Rat Patrol was great! I wish they still had it on reruns.
I liked Tour of Duty, JAG was good the first couple of seasons, Major Dad was a cool comedy, we used to watch that in the sqaud bay all the time.

Baa Baa Blacksheep! That aviation mechanic Sgt Mecklin was the coolest.

Pensicola. Wings of Gold. JAG and the great Hogans Heros

Victory at Sea was a series but not a sit-com. That is my all time favorite because of content and musical score.
I used to chuckle at my Aunt when she would say, in disgust, "The Germans weren't that dumb!", as eveyone was watching Hogan's Heroes.
Currently, NCIS, seems to pretty much above board entertainment.
Rat Patrol, McHale's Navy, and of course the classic F Troop.

AND A "BLAST FROM THE PAST"...IN THE 60'S THERE WAS A SHOW CALLED "THE LIEUTENANT" about a Marine officer.

Even though it was the Army.....you have to admit that MASH was a great show.
