What a Tangled Web We Weave!
6 May 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Potter is excited to find that his son-in-law is visiting the camp (he is a salesman, sent to Tokyo). However, the Colonel finds that this young man has had a tryst with a woman in a hotel before arriving in the camp. The issue is what to do. Does he act to blow up the marriage and save his daughter from future abuse, or let it go? The second is that Charles has begun to snore so severely that his tentmates aren't getting any sleep. Of course, being the snobbish windbag he is, he denies that he even snores, because those of his pedigree would be made to appear common. There is a hilarious scene in Mulcahy's tent as he tries to see himself as a victim in all this. There is a third, much more serious issue, having to do with one of B.J.'s patients who is in danger of losing his leg. It contrasts the lesser issues previously portrayed.
