Christopher McDonald was originally cast as the lead in the pilot. But he was replaced with David Naughton when it was picked up for series. The pilot with McDonald aired as the final episode of the series. See more »
I thought this show had potential, but.............
Even after more than 20 years now, this show wasn't a totally bad sitcom and I thought it had promise, but for some odd reason I just couldn't picture comedian Jimmie Walker as a military man (since I still couldn't get over his J.J. Evans role from his previous series "Good Times"). This series did remind me a little in the combination of "M*A*S*H" and "Roll Out". One episode that stands out to me featured ex-heavyweight champion boxer Ken Norton looking to beat up the man who stole his girl (Tina Andrews). Of course that man was the Jimmie Walker character and how hilarious it was for him hiding out as a medical patient with head bandages. What a classic!
