Re: (06x04) 126 - Last Laugh

Very good season 6 effort that features a young James Cromwell (anyone think he could easily have played BJ?) as BJ's practical joking pal, and a hilarious subplot with Klinger & an imaginary camel. The one negative is Margaret, who has entered her "shrieking sharpie" phase constantly browbeating Po...

Re: Season 5 General Discussion

For me season 5 is much more character driven than the previous seasons. In probably the most pivotal change of the series, Margaret drops Frank and gets engaged. While it could be seen as personal growth, Margaret is callous & incredibly self absorbed about it, not caring about Frank in the least. ...

Re: (04x03) 075 - Change of Command

I remember not knowing what to think when we learned at the end of "Welcome to Korea" that Harry Morgan was returning to the show as the new C.O. Were we going to get another Gen Steele? It wasn't long after Potter's arrival that we realize that this is a totally different character we're dealing wi...

Re: (03x07) 055 - Check-Up

Some very funny moments in this episode, as well as a great performance by Wayne Rogers, who as we learned in "Kim", is probably the best actor in the series. What doesn't sit well with me is The doctors NOT knowing that you don't get sent home with an ulcer. wouldn't they know as well as anyone the...

Re: (02x12) 036 - The Incubator

As we learned from "Divided we stand" and "For the good of the outfit", Hawkeye & Trapper vs. the Army is a formula that works, and "The incubator" is one of best examples. After a hilarious scene with Henry (thar she blows!) and Captain Sloan (Eldon Quick), Hawk & Trapper slog their way through cha...

Re: (02x18) 042 - Operation Noselift

For some reason, this episode doesn't sit right with me. It isn't terrible, but there's a silliness to it that reminds me of season 1. plus Todd Sussmann's prosthetic nose looks completely phony..

Re: (02x13) 037 - Deal Me Out

Playing poker was a recurring theme going back to season 1 (they had to do something when they weren't working), but in "Deal me out", a poker game is the centerpiece for this very funny episode. It's very much an ensemble effort. Everybody shines, especially Pat Morita, who almost steals the show.

Re: (02x05) 029 - Dr. Pierce and Mr. Hyde

After episodes like "Divided we stand" & "5 O'clock Charlie", this one is a clunker. An overworked & sleep-deprived Hawkeye spends most of the episode wandering the compound in a semiconscious state, asking questions & being a general nuisance, before coming to the conclusion that the whole war is a...

Re: (01x23) 023 - Ceasefire

As the episode title implies, news of a ceasefire (or just a rumor, as it turns out) hits the 4077th, and the celebration begins. Hawkeye as usual goes overboard, forgiving poker IOU's, giving away the camp to Ho-Jon and his family, and inexplicably informing his various love interests that he's mar...

Re: (01x22) 022 - Major Fred C. Dobbs

One of the most maligned episodes of the series, and it's easy to see why..the tricks Hawkeye & Trapper play on Frank seem gratuitous & unprovoked, Frank & Hot lips requesting transfers rather than going over Henry's head (what they usually do) seems a bit out of character, but the whole "gold rush"...

Re: (01x21) 021 - Sticky Wicket

One of the better efforts from season one,..Hawkeye as usual insults Frank's surgical aptitude (or lack thereof), but this time around, Hawkeye has a patient who develops complications, and Frank sees if "Dr perfect can take it as well as he dishes it out". This episode, like "sometimes you hear the...

Re: (01x19) 019 - The Long-John Flap

The story itself is pretty good, although the comedy seems pretty pedestrian; it's obvious that Alan Alda is no Larry Gelbart. still a step ahead of episodes like "Cowboy", and "Edwina"

Re: (01x13) 013 - Edwina

After a couple of solid efforts in "I hate a mystery" and "Germ Warfare", "Edwina" is most definitely a step backward. The second act is downright cringeworthy at times with the silly bullfight music and the slapstick clumsiness.

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

The whole "pretend to be sick/crazy so you can get a vacation" ploy has been done to death, ("The Honeymooners" did something similar way back when) and this particular episode adds its own twist. Until Hawkeye is placed under arrest, Things are pretty uninspired, the dog in the hospital bed, and Ha...
