These are the adventures of the misfit crew of PT-73 during World War II. They're one of the best fighting crews in the Navy, but break regulations when it suits them. Their commander, Lieutenant Commander McHale, is at times as roguish as his crew, but he puts his foot down when things go too far. They are assigned an Executive Officer, Ensign Parker, who is by-the-book, but too much of a klutz to command too much respect. They have a house-boy Fuji, who deserted the Japanese Navy, who wears a POW outfit, just in case he's caught, so he won't be shot at. Their nemesis is Captain Binghamton and his aide Lieutenant Carpenter. They're initially stationed in the South Pacific, but moved to Italy in the last season.Written by
I love McHales Navy. It is fun, witty and just great to watch. The scenery, locations, photography and sets are always striking and the music is great. I also love the hilarious writing and clever jokes, and the stories never cease to engage. The direction is also crisp, the episodes go at a cracking pace and it is just one of those comedy series that makes you happy every time. The cast should be thanked a lot too, Ernest Borgnine and Tim Conway are brilliant as always, as is Joe Flynn.
All in all, a very engaging, very warm and very funny series with a talented cast. To cut a long story short, wonderful. 10/10 Bethany Cox
