Baa Baa Black Sheep - Volume 1

 Baa Baa Black Sheep - Volume 1  (DVD)

  Review by Suzanne 8/11/05

I remember when this show first came on the air because I had a good friend who loved it. I never watched it back then.  However, I did watch it later in reruns.  For some reason they called it "Black Sheep Squadron" instead. I enjoyed watching it quite a bit.

I have always loved Robert Conrad, the star, since his early days on "Wild Wild West".  His acting style is minimalist (about the opposite of William Shatner), but I always loved him because he was so handsome and strong.

This show reminds me a bit of Hogan's Heroes, but less funny.  It is ostensibly a drama, but it has many lighter moments and a lot of action.  Conrad stars as Major Greg "Pappy Boyington", who is the squadron-leader of a group of fighter pilots stationed on an island in the Pacific, during World War II.  Boyington was a real person and this show is based on his adventures.  The camaraderie of the group is fun to watch.  It is a very pleasant show, not too heavy, but fun to watch.  The actors are very likable.

The show was created by Stephen J. Cannell, who made a lot of action shows in the 70's and 80's, including "Rockford Files", "the A-Team", and "21 Jump Street".  Like those shows, it is a light, fun, show with lots of action and male bonding.
