The First Feminime Military Sitcom
23 September 2012 | by sam-468-676831See all my reviews

from Mchale's Navy producer and creator Edward Montange, Broadside is the first Military sitcom with women as the central characters, which set it apart from most of it's competitors (like Ensign O'Toole and it's originator). the show has an interesting cast, which included a pre-Bewtiched Dick Sargent and a post-Real McCoys Kathleen Nolan. Character Actor Edward Arnold plays a part that is to an extent, a copy of Joe Flynn's Captain Bimgamton but he still manages to carry his own weight, and he makes a good foil for the main cast members.

Unfortunately, the show was scheduled against ratings giant the Ed Sullivan Show, which sealed the show's fate. do I think it should have lasted longer? yes but does it have a chance of a syndicated Revival? it probably does on a third party Retro Cable Network, in fact I recently found a cheap DVD of the show on amazon containing 29 out of the 32 episodes of the show, In which I'll probably buy in the near future. There are also a couple episodes on youtube (and that's how I saw the show).
