Trivia

At the end of the opening of the show, Gerald McRaney (Major McGillis) picks up Chelsea Hertford (Casey), who instinctively took his uniform hat off and put it on her head. McRaney and the rest of the show's cast and crew thought nothing of it, however many Marines complained of the act, and so for the second season, it was changed to her going to take the hat and McRaney looking at her like, "No." The third and fourth season has her not even trying. However her removing the hat has been left in all first season episodes. See more »

Major Dud
10 January 2002 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

Major Dad was a dull and boring show. Ocasionally the show had its moments and you would catch yourself smiling. Most of the time, though, when this show came on you had to scramble for the remote. Most military shows are bad, and this was a prime example. Hogan's Heroes and MASH were good shows, Major Dad was a major dud.
