Early Moral Message
4 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many years after our own Civil War, this episode directed by vet sitcom director Hy Averback (F-Troop among his credits), what is addressed here is a visiting Sargent who owns a "moose" (Korean woman) & she is the equivalent of his slave. Hawkeye & Trapper do not care for the Sarge's attitude towards his moose.

They not too bluntly decide to make a point by getting him into a rigged poker game and Hawkeye getting ownership of his moose. Then Hawkeye has a problem as he now owns a slave he wants desperately to free but has trouble doing so.

It is interesting how the attitude towards the moose is different from the Korean House Boy Hawkeye & Trapper have serving them during the early episodes of the series. Of course they sent one of them to college in the US so I guess that explains their indignation with the moose as the sarge has no intention of sending his moose to college.
