Retired Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale (Tom Arnold) spends his days puttering around the Caribbean in the old PT-73 selling homebrew, ice cream, and swimsuit calendars. He's brought out of retirement when his old nemesis turned the second best terrorist in the world, Major Vladakov (Tim Curry), takes over the island of San Moreno and starts building a nuclear launch silo on it. With help from his old crew and hindrances from Captain Wallace B. Binghampton (Dean Stockwell), who sank a cruise liner a while back, McHale tries to put Vladakov out of business.Written by

I know most people hate McHale's navy, but I really don't care. I thought it was pretty funny. Tim Curry was really good as the villain, Vladikov (the #2 best terrorist in the world). Bruce Campbell is pretty good. David Allen Grier was, as usual, great as Ens. Charles T. Parker.
I'd never seen the original series, but I'm glad that they had Ernest Borgnine, the original McHale, as Cobra.
And, last, but DEFFINITELY not least, Tom Arnold. I used to watch Roseanne, and always liked his obnoxious humor. It's even better in McHale's Navy. He's got some unique style, that guy.
Well, I've chatted long enough.
PS. Tim Curry and Tom Arnold had both been in an episode of Roseanne.
