| Wackiest Ship -- TV series
As much as I liked the movie, I liked the TV series a lot better. Jack Warden really adds something that the movie lacked. I really do wish it was available on VHS or DVD (even in PAL format). I would love to see those episodes again. While "Echo" was apparently the name of the real ship, I liked the name "Kiwi". Somehow it was just a better fit. Also with the series, you got to know the crew better and watched the relationships develop. I can still see, in the first episode, Jack Warden (as Maj. Butcher) seeing the Kiwi for the first time, ordering his driver to turn around and go back to the office. The last episode was mindful of "The African Queen", when the Kiwi was used as a floating bomb to destroy an enemy ship.
