Harrigan always has to be one better.
24 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Binghamton is trying to build a work-out area for the men to impress the General. But when Colonel Harrigan confiscates the equipment it looks like Harrigan is the one that is going to get on the General's good side. If only Binghamton can think of something else that the General would like. The General is an avid golfer.

A con-artist, Guido Panzin, happens to overhear that Binghamton is wanting to build a golf course. He tells the Captain that he has built golf courses all over the world. And for a small fee, $1000, will build him one that will really impress the General. Binghamton pays him the amount out of the Naval recreation fund.

It is only later, thanks to McHale, that Binghamton finds out that Guido is a con-artist. But by then Guido has already fled the area with the money. Binghamton makes a deal with McHale that if he will help him the crew can have leave. McHale places his plan into action which will include Harrigan and his need to always be better than Binghamton.

The story turned out to be a fresh and interesting tale. Joe Flynn was again excellent as he is easily outwitted by the con-artist and then equally efficient as the partner of McHale. Would have like to see the story play out just a bit more as the General is set to play some golf, but it was left to the viewer's imagination to end the show in a manner wished. Nice watch.
