Nothing wrong with the story but series is in need of fresh scripts
20 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Binghamton is at it again, trying to catch McHale and his crew doing something illegal. This time General Bronson has issued orders that anyone caught profiteering will be brought up on charges. Binghamton is sneaking around the city trying to catch McHale and his men doing something that he can throw the book at them.

He gets his chance when the Mayor of the town, Lugatto, thinks up a scheme where he will have one of his broken down fishing boats get struck by the PT 73. In exchange for not reporting the incident, the Mayor asks McHale to catch a load of fish so that he can sell to the townspeople. McHale reluctantly agrees just to keep the crew and Ensign Parker out of trouble.

With the 73 made out to be a fishing vessel, McHale sets off to find the fish. Upon returning Binghamton is waiting for him on shore. Now he has the goods on McHale and will lead him to meet with the General. On the way a German sub starts bombing the town. McHale has to do something to save the town.

Even though there is nothing wrong with this program, it was just too routine. The exact same thing happened a few season ago when the boat was on Taraputa and now only the location is different. Even the same old antics by Parker is becoming increasingly stale. The series is in need of some fresh scripts and not the same rehashed stories that seem to be funneling through the system.
