This episode was more uncomfortable than entertaining.,
27 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

In this next to the last episode of season one, we get a plot that is played out on nearly every sitcom in the history of comedies. We get a spoiled brat kid that seems to take over every situation by his father being in charge. And in this show the young boy happens to be the son of Admiral Hanson so everyone is wearing kid-gloves as the scamp causes problems for the entire cast. The script is so bad that even sailors disobey orders all because of this terror child saying his father is the Admiral.

And of course the kid just happens to get onto PT 73 while on a mission to locate a Japanese submarine and then breaks radio silence so that 73 location is given to the enemy. McHale finally becomes mad as a hornet and takes matters into his own hands. Then, without giving away the ending, the viewer can guess how most of these stories end, you will be correct again in this case.

For some reason I do not find comedy in a child being a disrespectful terror. Most people do not even want to be in the same room with such a child, thus most people really would not enjoy this episode. A great show for the use of corporal punishment.
