Felt like an old script where names had been changed
2 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know we are closing in on the end of the fourth season but it seems that the stories are getting all alike as we have another radar detector that must be destroyed. The only thing different from this episode than others- is that the scientist is a British-born woman. About the only change to the script is they replace "he' for 'she'.

General Reicker is in charge of the air defense of German cities and now has the help of a British scientist named Valerie Stanford. She has developed the most sensitive radar that can actually show the number of planes in the air and where they are going to hit. Now the German will have the advantage of knowing the number of planes and where air defense is needed most.

And as always Hogan has to think of a plan that will make the radar system a failure. But when the lovely Valerie Stanford tells Major Hochstetter about being visited by Hogan, the Gestapo Major arrest Hogan. It looks like Hogan has finally been caught.

There is really not much to this story that we have not seen or heard many times throughout the series. Even the comedy felt old as the same topics of- the Russian front, the escape-free prison camp and Schultz seeing nothing- did not bring any new material to the surface. The only bright sport was the performance of the actors. With a more imaginary script this could have been much better.
