Saunders Is Boss !
17 November 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

"The Losers" is a story about 4 soon to be court martialees recruited for special assignment by Sergeant Saunders.

The Sarge has his hands full when most of his squad is wiped out during heavy artillery fire. He discovers 4 jailed soldiers and decides to use them for blowing a bridge. Kline (excellently played by Bill Bixby) is the chief antagonist constantly disobeying everything Saunders requests. Ash & Candell go along with the program but on their own terms. Lennon (excellently played by John Considine) portrays the coward of the group.

Ed Lakso's screenplay creates excellent conflict & character development between Saunders & the group while bringing Littlejohn into the spotlight as mentor to the young Candell. The story flows and has some fine exchanges & dialog between the stubborn Kline and Saunders. Lennon makes as good a coward as Otis Campbell does a drunk.

Director Caffey did a fine job with the combat & artillery sequences and as usual special effects were outstanding. The color programming totally enhances the action scenes.

Very entertaining episode.
