This Week: September 15th, 2013


Every Sunday, I look back at the episodes of M*A*S*H and AfterMASH that originally aired decades ago during the coming week.

This Tuesday marks the 41st anniversary of the series premiere of M*A*S*H. To celebrate, I’m launching a new weekly feature called This Week On M*A*S*H that will list — week by week — which episodes of M*A*S*H (and AfterMASH) aired during the corresponding week in the 1970s and 1980s.

The plan is for This Week on M*A*S*H to run through the end of March 2014, followed by one or two wrap-up posts covering the handful of episodes that were originally aired during the months of April and May.

So, here are the episodes of M*A*S*H (and AfterMASH) that aired between September 15th and September 21st:

September 15th:
M*A*S*H, “Divided We Stand” (Episode #25, Season Two), originally aired 40 years ago on Saturday, September 15th, 1973.

September 17th:
M*A*S*H, “M*A*S*H – The Pilot” (Episode #1, Season One), originally aired 41 years ago on Monday, September 17th, 1972.

M*A*S*H, “Rainbow Bridge” (Episode #50, Season Three), originally aired 39 years ago on Tuesday, September 17th, 1974.

M*A*S*H, “Too Many Cooks” (Episode #170, Season Eight), originally aired 34 years ago on Monday, September 17th, 1979.

September 18th:
M*A*S*H, “Commander Pierce” (Episode #145, Season Seven), originally aired 35 years ago on Monday, September 18th, 1978.

September 19th:
M*A*S*H, “Change of Command” (Episode #74, Season Four), originally aired 38 years ago on Friday, September 19th, 1975.

September 20th:
M*A*S*H, “Fade Out, Fade In” (Episode #121, Season Six), originally aired 36 years ago on Tuesday, September 20th, 1977.

September 21st:
M*A*S*H, “Bug Out” (Episode #97, Season Five), originally aired 37 years ago on Tuesday, September 21st, 1976.

Because I wanted to kick off this feature the week of the series premiere, two episodes of M*A*S*H have been missed: “The General Flipped at Dawn” (Episode #49, Season Three), which originally aired 39 years ago on September 10th, 1974 and “Welcome To Korea” (Episode #73, Season Four), which originally aired 38 years ago on Friday, September 12th, 1975.

  1. This is what the site needed as a boost to the regular routine of “Name that Episode” and “Episode Spotlight”. Just thought I’d point this one typo in the post, I believe that DIVIDED WE STAND was in Season Two, not Season Three. Not trying to be critical just letting you know.:)
