Re: Season 6 General Discussion

There is a wonderful post out just today by none other than MASH writer Ken Levine about the season six episode, The Merchant of Korea which followed the heavily melodramatic two parter, Comrades in Arms. The episode itself is very contrived with the premise that somehow Charles takes advantage of ...

2. Dreams - Among MASH fans,it's the consensus pick for the worst ever
Well, "Dreams" is actually among my top 3 or so favorites, depending my mood when you ask me. Yes, it's kind of strange and dark, but I don't watch MASH for lighthearted comedy.

Re: Season 8 General Discussion

I liked a lot of the Season 8 episodes. "April Fools", "Dreams", "Life Time" are among my favorite of the whole series. Charles' part in "Morale Victory" was excellent. I do think they spent too long on Radar's departure. That could have made one good episode. Stretching it to two didn't work. It wa...

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

I agree. Film, TV, etc., should be left in the original aspect ratio. MASH was made prior to planning for material to be released in wide format, but even material made later, the idea that a director could frame shots to look good in two different aspect ratios at the same time is a pipe dream. If ...

It looks like no one has answered. That was the Cowboy, from the episode of the same name. His real name was John :lol:

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

I'm not sure releasing it in HD would be a good idea. It was made in the age of broadcast TV, to be shown on low-resolution 480 lines sets, with lots of static and ghosting on the side. The details that HD would make visible would include a lot of things that weren't an intentional part of the show ...

Re: David Ogden Stiers Passed away

I watched "Fade out, fade in" tonight in his honor. He was a great actor, creating a character annoying enough to be a good foil and source of conflict, yet also sympathetic.

Re: (08x23) 196 - War Co-Respondant

An episode that comes across as forced and unnatural. If B.J. were going to stumble/be tempted again it seems that one of the nurses he works with on a regular basis is the natural choice. I like a lot of Season 8 but not this episode. Aggie did come across as a drifter who did not want romantic at...

Sarah is a really significant name for me, so I would remember if I ever heard it uttered on M*A*S*H . . . and I don't.
There was a Sarah. Sarah Miller was one of the USO troop who got stranded at the 4077 in "That's Showbiz". The singer who sang Cockles and Muscles Alive, Alive O.

If I had a time machine, I would have gone back a little farther and tell North Korea not to start something they can't finish.

And a 3-day pass for Klinger.

Maj. Houlihan was an army brat. She didn't really have a home town. Yes, she was at Fort Bliss some of the time, but moved around frequently.

How about Colonel Flagg insead of Trapper. Trapper isn't my type and if we have BJ we don't need a second doctor. However, the 8th Army would be very concerned if Colonel Flagg got lost. They'd do whatever it took to rescue him, and they'd find all of us along the way.

Henry dying is essential to the show. If nobody ever dies, you're not telling a war story, you're telling a summer camp story or something. It's Gomer Pyle, not MASH. Likewise, in a war, they take people they need, and they needed surgeons, and it didn't matter if they weren't the military type or i...
