Re: (09x03) 201 - Cementing Relationships

A decent episode overall, with the cement story being the better of the two. The Margaret story did have a couple decent moments, but didn't really work for me as a whole. I didn't really care for the Italian soldier's character.

Re: (09x02) 200 - Letters

This was such a wonderful episode. I loved the way the letters and anecdotes brought out different emotions, from the comedy of Potter's free-throw attempt and Charles' first couple responses, to the heavier drama of Margaret getting close to the dying patient and Hawkeye beating himself up for havi...

Re: (09x01) 199 - The Best of Enemies

I thought this was a strong way to open the season. The main plot with Hawkeye may have been kind of similar to past episodes in a way, with him being held at gunpoint by a Korean soldier, but I loved the actual meat of that story, with Hawkeye helping to try and save the wounded boy's life, and get...

Re: (08x25) 198 - April Fools

A pretty great comedic episode to top off the season. And I think this one may actually be even better the second time. Of course, the pranks between the main characters are all great, but once you know that the visiting Colonel is part of a prank, his excessive put-downs of the doctors and Margaret...

Re: (08x24) 197 - Back Pay

A decent episode IMO. I am a bit surprised that Hawkeye didn't seem to be at all worried about getting a court martial, and even more surprised that Potter actually let him keep the jeep, but it was interesting seeing a different kind of push-back from Hawkeye in this episode. Charles' story was a b...

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

There were moments in this episode that were kind of ok for me. Most notably, I did kind of like Hawkeye's desperate attempts at getting Maggie's attention. And I thought BJ's explanation to Aggie at the end was pretty well done. But those semi-decent moments were few and far between. I wouldn't say...

Re: (08x22) 195 - Dreams

I know that a fair number of people don't really enjoy watching this one, largely because of how surreal and haunting a lot of the dreams are (i.e. Margaret with blood on her wedding dress), and I can understand that, especially for people who prefer the more comedic side of the show. But I absolute...

Re: (08x21) 194 - Goodbye, Cruel World

I kind of feel like this might have fit a bit better if it was one or two episodes after "Period of Adjustment," since Klinger is trying to settle into the reception room by making it into more of a home. That being said, I thought the episode was pretty good overall, but both stories could have use...

Re: (08x20) 193 - Lend a Hand

Out of all the episodes up to this point, I think this one has suffered the most from multiple viewings. I used to really like this one, but I don't really care that much for it now. I'm not even that bothered by the fact that Borelli was nothing like he was in "The Consultant" (though I do think it...

Re: (08x19) 192 - Morale Victory

There were a few moments from the Hawkeye/BJ story that I enjoyed, the most notable example probably being Igor's speech about getting yelled at for serving the food, but for that part of the episode kind of fell flat for me. Of course, it's the Charles story that really elevates this episode to bec...

Re: (08x18) 191 - Old Soldiers

With the nature of this episode, this could have easily seemed redundant, since we've already seen a few episodes with Potter being upset about something, and taking it out on others. However, I think they handled it very well with this episode. Part of the credit goes to the writers, both because t...

Re: (08x17) 190 - Heal Thyself

For me, this is an example of an episode which might have been hurt a bit by the half hour format, since Newsome's breakdown did seem a bit rushed. Even so, I still thought it was a very good episode overall, and definitely helped by Edward Hermann's acting. I especially loved the scene where they f...

Re: (08x16) 189 - Bottle Fatigue

For some reason my mind blended this episode together with "Bottom's Up." I knew that this was the episode where Hawkeye gave up drinking, but I thought it also had the story about the drunk nurse from "Bottom's Up," and didn't remember Charles' story being here. I thought it was a decent episode. H...

Re: (08x15) 188 - Yessir, That's Our Baby

This was a strange case for me, where I remembered the basic premise of the episode, but I didn't remember any specifics about it, and how it played out, so it was kind of like watching a new episode. And with that being the case, I was very pleasantly surprised. I'll be honest, the idea of using ki...

Re: (08x14) 187 - Stars and Stripes

A pretty enjoyable episode. I liked the flawed portrayals of Charles, BJ, and Hawkeye in this episode. Of course, it's expected for Charles to be pompous and self-absorbed, and it's understandable that BJ would want to fight back, so that Charles wouldn't hog all the glory, but I like how they took ...
