It's 1961. Two servicemen smuggle a box of military gear to USA. Leroy tries out a military camera and accidentally takes a picture of some military facilities. Army finds one of the pictures and thinks they're communist spies.
This show was based on an English show of the same title, I believe. It was written well and not short on laughs. A line that sticks out happened when the son, Terry Feester played by Sam Whipple, was eating frozen french fries and the father told him he was supposed to cook them first and, in a very Jeff Spiccoli manor, he replied, "Not if you like them crunchy." Much like Kramer on Seinfeld, the son would come in at inopportune times with lines like, "Have you seen my Hulk head?" George Dzundza as Gordon Feester was excellent. There were only twelve shows and I think it only lasted four months. I'm pretty sure it ran on Friday nights. Maybe if they had tried another time slot. Too bad they didn't give it a chance.
