I always hated this show...
13 April 2019 | by mrwoof-367-885940See all my reviews

Last of the peacetime military comedies, going all the way back to "At War with the Army" w/ Dean & Jerry, killed off, I expect, by the war in Vietnam. This was a comic strip version of the Marines, and does not look all that good from the historical perspective. 1969 was the year of the Tet Offensive, which happened just about when episode 18 of this final season was aired.

Gomer never went to Vietnam. For Pete's sake, even Beetle Bailey went to 'Nam. A more appropriate last episode would have had Gomer going to Vietnam, and getting into a firefight where he heroically saved Sgt. Carter but was killed in so doing.

That's what M*A*S*H would have done. 🤔😉😊
