Unrealistic and Annoying Episode
16 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

While fleeing from the Germans. Lt. Hanley and his squad stumble upon the old Sister Therese and three aspirant nun bringing a dead nun on a small wagon to be buried. Li. Hanley tries to convince the women to escape from the German with them for their safety, but the stubborn sister wants to go to their convent to bring the Infant of Prague's statue. Lt. Hanley finally convinces them to go with his squad but while sleeping in a barn, Sister Therese sneaks out to the convent to bring the statue in the village that is now taken by the Germans.

"Infant of Prague" is so far the worst episode of "Combat!", worse than "The Battle of the Roses". The unrealistic and annoying story shows an irritating character, Sister Therese, and unconvincing situation with Lt. Hanley and Caje returning to the occupied village and risking their lives to bring the lunatic old nun back. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Menino Jesus de Praga" ("Infant Jesus of Prague")
