Yeah, that show was a sitcom training ground. Gavin McLeod was in it & so was another guy (whose name escapes me) who went on to be a character actor in a bunch of TV sitcoms.
Borgnine was really much better as a dramatic actor, I thought, but McHale's Navy was fun to watch, mostly for the physical comedy.
