Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This tape collection consists of selected episode from the Fox Network TV series The Dirty Dozen. Per the title, the series was inspired by the popular 1967 theatrical film of the same name. During World War II, a group of GI prisoners with nothing to lose are taken from their "home" in Marston Military Prison. Ordered to whip this wild bunch into a crack special-forces unit, Lt. Danko (Ben Murphy) must instill discipline without completely diluting the prisoners' killer instincts. Instead of the rapists and perverts of the original film, each of the twelve misfits is blessed with highly developed individual skills: one is a master of disguise, another a strategist, still another a demolition expert (What price Mission: Impossible?) Inexpensively filmed in Yugoslavia, TV's The Dirty Dozen was originally broadcast April 30 to July 30, 1988.
