An Anti War Nail Biter
16 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews


Maybe, just to be on the safe side.

This episode was written and directed by Robert Altman and shows a big advance to the mature visual style of the series after a clunky start.

This is also one of the best episodes with Morrow in top form and Salmi matching him doing a variation of a character he practically patented, the abrasive bully.

This might be the first episode Morrow's character reveals he was a shoe salesman before the war, making him a clear contrast to Salmi's career soldier.
