Wow this a hard question just because M*A*S*H has such great characters even the annoying ones like Frank. I would have to say Colonel Potter because he was really the glue that kept everyone together in the last couple seasons. I always hear a lot from other fans he reminds them of there Grandpa. I wouldn't say that was so about me. But he's like a father figure to everyone in M*A*S*H and its beautiful .. You see this theme a lot with Hawkeye and Margaret. It makes me tear up when Margaret says goodbye to Colonel Potter in Goodbye, Farewell and amen. :potter:

I really liked Henry Blake, Radar, and of course Hawkeye. Hawkeye for the obvious reasons. Radar reminds me of what my grandfather would have been like in WW2, his looks and personality just remind me of him. Henry Blake because he was so fun loving, always was up for a good time. He was just one of the guys basically without the "regular army" approach of Co. Potter. I don't dislike any characters with my least favorite being Houlihan. She yells just about every line she has and gets annoying to me. In lower lever characters I really don't like Nurse Kelly, she was just winy and I cant stand her.

It really depends... favorite to watch on TV, probably Hawkeye. But I wouldn't want to bunk with him.

Favorite to share a tent with, B.J.

Favorite to be my boss, Potter. Unless I were his clerk, in which case Blake. :mrgreen:

Favorite doctor to treat me if I were wounded with an ordinary combat injury when MASH was busy, Hawkeye. But if it wasn't busy or if the wound were something more exotic, Charles.

Favorite to be a girlfriend, Nurse Margie Cutler from Season 1.

Favorite to be my clerk if I needed something, Radar.

My favorite would be Charles. He's such a wonderfully dynamic character. His snobby arrogance, his ability to dish out insults and play pranks on the other characters all lead to great comedy. On the other hand, he has his own strengths that help him be more admirable than Frank was, and more than he initially appears to be. He's a great surgeon, despite having a hard time conforming with meatball surgery. He has his own moral code, which may not always align with our own, but gives him his shining moments (i.e. sticking up for Margaret when Colonel Baldwin wants him to lie). And while he may be the most reluctant to change, he's actually open to it when the situation calls for it. There are a good number of times he's humbled by a situation. And it helps that he has the most consistently great set of dramatic episodes IMO.

I don't have a favorite character as i like something about each one on the series. Even Frank who was hard to take at times. I will say that when it comes to the nurses Margaret, Bigelow, and Kellye are the best.
