Watching when I was a kid, Combat made me fall in love with M1 Carbines. I now have 2 of them.

I wish I had 200 of them.

American Life Network, I think it is a new channel.

Uhm, only the LT [ played by Rick Jason } carried a carbine. The rest of the rifles were M1 Garands. Kirby was the BAR man and Sarge had the Thompson.

WhupWhupWhupWhupWhupWhupWh­upWhupWhup - oops, lost my head!!!

Great show! Vic Morrow hated the weight of his Thompson so they made a wooden one which lighter for him. IIRC - Believe he was anti-gunner.

The stories were classic and the show done well.

Rat Patrol was the shitznitz, loved it~~~!!!!

For some of you folks who don't know, Vic Morrow was killed in a helicopter accident while filming the movie version of the TV show Twilight Zone. He and a another Vietnamese child was killed when the copter got too close and hit them with its rotor blades.

Old fart, watched the show when it first came on TV.

Combat!" (1962) [TV-Series 1962-1967]

I don't have that channel, but I've seen it late at night on one of the channels (I don't know which one). It was my favorite show when I was a kid.

I think it IS available on DVD.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 4:06:17 PM EDT
Yep, they also run it late at night/very early in the morning.. The acting is kind of cheesy, but it is fun to watch.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 4:06:46 PM EDT
Are there any channels that run the Rat Patrol?

I have never seen it before.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 4:15:08 PM EDT
I caught a few episodes of Rat Patrol back in the day. Loved the pedestal mounted machineguns in the Jeeps. I seem to remember them being M2's though they were probably .30cals instead.

Never saw Combat until the mid-90's. Some cable station was running "Action Thursday" or something. We'd take our lunch when Combat came on. I should get the set. I loved it.

Awesome show.

Vic could kick Chuck "whats-his-names" ass and shove a pineapple grenade up it anyday.

Vic Morrow

ETA: That show turned me into the garand fanatic that I am!

I guess it has been almost 25 years since it happened...lot of guys here weren't even born yet...seems like almost yesterday
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 5:06:54 PM EDT
I watched it today, as a matter of fact. Pigeons with cameras. Pretty cool.

That show always had a big name guest star.

It's worth buying on DVD if you are too young to remember it when it was on....and even if you are!

There were some other notable WW2 shows on back then...that are still good!
