Bad luck follows Binghamton.
20 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, the Mayor has opened up a new business adventure in the form of a Good Luck water fountain in the center of town. It seems the Mayor gets people to make a wish and then in the evening empties the fountain of the coins. Binghamton sees the fountain and immediately shuts the Good Luck water down.

Binghamton is going to a conference and will be gone a few days. McHale wants to help Ensign Parker who is feeling low. So with Binghamton gone, McHale gets the Mayor to reopen the fountain. Parker can wish for a girl.

But when Binghamton returns after the conference is canceled, he arrest the Mayor and places him in jail. In order to help the Mayor, McHale thinks of a plan where Binghamton will have bad luck and it will all be because he shut the fountain down. If bad things start happening to Binghamton then he just might release the Mayor and reopen the fountain.

This was another nice script as there are a few humorous line throughout the program. Nothing really stood out as memorable but it did hold the viewer's attention to the very end. Another fine acting job by the cast. Nice watch.
