All Reviews
A Hessian major rolls into Chester and starts raving for the head of the Yankee Doodle society on a plate. To that end, he forcibly grabs hostages, unknowingly taking Jeremy in the process. What plays out is a contrast between the hostages talking about memories of their lives - which includes some very sappy and skippable conversations bewteen Jeremy and sometimes love-interest Elizabeth - and very disturbing vignettes and nightmares experienced by the major. In the end, the major falls victim to his own delusions. Eric Braeden gives us a nice performance as the damaged Major Zanker. Not the best of the lot, but compelling viewing despite its flaws, nonetheless. ONE SENTENCE RE-REVIEW: That drivel above is an awful review of a very good episode of The Young Rebels.
