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 »
This was a series about our finest fighting forces, the United States Marines. However, it showed a funny softer side of those very tough heroes. That made all the more reason to watch as they found themselves in some pretty strange situations. As with all Marine leaders, the Major would resolve each and every problem with leadership, compassion and honesty just as real Marines do all the time. Therefore, this made TV watching enjoyable for the entire family. We need shows like that today that portray those type of ethics and values. I can not wait for this series to come out on DVD. As far as I am concerned, the sooner the better.
