Judge David Johnson went on a dangerous mission last night. He ate leftover Thai food had been in his fridge since October.
Go on the job with the world's most dangerous missions.
The History Channel has another dose of studs doing things you would never want to. Whether it's disarming mines or negotiating with hostage takers or parachuting behind enemy lines during World War II, I very much doubt that your pansy-ass would have the gumption to embark on these—dangerous missions!!!
Four discs, sixteen installments. Watch them and weep:
This isn't really a contiguous season of television, but an anthology of stand-alone features all containing a similar theme: doing these jobs will likely get you killed or maimed. In that respect—the killing and maiming potential of said missions—the set wildly succeeds. The spotlighted career paths are interesting, varied, lethal…and a bit dated, judging by the hostage negotiators' bodacious '80s wardrobes. Whatever. The content stands on its own, and anyone interested in an entertaining amalgam of men and women putting their bodies in harm's way would be well-served by these Dangerous Missions.
Nothing much to the disc presentation though. Full frame picture quality and
2.0 stereo with no extras.
