Baa Baa Black Sheep (1976) Set in the Pacific Theater during World War II, this two-fisted military series follows the exploits of the famed Black Sheep Squadron, a motley crew of maverick aerial aces led by Maj. Greg "Pappy" Boyington (Robert Conrad). Featuring plenty of testosterone-fueled, fast-paced action, the show also stars Simon Oakland, John Larroquette and Dana Elcar as Boyington's bureaucratic, no-nonsense commanding officer.
