Two Intense Stories, And A History Lesson
6 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are two stories here and the unusual thing is that the domestic one is the main story, over the "action" segment. Perhaps that's because it has to do with Jonas Blane's family, so that usually gets top priority on this show. It's a bit of a soap opera and a preaching effort from the racial standpoint as see (a) a young male husband as a bad-guy (wife beater) and (b) racism against blacks back in the Army in the Korean War. That part has to do with the title, "Silver Star," the award given Jonas father, 52 years late as they point out numerous times.

Am I imagining things or has this show suddenly taken a left turn politically the last few weeks? We have had several stories with the U.S. government and political guys as the villains, along with Tiffy beginning to do work with a self-described left wing protester, and other things. I would prefer no bias, just straight military stories, but Liberal slants seem to be inserted in so many other shows, it wouldn't shock me if they started that baloney here, too, but I would be very disappointed as I like this program.

I did enjoy listening to Jonas give the kid some really intense, short speeches. No one can deliver dramatic lines like Dennis Haysbert! It's no shock he's the star of this show. There are some touching scenes with Dennis as a young boy and an incident involving his father. Mixed messages are sent on that incident: good and bad.

The "action" segment is very dramatic as Bob and Mack try to talk down a man who is trying to fly a plane after the pilot is mysteriously found dead. The man says he's a former Ranger but Mack and Bob have their doubts....yet something strange is going on. This guy is part of some secret operation and has a lot on his mind he wants to confess, if these guys can talk him down. The ending to this part was kind of a shock.

In all, both stories were very intense, making this an above-average episode.
