  • Little bit slower than previous ones..

    7.7
    I mean, the last couple of episodes have been quite strong ones and this one just felt little dull and slow and.. I am not sure. It had a point and all that but still, in the end.. it felt like something was missing.



    I liked the CJ storyline continuing from previous episode.. the whole chicken thing and how she went to the show and what she did there. Brilliant.



    But the main storyline.. Leo.. and his old friends.. and ofcourse dangerous situation with shot down soldiers in Korea.. Some tension there, lot of emotion from Leo's storyline.. but that was not enough.. Would have liked something moremoreless

    • Admiral: A four man SEAL team will HALO drop over the crash site under cover of darkness.

      HALO stands for High Altitude Low Open, meaning that (SEALs) jump from the air craft at a higher altitude than for normal dives and open their parachutes much closer to the ground to avoid detection.
