Trivia

The title refers to Tokyo Rose, a generic name given by Allied forces in the South Pacific to any English-speaking female broadcaster of Japanese propaganda who tried to disrupt the morale of Allied forces while the servicemen listened to their broadcasts of popular music mixed with messages of discouragement. Most of the DJ's were raised or educated in English speaking countries. See more »

Joe Flynn was excellent in this episode
21 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the Pacific about the only radio station that can be received is a Japanese propaganda broadcast featuring Nippon Nancy. Nancy plays American music and gives American baseball scores but also throws in how the Japanese is going to defeat the Allies in the Pacific arena.

But for the last few weeks Nancy has been broadcasting personal information about our Captain Binghamton. Nancy correctly stated that Binghamton was having digestive problems and even correctly stated the blood pressure of Binghamton. Someone on the base is giving information to the Japanese.

When Binghamton sees McHale talking to Fuji, it sets in motion an arrest of our Commander. But before the arrest can take place, the Admiral arrives with arrest warrants of his own.

Joe Flynn was at his best in this episode as his actions and demeanor made for an entertaining show. The show was made better by an interesting script that kept the viewer attention the entire run of the show. Good watch.
