Major Dad is an American sitcom television series created by Richard C. Okie and John G. Stephens, developed by Earl Pomerantz, that originally ran from 17 September 1989 to 17 May 1993 on CBS.
It starred Gerald McRaney as Major John D. MacGillis and Shanna Reed as his wife Polly. The cast also includes Beverly Archer, Matt Mulhern, Jon Cypher, Marisa Ryan, Nicole Dubuc, and Chelsea Hertford.
Robin’s new boyfriend is the son of another Marine officer. However, when the boy gets cut and Mac offers to dress the gash, he sees strange marks which lend evidence of abuse. The Major sees the boy’s mother acts like a Stepford wife, so he asks Polly’s help in getting her to open up. In a subplot, Lieutenant Holowachuk tries to fill his basketball team but finds complications when General Craig wants to play – and no one wants to guard him because he is the general.
Gerald McRaney and Nicole Dubuc, out-of-character, tell families about the rough nature of the episode in getting younger viewers to understand.
