  • Sgt.Bilko is a scheming con-man at little Fort Baxter,always working on a scam,sometimes against fellow Sgts.Ritzik and Grover,and occasionally on Colonel Hall,but hes always looking to make big score.

    This show is one of the great sit-coms of the 50s,along with I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners,though it is sometimes overlooked.It certainly hasnt been shown in syndication as much as the other 2,but it is still a truly brillant sit-com.There is such a simple premise,but Phil Silvers plays the con-man role to the hilt,and there are some great satirical jabs at Army life.And the show is still extremely funny.Silvers has some great supporting actors to play off of,including Harvey Lembeck,Allan Melvin,Billy Sands,Herbie Faye,Paul Ford,Joe E.Ross,and Maurice Gosfield as Doberman(one of the great faces in sit-com history!).Its about time this show gets its due.Creator Nat Hiken went on to create Car 54,Where are you?,another sadly overlooked sit-com.
