Last month’s poll topic was “Most Times You’ve Watched an Episode of M*A*S*H” and the results honestly surprised me. I did not expect the overwhelming majority of people to say they’ve watched an episode at least seven times and potentially more. If I’d known so many people watch episodes so many times, I would’ve included more options in the poll, like 10 times or even 15 times.
A total of 227 votes were cast last month. That’s the most votes since April’s poll.
Here are the full results:
7+ (85%, 194 Votes)
4 (5%, 12 Votes)
6 (3%, 7 Votes)
5 (2%, 5 Votes)
3 (2%, 4 Votes)
1 (1%, 3 Votes)
2 (1%, 2 Votes)
Total Voters: 227
Personally, I voted for 5 times but it’s entirely possible I have seen certain episodes 6 or 7 times (or even more). I like to keep track of the episodes I’ve seen but I’ve only been doing that since 2001. I know for a fact I’ve seen “M*A*S*H — The Pilot” at least five times. I’ve only seen “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen” all the way through twice. Most episodes I’ve seen two or three times.
However, I started watching M*A*S*H in 1998 when it began airing on FX. Those first few years aren’t reflected in my viewing record and that’s when I was watching the show whenever I could. I’m guessing I probably saw each episode twice during that time period. If so, that means like most fans I have seen a lot of episodes at least seven times.
Hit the comments with your thoughts. Does anyone else keep track of the episodes they’ve watched?
