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.
