Re: (10x04) 222 - Rumor at the Top

An obvious throwback to the early years, both in terms of the story (which was similar to "Divided We Stand") and comedy style. I will say that some parts of it did feel a bit forced, but it was pretty enjoyable overall. I especially loved all the Klinger scenes, especially him flipping the tray. Al...

Re: (10x03) 221 - Identity Crisis

A pretty good episode. The main storyline with Mulcahy was pretty interesting. I am a bit surprised Mulcahy didn't think of saying that it would hurt his friend's family until he went to Potter for advice, but despite that it was pretty interesting seeing him struggle to get through to the soldier. ...

Re: (10x02) 220 - That's Show Biz, Part 2

I'm a bit torn about whether it's a good thing this was an hour, since it has so many stories with the main characters and the USO characters, or if it's a bad thing, because there are times when it feels a bit too padded out. I will say that, watching it this time, I did enjoy it more than I rememb...

Re: (09x20) 218 - The Life You Save

I think this is a good example of an episode's A and B stories working against each other, and kind of weakening the episode as a result (though that isn't to say I dislike the episode, because it's still one of the better ones IMO). For what it's worth, I did like the tray story for what it was. Th...

Re: (09x19) 217 - The Foresight Saga

I think the idea behind this episode, with a letter from Radar was pretty interesting, and that was the best part of the episode. I did like the reactions to them hearing about his "success," and then finding out it was a lie. The other stories weren't as interesting. I'd say the Korean kid was the ...

Re: (09x18) 216 - Blood Brothers

I know it sound strange, considering how effective some of MASH's dramatic moments are, but before my current rewatch of the series, where one or two episodes have hit me pretty hard, this was the only episode I actually remember causing me to cry. Of course some episodes came very close, but this e...

Re: (09x17) 215 - Bless You, Hawkeye

I'll admit, I'm a bit biased when it comes to this episode: I love Sidney's character, and whenever he not only appears, but actually takes the spotlight, it's pretty much a guarantee that I'll enjoy it. I also love when he has a lot of time playing off Hawkeye's character, since they have a great d...

Re: (09x16) 214 - The Red/White Blues

An ok episode, but there are definite issues with it, like Hawkeye (especially) and Margaret automatically assuming Klinger is faking it to get back at Potter, and some of the over-the-top attempts at keeping Potter's blood pressure low.

Re: (09x15) 213 - Bottoms Up

Probably my least favorite episode of the season. I think the idea of Margaret dealing with a nurse who was a friend with a drinking problem was an interesting basis for an episode, but I don't really think it worked for me. And the side-story with the pranks wasn't that great either, though I will ...

Re: (09x14) 212 - Oh, How We Danced

A very enjoyable episode. I like how Hawkeye goes to such great lengths to make BJ's anniversary better. The scene with the video from home was very touching, and it's great to once again see Peggy (with her first appearance being "Dreams), and seeing Erin for the first time. The story with Charles ...

Re: (09x13) 211 - No Laughing Matter

Another very strong episode. I thought both stories worked very well on their own, with Hawkeye's desperate need to tell jokes at every opportunity, and Charles' groveling so he could be transferred to Tokyo were both great. But I think that, outside of maybe "Blood Brothers," this was one of the be...

Re: (09x12) 210 - Depressing News

This was probably the second time I watched this episode, and it ended up being a lot more enjoyable than I remembered it being (not that I disliked it the first time, it just didn't stand out as much). I really liked the use of the tongue depressors: representing all the potential patients for howe...

Re: (09x11) 209 - No Sweat

I feel like I should like this one more than I do. I generally like the weather-based episodes a lot, and there is a basis for a solid episode here, but a lot of it didn't really click for me. I'm not even sure how to explain it, but it kind of felt off. Maybe intentionally so, given the heat and sl...

Re: (09x10) 208 - Operation Friendship

As much as I love Charles' character, and have grown to really like his relationship with Klinger, this one doesn't really work for me. There were some decent moments, mostly with Charles' reactions to dealing with Klinger taking advantage of Charles' gratitude, but for the most part I didn't really...

Re: (09x09) 207 - Taking the Fifth

As I've been rewatching these later seasons, I've actually grown to really like the growing trend of having Hawkeye's womanizing seem more desperate and over-the-top. For example, his scenes were my favorite part of "War Co-Respondent." Admittedly, I can see why some people may be put off by it, esp...
