A surprising twist to an old plot- Nice script
16 October 2014 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

There is a big show coming to the island and the lead singers are three gorgeous ladies called the Tyler Sisters. McHale's crew is already preparing to meet the three ladies but Binghamton has another plan for them. He has arranged the Admiral to fly out and be his guest at the show and then have an after show dinner with the ladies. It looks like McHale and his crew are out of luck.

But when a radio message comes in that the aircraft carrying the ladies was forced down on a nearby island, it is all McHale needs to plan some quality time with the vixens. But things do not go as planned.

This was a surprising script as the situation did not go as planned for the crew or the viewer. It was a nice twist to an old predictable plot that was entertaining to say the least. Just when you thought the plot was going to play out like so many other stale shows, the writers threw in a surprise to make the viewer interested. Maybe the best show so far in this early episode of season one.
