I hesitate to fuel the negativity that seems to dominate every thread on this board, but for purely informational purposes: The episodes on the second-season Combat! DVDs continue to average about 47 minutes each, just as on the first-season collections. Like those episodes, they are probably taken from time-compressed prints, not edited from their original length of about 49-50 minutes. This is based on my sampling various episodes on the upcoming discs, which I received a few days ago. For folks who are old enough to understand the reference, this level of time compression is about the equivalent of playing a 33 1/3 RPM record at 34 2/3 to 35 RPM. That's not that noticeable to most people, but it's there nonetheless.
