This one makes no sense....none.
23 June 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Aside from the episode featuring a young Charlie Sheen as well as Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini (a HUGE boxing star in the 80s), there isn't much to see in this one. The biggest problem is that the story just doesn't make much sense.

The show begins on a troop transport ship during WWII. A group of really obnoxious young soldiers are playing poker and treating an outcast, Arnold, like dirt. Later, when the troops hit the beach and it appears as if they'll die, Arnold comes to the rescue.

While the idea of the show is interesting...the twist just makes no sense and it leaves you with feeling like you wasted a half your of your life.
