Six O'Clock Follies, 3 May 2015
Author: dweilermg-1 from United States

I considered this show to extremely offensive and refused to watch it after its pilot episode. What turned me off were the cheerful armed forces broadcasters talking about what a great guy then-president LBJ was. Those of us of draft age who lived through the Vietnam era hated LBJ for not keeping his promise to get American troops out of Vietnam while instead escalating US involvement sending many thousands of our guys to their deaths with no plan to win. At least on M*A*S*H there was no phony gung-ho attitude about the Korean War by those doctors (except Frank Burns). The Six O'Clock Follies was an insult to those of us who remember public opinion of the Vietnam war and the controversy it caused at home with numerous protests and demonstrations on our public streets and college campuses. Thank goodness this program suffered an early cancellation, a mercy killing perhaps thus making it ineligible for syndication.
