Was hoping for a unique story but was disappointed.
5 January 2016 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

This is one of those scripts that after watching just a few minutes your pretty sure how the story will end. And as you sit and watch you hope, beyond hope, that the writer will throw some sort of twist into the ending. But in this tale we are left with a predictable ending that was seen at the beginning of the show.

It involves two Civil War soldiers, one being from the North and the other from the South. They are solo guarding a post on each side of the battlefront and suppose to report any movement of the enemy. When it becomes bitter cold and begins snowing they both find themselves entering an abandon shack for shelter. During their time together they think of an easy way to end the conflict between each side. And it all hinges on the two getting back to their Generals with the plan.

Because of the situation, there is much dialog and little action throughout the episode. And when the time for the climax to arrive, we have already guessed what is going to occur and bring an end to the show. And right on time, the show ends as expected. Just was not that entertaining of a tale.
