New Facebook Group

For the past couple of years or so, I belonged to a pretty neat M*A*S*H Facebook group, however I was recently banned from the group after a fight broke out between myself and another member who was very much reminiscent to Frank Burns; so saying, I decided to open up a new Facebook group, and I'm e...

Re: Things That I've Noticed In MASH

They had so many "Dear..." episodes that I wished they had done a "Dear Trapper" one. The closest thing we ever came to that was one scene in one episode from Season 3 (I forget which episode) where Trapper writes to one of his daughters for her birthday, describing how he lives in a tent that's ol...

Re: M*A*S*H in HD (and Widescreen)

The only time I've ever experienced seeing additional footage added to the sides of something in a widescreen 16:9 format are Muppet movies . . . other than that, my experiences is that 16:9 crops the top and bottom of the frame, so you end up losing the top of someone's head (especially jarring for...

Another Fire

The Malibu Creek Park has gone up in flames due to the ever-raging wildfires that have been reducing California to ashes, and that includes the spot where M*A*S*H used to be filmed.

Re: Will Disney soon own M*A*S*H?

Slightly off-topic, but I would also like to add that not only would Disney end up owning my favorite show, but my two favorite comedy movies as well - and that's all the more cringeworthy to think about it.

Re: Will Disney soon own M*A*S*H?

The thing of it is though, M*A*S*H was shot on film, not videotape. Videotape was made specifically for the intention of being broadcasted on the 480 resolution as you say, film wasn't. This is why when you up-convert videotape to HD, while it may look good, you get a lot of interlacing (those annoy...

The idea of Disney owning M*A*S*H is cringeworthy to think about.

Re: Things That I've Noticed In MASH

In regards to #2 and #3, it was felt that one of the problems with the first season was there were far too many minor characters to write for, which is why they dropped all of them, except for Klinger since he was such a hit, and Father Mulcahy since he proved to be a vital part of the cast.

ROLL OUT!

I could have sworn I started a thread about this years ago, I guess not. But anyway, did you know what M*A*S*H actually had a sister show that only lasted half a season in 1973? When M*A*S*H ended up becoming a hit for the network, CBS turned to Larry Gelbart and Gene Reynolds, asking them to create...

Ya but Jeanette Miller is a cartoon so if you try to do anything inappropriate there could be a big steel jaw bear trap in place.
Either that, or her sister Brittany would rip me to shreds, since she don't let anybody mess with her sisters.

Re: If you were a castaway on a desert Island what 6 M.A.S.H characters would you want with you and why?

At least Charles, because I could eat him since he's plump and juicy; Klinger would be too tough and stringy (and certainly too hairy).

Wonder if anyone would understand the reference.

Re: Does the present day tensions with North Korea effect your enjoyment of watching M.A.S.H nowadays?

To be fair, the Korean War has never really officially ended, it's just sort of been put on hold as it war all these years: a truce was signed, but never a peace treaty, so the war could start up again at any given moment, as you say. The tensions never really went away, and as we've seen over the y...
