Re: (07x24) 171 - A Night at Rosie's

Considering how quickly they wrote this episode, and the somewhat simplistic nature of the story, this was a very enjoyable episode overall IMO. I really liked seeing the different antics they came up with, including forming their own "country" in Rosie's, tying up Charles and sitting on him (off ca...

Re: (07x23) 170 - Preventive Medicine

I know this episode's kind of controversial, and it's easy to see why someone wouldn't care for it. Besides the fact that it doesn't exactly paint Hawkeye in the best light, it's definitely not a perfect episode by any means. Most notably, the writing for the general may have been a bit forced, and ...

Re: (07x22) 169 - Rally 'Round the Flagg, Boys

I'm glad they decided to make this one. Not only was it a very fitting ending for the character IMO, it also did a good job of showing why he'd be out of place on the show now. Not just because of the shift in tone, but because of the changes in characters. These characters are much more about his b...

Re: (07x21) 168 - C*A*V*E

I really like this episode, though I'll admit that I may be a bit biased. I just really like episodes where the doctors have to take care of patients in harsher conditions due to the war. And while it may not have been one of the best examples of that type of episode, I did think it had a few really...

Re: (07x20) 167 - Hot Lips is Back in Town

A good episode for Margaret. I liked her dumbfounded reaction to finding out she was divorced, and how she then turned that around to her professionalism in the military. And one thing I liked about this story is that, as strict as she was with some of the nurses, it never really got overbearing. It...

Re: (07x19) 166 - The Young and the Restless

As a fan of Potter, and especially Charles... I have to say I'm not really fond of this one. The idea of solid enough, but the execution felt off. I'm not sure if it was the writing or the acting (I do love both actors, but they did have their weaker moments on the show), or a mixture of both, but I...

Re: (07x18) 165 - The Price

I think all three stories had great moments. The highlight was the scene where Potter let the Korean soldier keep Sophie, which was strengthened by Harry Morgan's great acting. I also liked Charles tricking the soldiers into leaving the Swamp without realizing it was Ham in the bed. And there were a...

Re: (07x17) 164 - Inga

The best way I can think to explain how I feel about this episode is that the whole was weaker than its parts. There were some truly good moments in this episode. I loved Hawkeye's speech in the shower, Klinger's reaction to hearing about sex changes, Charles making an ass of himself when talking ab...

Re: (07x16) 163 - B.J. Papa San

I kind of see this as BJ's version of "In Love And War," where he gets attached to a group of natives, only to have that be taken away from him due to the war. It's a bit inconsistent at times, but I did enjoy this episode overall, and Mike Farrell's performance had a lot to do with that. My least f...

Re: (07x15) 162 - Dear Sis

I agree, this was a great episode for Father Mulcahy, as it explored his role within the camp. I loved how he struggled with his insecurities as he felt useless, and how the others helped him see his worth. My favorite moments were Charles' reaction to his present (with a brilliant performance from ...

Re: (07x14) 161 - An Eye for a Tooth

I loved the story with the pranks. I can easily see why some people may feel like it was out of character for Charles, and maybe it was, but I think it was a great episode for him, even within this season, when he really had a lot of chances to shine. One of the things I loved about his character wa...

Re: (07x13) 160 - Out of Gas

Another good episode. I will say, I liked the second half of the episode more than the first. There were some good parts in the first half, like the poker game (Charles must have caught on to his own tell since "The Merchant of Korea"), and Potter and Margaret chewing out Zale for trading the Sodium...

Re: (07x12) 159 - Dear Comrade

I really liked this twist on the "Dear" episode, showing the characters through the eyes of a North Korean. It allowed them to give interesting look at the characters, and their way of life. I especially liked how "soft" he saw them (like when they complained about food), how unknowledgeable they we...

Re: (07x11) 158 - Point of View

Great episode. Obviously the thing that stands out most is the visual aspect, which was very impressive especially considering the era. But what really helps sell the episode beyond just the gimmick is the way that gimmick is used to present these characters in a different light. In that sense, I se...

Re: (07x10) 157 - Baby, it's Cold Outside

This episode combined two types of episodes that were used quite a lot throughout the series: comedic episodes where somebody receives something that everyone's jealous of, and more tense/dramatic stories where they have to deal with wounded under harsher conditions than usual. While I can see how s...
