Storyline

Like "The Party," this is another episode strictly for laughs. The squad is sent to evacuate the French village of Bonaire, but the villagers do not want to evacuate. The village's main industry is the production of cognac, and they do not want any "foreigners" to interfere. They disguise the distillery as a monastery, and they proceed to hide the cognac in a nearby cave without the squad members finding out. It's all tongue in cheek instead of the usual drama of firefights and terror. Like "The Party," three good looking gals are featured in this episode, and Danielle Aubry plays one of the gals in both episodes. The cat and mouse escapades of the French villagers continue to the end, and the only shot fired is early in the episode when Hanley uses his carbine to get the villagers' attention.

Silly Episode that does not Fit to Combat!
17 November 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"The Town That Went Away" is a silly episode that does not fit to "Combat!". Fans of this series certainly enjoy the realism of the documentary-like style in black and white with great characters. It is hard to understand what the writer George F. Slavin and the producers expect from this disrespectful and unfunny episode. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "A Cidade que Sumiu" ("The Town That Went Away")
