This script was very unfortunate for writer and viewer.
3 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do realize that after four season that it gets difficult to write scripts for a sitcom that is basically stationed at one point. Plus we know that we are going to sometimes have to bear with similar scripts that we hope contain enough laughs that we forget that the episode had the same plot a few weeks ago. But in this episode the writer came up with something totally different. However silly and uninteresting the script is we have to give the writer a high-five for trying. But this concept should have been rethought.

In this episode we have a gas pump assembled right outside of camp so that convoys of gas trucks can fill up on their way toward the front lines.-- (yes, I know it is hard to believe)-- And you can already guess that Hogan has to find a way to destroy the convoy and the gas pump.

Since the gas is located at the prison camp, Hogan has to develop a plan where he does not blow-up the camp injuring or killing the prisoners. And without giving away how Hogan accomplishes the task of the convoy and pump, all I can say is that it was very unfortunate for the writer and viewer.

All sitcom eventually has a clunker of an episode. And since the series really has not had a poor offering since its debut, it was overdue. Of all the episodes I have seen, this is unfortunate even to rate.
