McHale’s Navy Season 2 (1963-1964) – By Jason S. Lockard

McHale’s Wacky troops are back for a second season and the Navy has never been more fun. Thanks to Madman Entertainment I was able to relive a simpler time and you can too.

Some notable episodes that stand out are; ‘The Binghamton Murder Plot’ Paranoia runs high when Binghamton is convinced the crew of PT-73 is out to kill him. ‘My Ensign, The Lawyer’ Tinker is caught red-handed with the Captain’s missing printing press and immediately scheduled for court-martial. All seems lost until Ensign Parker takes his case. ‘A Medal for Parker’ Ensign Parker’s girlfriend Mary has left him for an ace fighter pilot. To get her back, the crew plants a made-up story of his heroism in her local paper and gets Parker a medal for bravery. ‘Carpenter in Command’ Captain Binghamton breaks his leg and leaves Elroy Carpenter in charge of the base. The normally reticent lieutenant lets the power go to his head and the boys are forced top humble him.

This 5 DVD collection includes all 36 full unedited episodes and and these episodes look pretty good considering that these episodes are fifty years old. The bonus features include; all new interviews with Ernest Borgnine and Tim Conway. This is just a really good release.

If you own season one, you know you have to have season 2! If you can view region 4 DVDs by all means pick up a copy of Madman Entertainment’s McHale’s Navy Season 2 and take a trip to the old navy days. Visit www.madman.com.au and find out how you can get a copy today.
