Storyline

Lt. Josh McGraw, a boyhood friend of Col. Gallagher, arrives at the 918th with his crew and bomber as replacements. Gallagher is glad to see him, but McGraw pulls some reckless stunts because he has always felt overshadowed by Gallagher and wants to make a name for himself. As his exploits grow to ever more dangerous and defiant levels, Gallagher struggles with how to handle his old friend and still get his missions accomplished. But this only seems to inflame McGraw's resentment and rebellious attitude even more. Written by alexk-6

Boyhood friends come together in war (again)
20 December 2011 | by (The 13th Colony) – See all my reviews

I think every time a call went out, in the mid 60s, for somebody to play a long time friend who had a grudge (or chip on his shoulder) then Gary Lockwood's agent flipped up on the old Rolodex. This episode sports great performances from Lockwood, Andrew Duggan and Lee Meriwether - and some true gems of examples of physical reaction acting from Robert Hogan as Lockwood's over burdened co-pilot. However, it just stretches the imagination too much. Lockwood's "Lt. Josh McGraw" is an old friend of both Gallagher and Brig. Gen. Brit (Duggan who seems to not need his cane so much in this episode) and McGraw's father is a big time general somewhere that got him in the same outfit as Gallagher. He also dates Britt's daughter ... but, in short, he envies Gallagher's command, his girlfriend (for this episode played by the talented Lee Meriwether) and pretty much just wants to undercut him. This role wasn't a stretch for Lockwood, as he had just wrapped up playing pretty much the same part for Desilu on the second "Star Trek" pilot - "Where No Man Has Gone Before." And it really is just a plain television episode. Part of the plot revolves around McGraw/Lockwood popping into bomber command HQ pretty much whenever he feels like it ... and pouring over classified data. When Gallagher's not babysitting McGraw, or in meetings with Britt, then he is romancing Meriwether - a junior officer - at headquarters. Surprised there was time to bomb anything.
