I wish someone would re-run this series so I could re-watch it!
I watched this series when it premiered a long time ago. I liked it a lot. Since I was a teen then, it's sort of dream-like to try to remember all of it. I loved the play between the characters. Especially between "The Warden" and the "Con's". This is a much better series to watch than that movie they made with Lee Marvin. In the "Garrison's Gorillas" series, the characters and the play between them was more human and more humane with the convicts trying to win Pardons for working with the Allies against the Germans. I hope one day one of the television stations will re-run this series so I can re-watch and enjoy it again!!!
