Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale (Ernest Borgnine), Ensign Parker (Tim Conway) and the rest of the oddball crew of PT-73 get onboard for one more season of ship-tipping adventures.
Season 4 finds McHale and company relocated halfway around the world, as they have been transferred off Taratupa Island to an American Naval base in Voltafiore, Italy. Between the scheming Mayor Mario Lugatto (Jay Novello) and Army Colonel Douglas Harrigan (Henry Beckman), reassignment isn t all it s cracked up to be, and with Captain Binghamton (Joe Flynn) out for blood, McHale has his hands full.
From 1962 through 1966, McHale s Navy was a must-see staple of ABC Television. This fourth season marked the end of what has since become one of the true classics of television comedy and includes a hilarious guest appearance from Don Knotts.

I think I enjoyed the first three seasons much more than I did the last (season four), where McHale and company (including Fuji), were relocated to Voltafiore, Italy... I suppose I simply enjoyed the interaction with the crew members in those seasons considerably more than this last season.
For whatever the reason, I simply didn't warm up to the roles of Henry Beckman (as an Army Colonel) or Jay Novello (as the town mayor) in season four and would have been content had everyone simply remained on Taratupa Island... Guess I simply didn't care much for moving everyone to Italy.
I went with only four stars on this season but would definitely give a high five for the other three. Overall I'm happy with having purchased all four seasons. No problems whatsoever with playback, video or audio quality. Shout did a great job.
I also like that they use thin profile cases so this is only a little more than an inch thick.
AS tot he stories, the move from Tarratupa to Italy wasn't one of the best things they might have done, but the change or scenery gave the show more life. The Italian accents from a few actors can been a bit over the top, but it is all just in good fun.
This was always my favorite show as a kid growing up and seeing it again after all these years has been alot of fun. It holds up well too. Good nostalgic memories, good laughs, and good clean fun for the whole family. Young and old alike can sit down together and enjoy this show.
As others on here have stated the only disappointment for me was the two McHale's Navy feature films were not a part of this final set as a bonus feature. I too had hoped they would be. When the entire series is released in one boxed set it would be nice if they could include them as well. Just to make it all complete.
On a more personal note it's nice that Ernest Borgnine, now in his 90's and the oldest living recipient of The Oscar award, has lived to see his show successfully released and preserved for future generations to enjoy. God bless him and Tim Conway and the rest of the crew who've entertained us and made us laugh all these years.
