Heroic, noble Roger Smith makes Mister Roberts great
26 December 2011 | by russedavSee all my reviews

While overall the series isn't so great, contrary to the narrow-minded opinions of some, Roger Smith rather really makes the show, and was anything but bland for those who live in the real world instead of Hollywood delusion; he carries it well in a noble way unknown in our day where sleaze and stupidity reign, why there are so many remakes that exhibit the sad extent of the gross inability of today's demented narcissist fascist perverts to make watchable films with only rare exceptions. So casually and foolishly to label him as "bland" is merely to demonstrate appalling lack of appreciation for his great and heroic soul and talents, first of all as a man, that inevitably spills over into his noble character, Doug Roberts; one of the things I love so much about this man is how I find him merely being his own heroic self rather than merely acting a part, and those of us who know the manly battles he's fought in his own life love him so for it, a truly great man by any realistic standard; his devotion with sole custody to his three children from his first marriage, as well as his devotion to his second marriage of 40+ years to Ann-Margret in spite of the great struggles both had says more than words ever could. The silly reviewer who criticized the show for not being realistic enough needs to get a life, for, being a situation comedy, it never intended to be realistic and surely it's creators didn't imagine anyone would be foolish enough to expect it to be!
