The 21st episode of M*A*S*H aired 50 years ago today. “Sticky Wicket” aired for the first time on Sunday, March 4th, 1973 on CBS.
Here’s the capsule summary from my Episode Spotlight for the episode:
After criticizing Frank’s competence as a surgeon, Hawkeye finds himself question his own ability when a patient starts to spiral in post op.
“Sticky Wicket” features footage seemingly shot at the same time as the famous “running nurses” sequence from the opening credits.
Check back next week for the next installment of 50 Years of M*A*S*H.
