Discuss: How Many Episodes of M*A*S*H Did You Watch in 2021?

No, I’m not bringing back Monday M*A*S*H Discussions, which ran weekly from November 2017 to September 2018 and again from May 2019 to November 2019. However, I may occasionally post discussion topics if I think of a particularly good one and I will probably post them on Mondays.

Today we’re discussing how many episodes of M*A*S*H we watched in 2021. Most people don’t keep track of each and every episode of television they watch. But I do so I can tell you exactly how many episodes of M*A*S*H I watched last year.

Zero.

That’s right, I didn’t watch a single episode of M*A*S*H in 2021. I can try to blame the DVD drive on my computer, which doesn’t always work, or the fact that Hulu streams M*A*S*H in widescreen, which I don’t like. But the truth is I have very little free time to watch television these days and way too many TV shows I want to watch. I’ve seen every episode of M*A*S*H at least five or six times, so the show isn’t anywhere near the top of my watch list at the moment.

I do hope to watch at least a handful of episodes of M*A*S*H in 2022, however.

How many episodes of M*A*S*H did you watch last year?

    1. Me too. I recently got a Hulu account and saw the show on there. Thought it was a good time as any to rewatch- barring a few episodes which I never really enjoyed anyway like ‘Yessir, That’s Our Baby,’ and ‘Bless You, Hawkeye.’ I found a new appreciation for episodes I had written off before like ‘Inga.’

      I am, however, still holding off on watching GFA. That always leaves me emotionally wrecked, so waiting on a better time to finish it.

    2. Decided to go back through my DVDs of MASH. All the way to Season 9 now where Pierce is building the tongue depressor episode.

  1. Watched all episodes several (like a couple of hundred) times. Since a month or 2 I’m watching them online on a stream site.

  2. Since I got a Disney+ subscription, I watched the whole show from start to finish in 2021, so I watched each episode once. And I realised that the later seasons aren’t as bad as I remembered them. Sure, there are moments in the later seasons where some of the characters are completely out of..well..character and more episodes than before that simply aren’t very good, but they held my interest more than I remembered. Of course, they don’t hold a candle to the earlier seasons in comparison.

    But I was also surprised to see that the first dull episodes started to appear already in Season 4 (Hawkeye and The Kids immediately spring to mind) and that Frank started turning into a buffoon already in that season, and not after Margaret broke up with him.

  3. After many years without M*A*S*H, I saw each episode in 2021 except GFA.
    M * A * S * H runs here on TV, Monday to Fridays each 2 episodes.

  4. In 2021 I watched the complete series (minus Goodbye, Farewell and Amen) on each MeTV and TVLand, plus a few marathons … Then we got Hulu and I couldn’t resist viewing the series without the cuts … and then again just because they were so great (still haven’t watched GFA).

    I’m making up for lost time, I’m old enough to have watched when it first showed but my life was too busy for tv (apparently not now). It didn’t take long to get hooked after stumbling on a few episodes in 2020.

    However, unlike many who post here I am amazed at how incredibly brilliant the series is from beginning to end, all the talent getting eleven seasons to production has yet to be matched.
    I wouldn’t want anything changed, what we have is what made it M*A*S*H … and it’s obviously a success as it is (as well as a classic).

  5. Zero full episodes in 2021. I occasionally stop on ME TV for a scene or two, but I get so annoyed with the deleted scenes and the sped up delivery that I have to switch the channel. If memory serves when ME TV first went national they prided themselves on showing uncut episodes of old shows. Somewhere along the way they abandoned that approach and now they broadcast a cut down/sped up version of MASH that runs about 20 minutes with 10 minutes of commercials.

    I have the DVD’s of Seasons 1-4, but I very rarely watch DVD’s anymore.

  6. None. I watched all of them in 2008, and hadn’t watched any of them since then – until January 1st this year, when I started another M*A*S*H-athon. I’m 31 episodes in.
