A Private War
29 December 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Doug and Tony are transported to an island in the Pacific on 17 February 1945. They subdue the old Japanese Sergeant Itsugi that seems to be alone in the island, but the Japanese Lieutenant Pilot Nakamura surprises them and reverts the situation. Nakamura had studied In USA and challenges the time travelers in a war game to humiliate them, releasing Doug and Tony in the jungle without weapons to hunt them one hour later. Meanwhile, the Time Tunnel personnel discovers that the scientists are in the Minami-Iwo on the eve of the attack to Iwo-Jima, and invites Dr. Nakamura, who served in the island, to identify landmarks to bring Doug and Tony back. However, Dr. Nakamura recognizes his son, who lost the nerve to commit hara-kiri and felt in disgrace, and was left behind in Minami-Iwo by his own father. Dr. Nakamura demands the rescue of his son to give the necessary information to the staff.

"Kill Two by Two" is one of the most dramatic episodes of "The Time Tunnel". The stressed situation of Lieutenant Nakamura is explained by his father and another drama develops in the Time Tunnel complex. Mako gives a powerful interpretation in the role of a tortured man with education overseas that faces a private war after breaking the tradition of his people and seeks redemption in the end. My vote is eight.
