Last month’s poll wasn’t very popular, only receiving only 118 votes. It asked readers “Who was the better foil for Hawkeye and Trapper/B.J.?” For a while, the results were evenly split but in the end Frank squeaked out a win. Here are the full results:
Frank (53%, 62 Votes)Charles (47%, 56 Votes)
This was a tough one for me. I ultimately voted Charles because he was on equal footing with Hawkeye and B.J. while Frank was always out of his league against Hawkeye and Trapper and to a lesser extent Hawkeye and B.J. So Charles was definitely the better foil. I doubt very much the show would have been as amusing had Hawkeye and Trapper gone up against Charles.

This month’s poll asks “Do you own any books about M*A*S*H?” and the answers are either yes or no.
