Dull, Routine WWII drama from producers of Combat!
8 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Combat! went off the air in 1967 after a successful, five year run. Garrison's Gorillas, also from Selmur Productions, took over Combat's same time period on Tuesday nights on ABC. Where Combat had a great character actor in Vic Morrow leading a strong supporting cast, Garrison had Ron Harper in the lead, and by time he got to the Planet of the Apes TV series some years later, he was still just as wooden and one dimensional as he is here. Only Christopher Cary and Cesare Danova(you know him as the mayor in Animal House) are any good acting-wise, and the writing wasn't nearly good enough for a show that was TV's attempt to cash in on the success of The Dirty Dozen, released the same year. CBS's take on the genre, Jericho(1967) was slightly better but was also filmed on the same MGM back lot just like Combat and Garrison's Gorillas were. By now you would see the same sets and backgrounds on three different war shows. And by the late 60's war was a little too real on the evening news and these type of WWII shows looked unrealistic and had run their course. Garrison's Gorillas was canceled and replaced by The Mod Squad in 1968.
