Episode 4 : ‘Combat Jack’ Review

Combat Jack. Episode 4 seemed to be a bit of filler. Charging towards Baghdad and continuing on with that same eerie feeling of tension between the Marines and their Commanders.

James, the second driver, is seen scoping out a target – Anti-Aircraft weapon, whilst being shot at, making the rest of the Marines more respectful of him.
Josh was trying to complete his first ‘Combat Jack, and Iceman enacts his most important mission of all, taking a shit during combat – comedy well placed.

The rules of engagement are continuing on that path of self-destruction.

Even though the Marines are eager to shoot and kill, you can see it in their eyes, that they are just doing a job. With or without abiding by the Geneva Convention. And definitely obeying their superiors.

It’s as if the Marines are saying “Hey! we’re here now, what else the f*ck are we supposed to be doing?”. This exemplifies the difference between previous conflicts.

The highlight when their road block mission is complete and Josh simply says:

“They think we’re cool, ’cause we’re so good at blowing shit up”
– Josh, the Driver

  1. thank you for this site. I love this series and I can’t get enough. My boss’s daughter is married to the real Lt Nate Fick and he’s every bit as personable and smart as he’s portrayed on screen.
