Steve, it's quite possible that I'm the only one here who enjoys the basic comedy of that show. As I understand he was a mechanic in WWII and towards the end of the war transferred to the entertainment service. Lived alone but asked several women to marry him. It didn't happen and he lived alone till his death.

I guess I like the show because it's simple, direct, farce like, and a snapshot of the times. Apparently a good number of ladies on the show got there start there too.

By the way, my wife can't stand the show, she calls it stupid!
