GREAT TV SHOW
12 September 1999 | by (Campbell.CA) – See all my reviews

I started watching Major Dad when it first aired in 1989 I liked it because it showed the Military in a positive light, and it was good family entertainment not like some shows on like M.A.S.H. I could not stand that show! all they could talk about was how wrong they thought the war in Korea was and we should not have been there It slapped at all the brave men & women who sacrificed there lives in that war.
