I loved sweet Gomer on TAGS, but just couldn't make friends with this show.

Why don't you like Gomer on Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.?
Moriyah 34 months ago
I don't know if I can put my finger on it. He seemed to have lost his sweetness somehow. Didn't care for "Sgt. Carter" at all. I felt he was not an authentic male, JMHO. Lou Ann Poovie was a gruesome caricature, IMHO. Loved Gomer Pyle on TAGS, not so much on GP,USMC.
Moriyah Pilaf 34 months ago
I get it. But I think I actually like him better on GPUSMC more than I like him on TAGS. And the reason why I say this is probably because he brances out, and gets involved more on the show. I also like that he's the main character, and I also like that he's in every episode as well.

9/16. What is a hippie?
Moriyah Swifteagle 34 months ago
A hippie is someone who wears colorful clothing, a fringe vest or boots, sometimes bell bottom pants, usually has long hair, and they bring peace to everyone.

At least they were portrayed that way on TV. Every show from 1966 to 1974 (end of Vietnam War) had a hippie episode. Then it was disco.

Yeah, although I do wish Gomer dressed up as one, though

What was your favorite part of it last night?
327053 Moriyah 34 months ago
How Gomer is always distracted from his work. Goofing off like always. Reminds me of me back in elementary 🤣
Moriyah 327053 34 months ago
I think I'm like that, too
