into Molly's personality. We find out that her father was a drunk and that he murdered Molly's school master on her graduation day. I can't believe she didn't tell her husband. I really didn't like the part where she told Tiffy and Kim not to tell Jonas. That will definitely lead to trouble in the future. Tiffy was just way out of line in this episode. I really hate her, which goes to prove what an excellent actress Abby Brammell is.

    Regarding the mission part of the story, the mission itself was not outstanding, (except for the surprise ending when we find out the target was not who we thought it was) as the focus was on Bob's moral problems. The part where he saw the Lebanese young man that he had killed in Lebanon and the women he killed in an older episode was just very well done. Great acting on his part. I really enjoyed Bob and Jonas's short discussion about Bob's problem. I liked Jonas saying to him that he wouldn't be the first one to leave because of these issues.

    I have a feeling Molly's father will be making a guest appearance on at least one of the upcoming episodes (whenever that will be). I just hope Molly gets her act together and tells Jonas before he shows up.moreless
