Better than expected.
16 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first I thought this was going to be another poor offering by the writers. Even the title of the episode did not cause any stir of excitement. But after watching there was some good moments which was a pleasant surprise and more than expected.

It begins when Admiral Hardesty has a shipment of real eggs sent to Taratupa for the Easter Holidays. It will be up to Binghamton to protect the eggs until the Admiral can make the trip to the base for the pick-up.

In the meantime, the crew of the 73, mainly Gruber, steals the Admiral's eggs to make some moonshine eggnog for a profit. But what they don't know is that the native kids are all sadden to hear that there will be no Easter egg hunt due to there being no real eggs on the island. Now, with the kindness of McHale, the kids will have a happy Easter. But Binghamton's Easter will not be as joyous when the Admiral comes for his shipment of eggs that has been swindled.

There were some funny situations in this episode. When Binghamton steals two of the eggs in the early part of the show it was actually a humorous scene that was unexpected. Not to say that this was a great story- but it was a story where little was expected and the show delivered. When the final credits roll, the viewer is not disappointed but mildly surprised. Nice show.
