5.0 out of 5 stars What a shame it had to end!, September 27, 2005
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Combat - Season 5 Invasion 1 (DVD)
Own all five seasons and hated to see it end.Combat was still rolling along when it was suddenly cancelled.Many blamed the
color version of season five helped kill the show,but that is
far from the truth.Season Five is/was terrific as well as the
first four.From what i understand,the producers back in the
60's wanted to get the show to syndication as quickly as possible
and thus the reason for cancelling.....more money!Today its just
the opposite,keep the show running to make more money.I am glad
i purchased this complete series,the only drawback was the time-
compressed issues of the first 4 seasons.Image claimed that
these time-compressed versions produced the best possible picture
quality and couldnt get hold of the original.I hope that this is
true,but wonder - how did they find Season Five?Also heard that
the entire series is going to be released in December in one
complete box package,better not be non-time compressed or i will
not be a happy camper!
To the person below - Time compressed basically is this:
The show (film)s speed is increased so more commercials can
be squeezed in once a show hits syndication.There isnt any
cutting or missing footage,however the extra time,say 2 or
3 minutes for commercials is made up by the films speed.The
film runs faster,usually barely noticed by the human eye,but
careful study you can sometimes see a slight difference
in lip sync to the words.In combat,its not all that noticeable
in most episodes.
