Still in the introduction phase of the series.
14 September 2014 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

I guess if this is one of the first episodes that a viewer watched it may be entertaining. But actually, as you get into the series, this episode is rather dull and lackluster.

The Germans have developed a tank called 'Tiger' that is suppose to be the best thing since sliced bread. Hogan and his men actually steal the tank and take it apart so that the Allies can have the blueprints. And with the series being so scripted, the tank is actually stolen to the prison camp where all the events occur.

Right from the get-go, the writer throws in female for Hogan to kiss which will be a theme that runs throughout of the program. Why the need for this action so early in the production seems odd.

But with this show being the second episode (actually the first after the pilot was picked up for broadcast) I will give this a pass. We are still learning the characters and the situations that they face on a daily basis and can hope that the scripts improve with age. Just an average show for the second installment.
