The 918th is being chewed to pieces while attempting to bomb a target in Norway so secret, even Joe Gallagher doesn't know what it is or why it's so important. In fact, in it's latest try, the mission commander, Col. Christie, decides to abort and turn back only 4 minutes from the target after losing 8 out of 21 bombers, with 4 more heavily damaged including his own. Infuriated by the excessive losses and secrecy surrounding the missions, Joe alienates his superiors when he aggressively defends Christie against a looming court martial. To the rescue, possibly, rides his father, Lt. General Gallagher, who is hellbent on getting his son his first general's star. But Joe is in no mood to discuss promotion with his friend and the reputation of the 918th teetering on the edge of oblivion. Written by alexk-6

I am so excited about this series..
28 October 2008 | by cvilgiateSee all my reviews

I have tried and tried to get a copy of just this episode from Fox to no avail. The internet is an incredible tool nowadays. But time has really been my enemy. Since I discovered my mom was an actress I have been trying to scrape up all the info I can on her. I think that she worked in television and theater mostly. She wasn't successful and died when I was 7. So I am excited to be able to order this DVD series. My mother was in Grant Me No Favor (Chariss Eland). I don't believe she is even in the cast list. This is such a dream come true to see her again, even if she just crosses the room and that's all.!! I am grateful too, because I understand many people don't get this kind of opportunity to see their loved ones.
