Re: (04x02) 074 - Welcome to Korea, Part 2

He actually said, "Uh-oh, Andy," to Radar.

He actually calls Radar "Andy" a few times throughout the series . . . this is before my time, so I don't quite know the details, but this is supposedly a refence to a youthful Mickey Rooney character named Andy, whom I guess was popular at the time.

Re: (01x03) 003 - Requiem for a Lightweight

Makes sense, when you consider a lot of the production crew from HOGAN'S HEROES transitioned to M*A*S*H in the beginning, including writer Laurence Marks, who did actually recycle some Hogan dialogue for Hawkeye. One specific example I can give you is from the HH episode "One Army at a Time," where ...

Re: Character Actors I Would Have Love to Have Seen on M*A*S*H

That's something else I think would have been interesting, if somehow any of the actors reprised their roles from HOGAN'S HEROES on M*A*S*H, showing that those characters were now involved in the Korean War. In addition to either Richard Dawson or Robert Clary, I could easily see Larry Hovis return ...

Character Actors I Would Have Love to Have Seen on M*A*S*H

One of the things that sitcoms and other shows of the 50s and 60s were noted for was their use of familiar faces in guest appearances, recurring roles, and other incidental parts - you would see these character actors on various different shows all the time, but this didn't seem to necessarily be so...

Re: Funky Background Music?

"To Market, To Market" perhaps made the most use of the funky and quirky music scoring, and yes, I too love the music that was used as we see Henry and Frank watching Henry's desk being whisked away by a chopper. I also loved the score that was used in "White Gold" while Flagg tears the tent apart t...

Re: Hawkeye

It was actually towards the end of Season 4. But no, the reason why this episode was made was because Larry Gelbart wanted to experiment to see if just one character could carry the whole show themselves . . . but unfortunately, Hawkeye was kind of a poor choice, given that he was already the unoffi...

Re: (01x14) 014 - Love Story

Of the three episodes involving Radar falling for a nurse (or four/five if we count his final two-parter), this one probably comes in second place with me. Ignoring the hypocrisy of the nurses not wanting to help Radar after they gave the men such a hard time about wanting to get a date for Edwina (...

Re: (01x13) 013 - Edwina

This is one of the few episodes of M*A*S*H that, to me, feels less like an episode of M*A*S*H, and more like an entry in an anthology series, with putting so much focus on the guest character, and as such, that makes it such a weak episode, IMO. It is amusing, however, seeing the infamous casanova o...

Re: (01x12) 012 - Dear Dad

For the longest time, both "Dear Dad" and "Dear Sis" were tied as my favorite Christmas episodes of M*A*S*H, however in recent years, "Dear Dad" has taken head and shoulders over "Dear Sis." While both are still very enjoyable episodes, and very well-done in their own ways, I find that "Dear Dad" is...

Another interesting tidbit of trivia is this episode features the last appearance of two Season 1 characters who were written off of the show: Spearchucker and Boone.

Re: (01x10) 010 - I Hate A Mystery

I have to say, it was really clever of Hawkeye to stage that monologue, and bluff Ho-Jon into revealing he was really the one who had been stealing everybody's belongings . . . but what's interesting is when you rewatch Hawkeye's bluff, notice everyone in the tent goes to check their fingernails, wh...

Re: (01x07) 007 - Bananas, Crackers and Eggs

Hey RJ, I think you made a little goof here: the episode title is "Bananas, Crackers, and Nuts," not "Bananas, Crackers, and Egg." ;) That being said, when I first started watching M*A*S*H as a teenager, this episode really, really confused me, and I think this actually says a lot about the Hawkeye ...
