Major Funny

Yesterday I discovered Major Dad is now on Hulu. I thought it was funny back when it aired, but boy did I miss a lot! Between not knowing anybody in the military at the time and being a very naive teenager, I missed half the jokes and certainly didn't realize the subtlety of some of the humor and underlying messages.

I spent 4 hours yesterday literally laughing aloud as I watched the first 10 episodes--my face hurt! Oh, it's not pitch-perfect, but it's definitely funny. And things like the mix of idealism and humor in this this episode (where the Major is trying to get his sergeant to re-up) make me love it all the more.
