Re: If you were a castaway on a desert Island what 6 M.A.S.H characters would you want with you and why?

B.J.. Trapper, Potter, Radar, Margaret, and Klinger. Each character has a specific skill, talent, and ability to survive and cope with tough situations. They are smart, capable, focused, and have a fundamental faith. Potter and Margaret would organize things using their military training/common sens...

Yes, I'd still have Frank leave in Season 5 just with a regular discharge. Charles brought new opportunities for stories along with his being a good person underneath the snobbish behavior.

Re: If you were a writer for the TV series M.A.S.H how would you of changed it?

Kept the series a comedy with undertones of drama. The show worked best when their was a balance with that also Frank staying the way he was in Seasons 1 thru 3. Henry getting home safely to his family in Illinois. Hawkeye leaving instead of Trapper. I think Trapper had more complexity that needed t...

Re: (08x23) 196 - War Co-Respondant

An episode that comes across as forced and unnatural. If B.J. were going to stumble/be tempted again it seems that one of the nurses he works with on a regular basis is the natural choice. I like a lot of Season 8 but not this episode. Aggie did come across as a drifter who did not want romantic att...

Re: M*A*S*H Home Towns

Thanks Big Daddy O'Reilly. It must've been another nurse i heard being called Sarah. Peggy would've been short for Margaret or Marjorie.

Re: M*A*S*H Home Towns

I believe it was Lt. Sarah Bigelow. One of the nurses called her Sarah but don't recall the episode.

Re: Who do you like more.....

Trapper was kind, smart, funny, skilled as a surgeon, a prankster who knew where to draw the line, never apologized for this behavior and stood his ground without being self righteous. However, if he had stayed on i could see that changing to angry over missing out on his children's lives and yes mi...

Re: Death of Henry Blake

Impact. Henry's death represented that war is horrific and devastating. It takes away good people and that no one is safe when they are in the middle of it.

Re: Highest quality video source

I don't know a lot about master prints/transferring/digital restoration etc.. However, there was a soap opera on ABC that was originally taped in color, but the color episodes were not handled properly and lost, the only copies were black and white back ups that were in terrible condition. The back ...

Re: (03x07) 055 - Check-Up

Trapper and Hawkeye got their goodbye in this episode and both actors shined in it. Hawk should have considered it the goodbye he needed instead of going on about not getting one when Trapper actually went home for real. Wayne got the chance to present his great acting skills in this episode handlin...

Re: Who do you like more.....

I agree that Wayne and Alan had good chemistry. Alan and Mike didn't really connect until Season 5 and it progressed very well through the years.

Re: Who do you like more.....

B.J.- he was a better friend to Hawkeye. The relationship dynamic was more significant between the two men. Trapper was just a buddy to Hawk while B.J. was a best friend. Charles- a skilled surgeon who cared about his patients and underneath the self involved exterior he had a heart of gold. Frank w...
