This is one of the greatest shows that no one ever saw! It was halfway between M*A*S*H and China Beach. I think it just came on too soon. It dealt with issues of Vietnam vets before anyone wanted to hear about them. Years later, when "Good Morning, Vietnam!" came out, people were finally ready to laugh and cry about the war.

I was still a kid when it came on, but even so, I could appreciate it, because the acting was so good. One minute something funny was on, the next minute, someone was struggling with survivors' guilt. Maybe some day there will be a show like this for the war in Iraq. A mix of laughter and tears might help those vets, too.
