  • Gomer attempts to pass the obstacle course for Sqt.Carter.

    The first episode starts with Gomer giving details to the barber how he wants his haircut like Floyd the barber use to do it, only to get a marine haircut instead. Sqt. Carter gets frustrated by Gomer's responses, like complimenting him on his voice. Gomer declares that he likes Sqt. Carter, and asks him "Do you like me"? Sqt. Carter's expression on his face tells it all. Gomer has diffuculty with The obstacle course, much to the aggrevation of Sqt.Carter. Eager to please his Sqt., Gomer practices at night to master the course. This episode has good exchanges between Gomer and Sqt.Carter, and does well to establish their relationship in the beggining. I rate this as a good episode, with plenty better to come.
