I wished this was good
2 March 2017 | by danccSee all my reviews

I watched the few episodes of this that were aired because I was a fan of war films. I was also a fan of MASH (the film & the series) & BARNEY MILLER & thought this was going to have the same feel of those Boy was I wrong. Even at the tender age of 16 I recognized it as crap. It was basically the lamest kind of work place sitcom, that just happened to be set in Saigon.

For a very long time I thought I had imagined this show. I had never met anyone else who remembered it. It wasn't until years after IMDb appeared that I realized I could look it up. Not only did I discover it actually existed, but that Laurence Fishburne & Bill Paxton were major characters. I seem to remember that the best part of the show was the opening credits. I'll have to check if someone as OCD as myself (but more computer savvy) has tracked it down & put it on YouTube.
