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.?
Pilaf Moriyah 10 hours 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 10 hours 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 7 days 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.

Does anyone know what the difference
Is between a hippie gypsy..and
Beatnik????
ttk practicaljokerfan 6 days ago
Beatnik was a 40s thru mid 60s stereo type of the "Beat Generation"..the term introduced by Jack Kerouac in the late 40s to generalize the "anticonformist youth gathering in New York" at that time. They considered themselves artistic and intellectual and some used drugs as a means to get there.
Hippies were a product of the anti war movement of Vietnam.. The generation saw their friends being mauled or not coming back at all and the World they thought they knew in the 50s was shattered..so they became tuned in, political ..or turned off and dropped out..getting into the drug culture for escapism and advocating non violence. They saw their parents uptight ways as square and restricted.

Yes it was him..he was a gypsy..but a late 1960s version of a young gypsy, I believe..one more hip..
