Combat!

The Action Channel (Encore Action, part of the Stars Super Pack on most cable/satellite systems) is running the classic early 60's series Combat! starring Vic Morrow. It airs at noon eastern and repeats sometime overnight (depending on the movie schedule). Their schedule shows them running through the end of December, but that's as far as the schedule goes.

Now they need to start running Rat Patrol.

I remember this series from late-night college TV but never watched a lot of it. Just wish it was on a channel I didn't have to pay for.

Looks like Action plays The Green Hornet on Saturday mornings as well.

Guess I'll be signing up anyway.

Oh man, wish I got this channel.

Combat was great!
I remember Combat trading cards also.

Combat? Rat Patrol? Wish I got that channel!

Anyone else used to have a Green Hornet decoder ring that came in some cereal?

Sadly, I too can remember when these were first run on network TV. But I was really young at the time.

And I didn't have the GH decoder ring, but I did have the cardboard stand-ups.....
