  • Too young to really remember the first run, but...

    8.5 sister and Dad used to watch all the time. It was showing on The History Channel here a couple of years back and I recorded all of them. I really enjoyed the whole series and particularly the black and white episodes. Black and while always lends atmosphere to this kind of show. Too bad they had to go colour in the last season...

    I personally much preferred the seasons with Paul Burke (Col. Joe Gallagher), though for some reason I do have a strong recollection of my Dad saying that Robert Lansing (Gen. Savage) was more realistic in his performance as a commander. Frank Overton (Maj. Harvey Stovall) reminds me of my Dad... :o}

    I loved the archival footage they used in the series and it was a great deal of fun to see all the guest stars who went through the three years and became big stars in their own right.moreless
