Re: Season Ten General Discussion

I'll written more on this on the fav episodes thread BDOR but I've got to side with Richb40 here... I thought the last few seasons of Mash were very strong despite a few clunkers and it's hard to see exactly what it is that you don't like. Whilst there are certainly a few down or nothing episodes th...

(05x07) 104 – The Abduction of Margaret Houlihan

This is something of a guilty pleasure episode for me. It goes for funny and credit where credit is due, it is very funny but overall the episode lacks substance and is very on the nose. I think the problem with this episode is that a) there is no serious storyline to balance the laughs, or add dram...

Re: (04x15) 087 - Mail Call Again

I've always been miffed by this perception that Margaret was a woman of 'virtue' as it was put. Whilst I don't question her integrity, Houlihan on this show is an absolute emotional wreck and more than any other character on the show lets her emotions compromise the MASH... both the health of the pa...

Re: (04x07) 079 - The Bus

This is a strange little episode that not only veers away from the usual MASH structure of diverging into multiple plot points but in doing so, it also stops short of identifying a clear purpose or major story line. A usual MASH episode has a clear purpose. It either tells an interesting and often m...

(11x15) 255 - As Time Goes By

The final standalone episode before the big finale is a funny old episode... it's one that somehow manages to pay the current main cast members a tribute, honour some of those before them, change up the usual episode structure, and be both funny and touching at the same time. This is one of the rare...

(11x13) 253 - Friends and Enemies

This is a solid episode late in the series, which to be honest I quite like in nearly every facet but it just has a few knit picking points that stop it from rating amongst the very best episodes. There's not really a scene that I don't like in it though, so it really is above average. In a nutshell...

Re: What Episode is This From?

Nothing comes to mind...

Perhaps in the 2 part episode when the USO girls come to Mash? Showtime?

Re: (01x09) 009 - Henry, Please Come Home

Hey BDR In regards to ur point about Frank taking over to the surprise of the other surgeons... I wonder if they thought that perhaps whilst Henry was in charge Frank stepped up for when he was away, but that a higher ranking Colon would be assigned the 4077th in the event that Henry was permanently...

Re: (03x13) 061 - Mad Dogs and Servicemen

Thanks for the reply CC, I think what ppl forget when discussing Trapper/Blake etc is that most TV shows even now usually take a little while to find their feet and MASH was no exception. What stands out to me watching those early seasons is that the producers really wanted the tone mirror that of t...

Portrayal of Turkish Soldiers

One thing I always found fascinating was the references they made/about the Turks in MASH and given the amount of thought that generally went into the show, I often wonder about what/whether there was a message or theme there. The examples that come to mind... - The crazy Turk in 'Full Rich Day'... ...

Re: (03x13) 061 - Mad Dogs and Servicemen

Without a shadow of a doubt one of the best episodes of the series and given that came along in season 3 w/o any major plot points, a real hidden gem at that. What stands out about this episode is that in addition to two solid plot lines... the main plot being the wounded soldier and the b-line bein...

Re: (07x01) 148 - Commander Pierce

This is an episode that is a fantastic idea and I really want to love it but unfortunately, it wasn't executed well enough with several plot holes bringing back down to an average grading. The premise, Potter enters the Swamp in the middle of the night to announce that he's off to Seoul (or wherever...

Re: Least Favorite Episodes

Hi all, new to this forum and found this to be a fascinating read... A few interesting themes have emerged for mine: It seems to me that a few forumites don't like episodes that either are intentionally not funny, or don't portray their favourite characters in a positive light or happy outcome. For ...

Re: (04x19) 091 - Hawkeye

Personally, I think that this is one episode that is unfairly maligned. Don't get me wrong, it's not a favourite of mine by any means, but I think when reviewing it, people get too heavily drawn into context... which is poorly understood. One of the very common criticisms I hear about this is how eg...
