McHale and his crew are caught on camera in a tight situation.
17 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

At the beginning of the episode, the crew of the 73 are out delivering some moonshine but learn that they are being under-priced by a group of Air-corp men that have started their own little profit making scheme. It seems that the 73 crew is out of business in the hooch making game.

Meanwhile, Binghamton is obsessed with trying to find something on McHale and his crew. When he learns about a machine making moonshine in an old abandoned ammo shack, the Captain just knows that it has to be McHale's crew. So he waits outside and finds out that the still actually belongs to the Air-corp men. Binghamton is so unhappy that it was not McHale that he tricks McHale and his crew to come to the shack. When they go inside, Binghamton takes a picture of them holding bottles near the still. Now Binghamton calls fleet legal officer, Captain Shepard, and demands that he come down to Taratupa so that they can court-martial the entire crew. McHale is going to have to come up with a way of getting that picture before Captain Shepard arrives.

Even though this was a routine script the comedy played out well on the screen. At first did not understand why the script call on the crew of the 73 to dress up like 1930 type gangster guys but at the end it all came together for a nice show. Joe Flynn did a nice job with his character which made the story more fun and believable as the action went ahead. Another good show from the cast.
