One of the Dullest Episodes Every
25 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a two part episode which began the tenth season. A group of performers get stuck in the camp. None of them are very good. The emcee/comedian is terrible, even though he cracks Charles up. There is a stripper who does a lame routine. The second half doesn't get any better. One of the performers needs an appendectomy and then falls in love with Hawkeye, who for some reason has no interest in her. Talk about out of character for the chief surgeon and skirt chaser. I suppose what they wanted to do was introduce some entertainment into the show but it doesn't work very well. One interesting thing is that Hawkeye and B.J. abandon any of their fun. Very poor writing.
