Re: (08x13) 186 - Captain's Outrageous

A pretty enjoyable episode IMO. The Mulcahy story seemed like a kind of mixture two season 7 episodes: "An Eye for a Tooth" (Mulcahy wanting to be promoted) and "Dear Sis" (letting something affect him so much that he gets more aggressive - though this time he doesn't punch someone - and having it e...

Re: (08x12) 185 - Dear Uncle Abdul

I believe I've seen this episode three times. The first time was on TV, long before I got this season on DVD. And I absolutely hated this episode then. It was easily my least favorite episode I had seen of the series (though at the time, there were pretty decent number of episodes I hadn't seen yet)...

Re: (08x11) 184 - Life Time

I love how this show handled its experimental episode like this. These types of episodes usually manage to make the most of of the unique aspects, while giving great character moments as well, and that was definitely true for this episode. Beyond the race-against-the-clock aspect of the episode, I l...

Re: (08x10) 183 - The Yalu Brick Road

A pretty fun episode for the most part, though not one of the greatest IMO. I did like the dynamic between Hawkeye, BJ, and the Korean soldier, as well as Hawkeye continually getting on BJ's case for getting them lost (my favorite being when Hawkeye said not to get lost while sitting down). Charles ...

Re: (08x09) 182 - Mr. and Mrs. Who?

I don't think I really cared too much for this episode in the past. I think part of that is because of how strange it was to see (well, mostly hear about) Charles being so drunk without reason. That being said, I liked this one a lot more this time. It was just so much fun seeing Hawkeye, BJ, and Ch...

Re: (08x08) 181 - Private Finance

I didn't really care for this one overall. I will say that the start of Klinger's story was pretty good, as he stood up to the soldier, and offered the girl money. That actually really strengthened his character IMO. But the rest of his story wasn't really that great. I especially dislike the fact t...

Re: (08x07) 180 - Nurse Doctor

Not one of the better Mulcahy episodes IMO. There were a few parts of the episode I did like, such as Hawkeye's reaction to the situation, Potter's lecture to Hawkeye, Mulcahy and Margaret, and a few decent moments in the side story, but for the most part it fell kind of flat IMO. I do like the idea...

Re: (08x06) 179 - Period of Adjustment

I actually really liked this one. For one thing, I think it's one of the better "BJ misses his family" episodes, playing on the departure of Radar (and even Trapper) to emphasize the point. I can understand how some people may feel like Mike Farrell was over-acting during BJ's breakdown in Potter's ...

Re: (08x05) 178 - Good-bye, Radar, Part 2

These episodes are kind of strange to me for the same reasons some people don't really care for it as much as they could. Mostly, Gary Burghoff's growing resentment towards having to come on the show (he was supposed to leave at the end of season 7), and how that was projected through Radar. This wo...

Re: (07x26) 173 - The Party

It's mostly 3 episodes a day, with the occasional 4, and sometimes skipping days if I get too busy. I don't do this every summer. It has actually been a few years since I last watched the series, and I thought I'd do my second full-series rewatch of the show. It will be interesting to see how I feel...

Re: (08x03) 176 - Guerilla My Dreams

I actually liked this one a lot. I've said before that I liked episodes like "Commander Pierce" and "Preventative Medicine," where the writers actually took a critical look at Hawkeye and the types of actions he's taken throughout the series, and I'd say this is right along those lines. I'd say it's...

Re: (08x02) 175 - Are You Now, Margaret

I like the idea behind this episode, and did think there were some good parts to it, such as some of the interviews, everyone sticking up for Margaret, and especially the scene in Margaret's tent where they blackmail him. However, I think the episode could have been handled a lot better overall.

Re: (08x01) 174 - Too Many Cooks

A mostly enjoyable, though a bit unremarkable episode. I did like the reactions to his cooking, even having Charles being impressed (though I imagine that's largely because of how long he's been eating army food). I do agree that Potter's story didn't really do much for me, since they've done someth...

Re: (07x26) 173 - The Party

Other than the plot holes (and there definitely were some), I'd say the biggest potential issue with this episode was the chaotic pacing, stemming from trying to pack so much into it. On top of having the preparations for the party, there was also the bug out and BJ's worry for his patient. But in a...

Re: (07x25) 172 - Ain't Love Grand

There were some good parts in this episode. I liked the start, where everyone got on each other's nerves in the Swamp. I also thought it was interesting seeing Charles trying to fool himself into seeing Sooni as a high class lady, as it got more and more difficult to keep up those appearances. And I...
