    I'd make pertinent jokes, but I haven't seen an Andy Griffith rerun since I was a kid.

    38 years with the same guy? Guess that's how he avoided the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s.

    He's gay? That's a shock.

    It really does reflect how society felt about the military at that time..
    Between him and Captain Binghamton, they weren't shown in the highest esteem..

    I can't remember offhand, were there any prime time serials back then that shit on the army too?
    By the time they got around to MASH, they were at least showing some respect..

    Combat! was on at the same time as Gomer Pyle and actually ran for twice as long as GP was very pro-military from what I remember of seeing some reruns with my dad as a kid.

    Have you even seen an episode of MASH? The whole idea of the movie and tv show were to shit on the Army.

    Most of them, and mostly first-run. I never really re-watched them in syndication.
    Maybe time has changed some of my perception.
    I thought they shit on the war and the bureaucracy, but didn't portray the
    characters all as one dimensional buffoons. At least, not all of them.

    And, I meant it as an evolutionary step, not a complete change from only a decade
    away from Gomer.

    Gomer made our Marines look as inept as Hogan's Heroes made the Nazis.

    Wait, I'm confused. I thought Gomer Pyle USMC was supposed to be a comedy?

    It was, but try pitching that model now to a producer.
    Wouldn't have a chance.
    That's the change in sentiment I was trying to compare.

    No big deal, I'll get it back on topic...

    So, which lemon party guy should Gomer's face be photoshopped on to?
    Probably the one in the back, it almost looks like him anyways..

    That's fair. It was much harder on the military in a serious sense, but the characters weren't buffoons.

    I always thought Gomer Pyle was more like Beetle Bailey. But I've actually never seen an episode. Though I have seen every episode of MASH. And the first three seasons were the best. Also Blake and Trapper John were better than Potter and BJ.

    Let me know if you find it anywhere, my dad's been bugging me to track it down for him. He's pissed it's not on netflix instant, I think I have until he gets through all 130 episodes of Mission: Impossible until he asks me again.

    There's this channel I get in Chicago called ME-TV. I'm not sure if it's elsewhere in the country, but it might be. Anyway, they show Combat at 2 in the morning every weekday.

    EDIT:

    ME-TV is in both Los Angeles and New York City/Long Island and Combat airs at from 3:00-3:30 every weekday. I think you said you were from Jersey, but I don't know where so I couldn't enter in Zip Code. You can check availability at http://metvnetwork.com

    The actual DVDs are on Netflix. Make sure you tell him the shiny silver discs don't go on the Victrola.

    Yeah we have me-tv here in va too. I have it on constantly and watch nothing else. I am addicted to westerns. The rifleman, gun smoke, bonanza, and the big valley.
