Ridem Cowboy
4 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Cowboy here is a chopper pilot who wants to go home because he is worried that his beloved is cheating with another man at the home front after he receives a letter from her hinting that is happening. He gets wounded and tries to get the unit to send him home. Enter Henry Blake (Mc Stevenson) who makes one of his rare decisions that Cowboy is not hurt seriously enough to home.

All of a sudden, Blake has a target painted on him. He starts having serious accidents and close encounters with serious injury. The high light of the show is when he goes to the latrine and it blows up around him leaving him with a toilet seat hanging around his neck.

Overall this is a funny episode with Stevenson for once getting more work than Alda and doing very well at being funny. This episode illustrates the reason that the early episodes of the series are sometimes better than the later one, because the support cast around Alda is better while Trapper & Blake are there. Alda's main scene in this one is finding Cowboys booby trap materials in his foot locker & calling Blake on the radio when he is in mortal danger on Cowboys Chopper.
