    If anyone is intrested the great war series from the USA, "Combat" :clap: is due out very soon on reg 1. I only saw a few episodes but they were great. Made in the 60s and stars Vic morrow and just about every famous US actor of the period in cameos. It is being released by image entertainment. Does anyone know of them?? Are they normally good or is it one of these cheapy companies??

    cheers

    Image have released some excellent dvds of lesser-known films and whatever, they've got an ongoing series of drive-in movies called "Something Weird" that really are stunners.
    I'd trust that whatever the release looks like it'll be the best they could get it.

    sounds good, never heard of it before and am surprised to find out that there were over 150 episodes made...would make it expensive to collect though.

    hey guys

    i got the firsts eason and have watched the first 3 episodes. I have to say i thought it was great. Basically, if you like any war films from the 50s and early 60s (ie Attack, men in War, Fixed Bayonets) Then you will certainly like this series. good acting, good characters, and good action. It feels like your watching a movie rather than a tv series :thumbsup: . Well worth it
