Last month, as part of the Great 2015 M*A*S*H Episode Poll, visitors to MASH4077TV.com voted “Tuttle” their favorite episode from Season One of M*A*S*H. In second place was “Sometimes You Hear The Bullet,” with “The Longjohn Flap” rounding out the Top 3.
A total of 141 votes were cast and all but two episodes from the first season received at least one vote. The two episodes nobody voted for were “The Moose” and “Love Story.”

To be honest, I’m a little surprised “Edwina” received even one vote considering how many fans seem to hate the episode. I voted for “Requiem for a Lightweight” and was the only person to do so. It may not be the best episode from Season One but it introduced the late Marcia Strassman as Lt. Margie Cutler and she’s my favorite nurse from the series so the episode got my vote.
Hit the comments with your reactions to the results. Which episode did you vote for and why?
And don’t forget to vote in this month’s poll, which asks visitors to chose their favorite episode from Season Two. I’ll probably extend this poll until March 2nd to make up for February being such a short month.
