A good ending in early 1963-- not so great now.
20 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, a member of congress, Clara Clark, is visiting the base with the direction of picking out a regular GI to help sell war bonds in the States. The person chosen will be flying back to the US for six months and visit towns across the country pushing war bond sells. Binghamton wants the congress woman to pick Lt Carpenter but a push from McHale's crew has the congress woman interesting in McHale to return with her to the States.

But McHale is not the one for making speeches in public and would rather stay on the island. But with Ms Clark demanding that McHale return with her the situation looks hopeless for our Commander.

Was watching the episode with a younger friend that was not to impressed with the show. She thought it ended in a fashion that make the entire time watching almost useless. But you have to remember that this episode aired in early 1963, and the ending was quite obvious at the time. For some of you born after the 1960's you may have to do some research into the ending to find the reason for the show.
