Critic Reviews for Vietnam

I don't know how Jack was able to overcome all of his family drama and become a great father, but somehow he managed to do it. He really is Superman, isn't he?

"Vietnam" was actually a much quieter episode than I was expecting it to be and was all the more effective for it, so it would be nice to see them take the same approach for the natural follow-up episode.

"Vietnam" opens with an effective but familiar portrait of the Vietnam War; it ends like no war story I've ever seen before.
