3.0 out of 5 stars Grew up watching this series, but barely remember. 5 Feb. 2015
By J. C. Bednar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Good videos of a barely remembered TV show from when I was growing up in the 1960s-70s. I remember mainly the opening title shots with the jeeps driving through the desert in between explosions- thought ththa was tough as heck!! Watching the entire series also brought back memories. Some of the episodes are corny as all get-out, and some held my attention. Neat to see American WWII vehicles painted up or sort of configured as German vehicles of the Afrika Korps, although the Germans DID USE captured Allied vehicles on all fronts. Since I build model tanks, this series has given me a few ideas on how to make a "movie tank"!! Overall, satisfied with this series. Purchased via Amazon and product arrived in a timely manner and in great shape - no problems viewing on different equipment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun. Tragically 25 Feb. 2017
By Dannan Tavona - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Raids and raids. A lot of fun. Tragically, the stunts eventually led to Christopher George's death, but that aside, for the budget, the writing was on average, above par. Hans Gudegast, now known publicly as Eric Braeden, makes the show as their persistent and honorable foe, and is the perfect foil for the American brashness. This series doesn't play well in England, though, as the actual desert raiders were English, South Africans, Rhodesians, and ANZACs. If you ignore that, most of the stories are decent -- though a few had the rats get into situations you knew should have gotten them killed. And of course, there's the score by Dominic Frontiere. Watch the rats have their dangerous fun ...
5.0 out of 5 stars Nazi Hunters in Africa 13 April 2015
By Larry G. Boyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I watched this show every week on television when I was a kid and just to see those Jeeps come racing over those sand dunes again in the opening titles brings back great memories about enjoying this with my family. The great thing about this particular series is that most studios are splitting up their series to snatch more money from people that really enjoyed these older TV series. (Case in point: Voyage To The Bottom of the Sea and Combat! and Lost in Space (although they are now releasing the whole Space series on Blu Ray for about a hundred bucks) Christopher George leads a small group of men in machine gun equipped Jeeps in hit and run tactics against the Nazi's during their WWII campaign in Africa. A very enjoyable show and the production values are excellent especially for a 60's television series. Special canvas covered case just adds to the nostalgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT WWII ACTION 5 Mar. 2010
By Mike Silverman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Good Stuff, well worth watching. The series starts out a little slow but picks up speed by the third episode. The stories are excellent, dramatic, exciting. Although..., some of the action is a little too unrealistic to believe. German guards and soldiers occasionally fall down a little too easily. Also, the scoring seems a little too upbeat and cheerful at times considering the circumstances of the war.

The characters are excellent, very well portrayed, you grow to care about what happens to them as individuals in the course of the series, particularly Seargents Troy and Moffit. Dietrich, the Captain commanding the German forces in the area seems at times to be a little too easily duped to be in charge of all the artillery and vehicles and troops that he handles. But the doubtful spots seem to get ironed out as the series progresses. The episodes become better with more thought given to how things might have really played out, and given the half-hour format the show does a remarkable job of presenting a full mission story in that limited time frame.

Some of the best episodes are directed individually by John Peyser and Sutton Roley both who also directed various episodes of the Combat! series. In fact if you have not watched the "Combat!" series already I recommed getting that one first, every episode of it is a five star production and there were a long line of very famous guest stars. Follow up that series with this one. Together they provide the best collection of high action WWII televsion series dramas produced in retro era TV.

The disks worked well , except for one disk which had a vibration problem, it would not align correctly in the player and caused a slight buzzing , although it corrected itself during actual play of the episode. but the buzzing returned when an episode was not playing on that disk. Strange. I'm not sure what caused it, but it was only on one disk and could be watched regardless. The quality of the transfer is excellent, the color and sound were top notch.

5.0 out of 5 stars a guilty pleasure 13 Aug. 2010
By Carrie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What a great show! Love to see those jeeps running circles around the German halftracks and tanks. Unrealistic for sure, but still fun.

I watched the show in the sixties as a teenager and enjoyed it, enjoyed even more MAD magazine's hilarious parody of it "The Ratpacktrol" which neatly summarized every one of the show's shortcomings. (Issue #114 October 1967)

But I still loved the show and when WGN started showing it after baseball games in the late 1990s I got hooked on it again, to the point of getting really irritated when games went into extra innings and preempted the Rat Patrol! My kids thought I was nuts.

So when I found the entire 58 episodes available on DVD, I was quick to order it, although I wondered if I would still find that guilty pleasure watching the show.

Oh yeah, I do. The DVDs are remarkably good quality, far better than the reruns I remember on WGN. The plotlines are still just as unreal of course, and this is apparent when you watch one episode after another as I have done. And of course the re-use of footage is kind of amusing, especially when the truck lumbering off into the distance is the same one you've seen half a dozen times before.

But so what? Love the jeeps! Love the way the guys risk life and limb week after week to rescue one another from improbable escapades! Love to watch Dietrich stand shaking his head at the end of the show after the Rat Patrol pulls off another dumb stunt! Love to hear Troy growl "Shake it!" And Moffit to say smugly "Piece of cake!" after another impossible mission. And Hitch saying to Troy reproachfully "Who was there, Sarge--you or me?" And Tully--well, he didn't say much. But he did chew a mean matchstick.

My dad's favorite was Combat and he was in France during WWII, so he should know, but for me it is Rat Patrol.

Airborne jeeps! Manly guys blowing things up! Good triumphing over evil! What's not to love?
