More than 300 votes were cast in last month’s poll. That’s the most votes since the “Favorite Commanding Officer” poll which ran from August to November 2013. I’m guessing a few of the angry Netflix viewers who found MASH4077TV.com took the time to cast a vote.
The poll last month asked “Are there any M*A*S*H episodes you refuse to watch?” Almost 75% of those voting said no. Here are the full results:
No (72%, 220 Votes)
Yes (28%, 86 Votes)
Total Voters: 306
I voted no, but I don’t watch M*A*S*H the way a lot of fans do. For the past few years, I’ve usually only had time to watch one episode a week and that’s the episode I’m reviewing for my Episode Spotlight every Monday. Back when I used to watch M*A*S*H on FX, I don’t recall avoiding certain episodes, even after I discovered the FX website and its schedule of upcoming episodes. I watched whatever episode(s) I could.
If I ever do get back to watching M*A*S*H just for fun without having to review episodes, I probably won’t be sitting down to watch “Our Finest Hour,” “Hawkeye,” or “Dreams” but I’m not totally opposed to those episodes.
If you’re one of the 86 people who said they do refuse to watch episodes of M*A*S*H, hit the comments with any examples and/or explanation you’d like to offer. If you’re a fan of the first three seasons, do you watch those exclusively and ignore the rest of the series? If you prefer the later years, do you refuse to watch the Trapper/Henry seasons? Or are there just a few episodes here and there that you just don’t like?
