  1. I was coming up on a month old when Mash premiered. I started paying attention to the series in the late 70’s. The first episode i watched was from Season 5. I wish i could remember which one all i do recall is that Margaret was going on about being engaged to Donald.

  2. We couldn’t watch M*A*S*H until season 3 in 1974, though I’d been watching All In The Family since the summer of ’72. Put a mild damper on the best-ever TV lineup (CBS, Saturday night, ’73-74). When I could finally watch it, I was overjoyed with how witty the show was. An instant favorite.

    Once, while my dad and soon-to be stepmom had it on, I snuck a peak just enough to see Radar hit in the trumpet with a tomato for bad playing.
