Parker is a look-a-like for a British General
1 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Ensign Parker is a near look-a-like for a British General named Pelly. Gruber comes up with a money making plan where Parker will dress up like the General and they will take money from sailors posing with the General. Binghamton makes a appearance and put a stop to the foolishness telling Parker he could be arrested for posing as a General.

It just so happens that the real General Pelly gets word, thanks to Binghamton, that he has a near double on the base. He needs a person to pose as him while he conducts a secret mission. They want the spies in the area to think that the General's whereabouts are known while the real General leads an invasion force. Parker will pose as the General. But it will not be easy when someone wants the General dead.

This was a likable story that was interesting enough to keep the viewer's attention the entire time. Maybe not the best episode in the bunch but there is not much you can do when a regular cast member has to play two roles in a show. Even though Joe Flynn was not in many scenes, the ones he was in was memorable. Nice watch.
