A Terrific Episode: The Flagg Ship of the Series
17 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Margaret disappears from the camp. Actually, Klinger knows where she went, but doesn't get the message out. This leads to an all-out search for her. When that fails I-corps is notified and who should be sent but Colonel Flagg. The one liners abound. I love listening to Flagg tell of his experiences. I also enjoy the constant threats he makes when people don't listen to his drivel. Frank puts his arm around him "buddy" style and he says: "My father put his arm around me like that. He spent the rest of his life wearing orthopedic shirts." It is priceless. The whole thing about being show girl in Las Vegas is matchless. Anyway, there are probably three episodes I would never miss and this is one of them.
