Re: (01x13) 013 - Edwina

After a couple of solid efforts in "I hate a mystery" and "Germ Warfare", "Edwina" is most definitely a step backward. The second act is downright cringeworthy at times with the silly bullfight music and the slapstick clumsiness.

Re: (01x07) 007 - Bananas, Crackers and Eggs

The whole "pretend to be sick/crazy so you can get a vacation" ploy has been done to death, ("The Honeymooners" did something similar way back when) and this particular episode adds its own twist. Until Hawkeye is placed under arrest, Things are pretty uninspired, the dog in the hospital bed, and Ha...

Re: (01x03) 003 - Requiem for a Lightweight

For me, M*A*S*H was wildly uneven during season one, it had a "Hogan's heroes redux" feel to it at times, Even some of Hawkeye's lines sound like Hogans. "Requiem"is one of those episodes, From Hawkeye conning Trapper into the ring, to Ugly John's instructions on ether, to Trapper's opponent falling...

Re: Who Is Your Least Favorite Character On Mash?

Yep definitely BJ,..Trapper seemed like a "regular guy", Where B.J>. was whiny, self absorbed, and like Hawkeye, self righteous.. I didn't have as much of a problem with Klinger at first, I liked the idea of a scheming "street guy", he was used sparingly, and for comic relief...as time went on, Klin...

Re: Things That I've Noticed In MASH

Yep, Trapper was hardly mentioned after season 3, I'm guessing the whole "Trapper John M.D." flap had a lot to do with it... Things I notice lately have to do with the layout of the camp/hospital....Pre-op/supply room look virtually identical, the exterior doors entering pre-op/OR are different depe...

I had read a story where Loretta Swit was appearing in some regional theater production, and supposedly she was quite rude to the theatre staff..

Re: Rate them as actors,..

It seems like we're pretty much in agreement that when the show became more dramatic and roles expanded, there were a few actors who weren't up to the task. If you want to see how versatile Harry Morgan was watch him as Gen Steele in "The general flipped at dawn", then watch "change of command" or a...
