Editor's Note
This 1960s sitcom/western followed the bold yet bumbling soldiers of F-Troop at Fort Courage in the days following the Civil War. Led by Captain Parmenter, a naive and wide-eyed soldier promoted to Captain due to an act of accidental heroism, the F-Troop cavalry does its incompetent best to survive in the lawless frontier. Making things easier, Parmenter's second-in-command, the crafty Sgt. O'Rourke, negotiates a deal with the local Hekawi Indians in which the cavalry and the Indians stage mock battles, but actually work together in a mutually profitable Indian souvenir business. The true threat to F-Troop comes from the warlike "Shug" Indians who periodically raid the fort. Bringing a bit of sexpot appeal to the show, sharp-shooting cowgirl Wrangler Jane strives to marry the innocent Captain Parmenter. A lighthearted send-up of the Western genre, F-TROOP, with its irreverent anti-authority attitude, showed its ties to the sixties counterculture, and acted as a precursor to the megahit M*A*S*H.

DVD Verdict 8 of 10
It only took a few words to get me hooked on F Troop. I had asked my father about the show, and he laughed and said "The cowboys are scared of the Indians, and the Indians are scared of the cowboys." Put in those terms, I couldn't look away. True enough, the soldiers at Fort Courage, commanded by Captain Parmenter (Ken Berry, The Andy Griffith Show), live in perpetual fear of an attack from the nearby Hekawi tribe. You see, the soldiers of F Troop aren't exactly our nation's finest. The lookout guard is legally blind, their bugle boy can't play, and even Captain Parmenter has lost battles to his own allergies...Sure, F Troop was predictable at times. If they pulled out the cannon, you knew the lookout tower was doomed. If Dobbs went to play his bugle, you knew it'd sound terrible. All the same, the jokes were done time and time again because they simply worked. - Aaron Bossig
