Major John MacGillis is a conservative, by-the-book, die-hard Marine. Polly Cooper is a pacifistic, liberal journalist. Nonetheless, when the two meet, there's instant and intense chemistry between them. With the permission of Polly's 3 daughters, the two get married within weeks. Now Polly (and her kids) have to learn how to deal with being a Marine family, while Major MacGillis has to learn how to be a Dad... Written by
Major Dad was a wonderful show !! Funny and lovable !! I love Gerald Mcrainey and everything he has done. Polly and the girls are pleasant and cute. A very wholesome and family oriented show, wish it was still on !!!! They depicted the US Marine Corp with respect and admiration, which was wonderful. TV nowadays is very lacking in positive wholesome entertainment. They were able to deal with several issue like child abuse and family issues such as step children etc in a very tasteful way. Lt Holowachuk is hilarious and Sgt Alba Bricker is a scream !!! I particularly enjoyed the episode that Holowachuk revealed that he didn't drink, and he gained the respect of his fellow Marines regardless.
