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: (08x23) 196 - War Co-Respondant

In my opinion they’ve absolutely nailed this episode and the feedback here has really surprised me. This episode is very well considered and has a lot of depth to it... and here’s why (IMO of course): Aggie is exactly and the only type of person that can properly cause BJ to question his life-decisi...

Re: Who Is Your Least Favorite Character On Mash?

I do get the BJ heat... the problem with him IMO is that until the later seasons when he develops that angry streak, BJ actually offers little to the show beyond puns. He’s always that nice, well balanced guy and the show really struggles as a result. That season 4-7 sees us lose characters like Bur...

Re: (11x09) 249 - Run For the Money

This is an episode that used to be one of my absolute favourites, but over the years it has lost a certain degree of its appeal. It's a two story episode that largely focuses on Father Mulcahy being drawn into running a race against the 8063's best runner: Jack "The Rabbit" Le Masters after Klinger ...

Re: Who do you like more.....

Arguments that BJ was a more developed character than Trapper are a bit bizarre to me... of course he was, Trapper was on the show for 3 season, BJ = 8. Personally, I always thought Trapper was a much better character myself. It took the producers 2 seasons to figure out how to use him properly and ...

Re: (04x01) 073 - Welcome to Korea, Part 1

One thing that gets overlooked in this episode is the surprisingly graceful way the show writers manage the exit of Trapper John. Unlike Henry that was a bit more planned, I feel like the writers were put into a bit of a position where all of a sudden Wayne Rogers is gone, and it's something that th...

Re: (08x03) 176 - Guerilla My Dreams

I'm not saying it isn't... It's just not realistic. That's the point. An injury like that, she's not up and walking over a day or two, or even a week for that matter. We're talking weeks... Weeks. She's not staying there for that duration of time whilst more seriously injured ppl are being moved on ...

Re: (08x03) 176 - Guerilla My Dreams

I do get that KKT But that bed is a bed taken away from a wounded person thats unconscious, shot up etc etc requiring a patient not suitable for travel to be further evac'ed... None of Potter, Hawkeye etc will stand for that either Despite that cheap attempt to justify it... Which the writers did......

Re: (08x03) 176 - Guerilla My Dreams

I'll add to that...

As far as clumsy writing goes, there's a scene where the guerrilla is walking in the OR on crutches... Like MASH is the type of place where ppl would do that level of rehab

Is very clumsily written

So rate the main characters

Always a controversial mission because you like or dislike particular characters for a variety of different reasons... Mine generally tends to focus on development and consistency... For mine going from favourite to least favourite 1. Potter - easily the most well written, best developed, and consis...

Re: (07x15) 162 - Dear Sis

Heading well into season 7, it's kind of odd that the question of exactly what a main character role is, a character that's been there since the start I should add, but it is. We know that Father Mulcahy is a nice guy, he's linked to the local orphanage, he runs sermons that people seldom attend, he...
