Something funny going on the entire run of the show.
26 November 2014 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

In another surprisingly funny episodes, Binghamton has received word from the General to put a stop to all fraternizing with the local women. And since the General is getting harassed by the upper brass about the situation, he wants some people written up on the charge. Binghamton just knows that he can get some violators in the camp of PT 73.

Meanwhile, Ensign Parker has been going out every other day and the crew is getting suspicious. They follow him to a house where me meets a beautiful girl. So they think he is seeing the girl. But Parker is actually walking her dog.

It all comes to a head when Binghamton comes in to arrest Parker for violating the fraternizing rule. But when he finds out that Angelina is having babies, he knows he has him on more charges than one.

For such a silly plot, this episode turned out extremely well. The script was nice, the dialog was funny and the action of the actors were top-notch. This was a very simple story that turned out to be highly entertaining. From Binghamton and Carpenter running from a pack of dogs to the crew telling Parker that Angelia is no good for him, this was comical at every turn. As we approaching the end of the series, one would think that the shows were taper off. Instead, it appears the episodes are getting better.
