  1. Do you have any idea who is the actress who played the role of the (intentionally) severe Louise (Mrs. Frank) Burns in the “home movie” featured in the 1974 episode “There Is Nothing Like A Nurse”?

  2. I read on another site that the picture on Col. Potters desk of his wife Mildred is actually a picture of actress Spring Byington, then I read somewhere else that it’s a picture of Harry Morgans second wife. So, who is it?

    1. I’ve read that it’s a picture of Morgan’s first wife, Eileen, who died in 1985, after MASH went off the air. He wasn’t married to his second wife until after his first wife passed away.

  3. M*A*S*H is the greatest program, of all time. There is no valid reason, to remove it, from any station. Please bring it back, as quickly, as possible!

  4. What are the economics of not making this available for download/purchase on iTunes. I have the DVDs but want access via appleTV. So frustrating.

  5. I spoke with Netflix they are working on the license agreements for the show. The man on the phone said it will return eventually… until then ilbeseeinyahenry

  6. The TV Series and Cast were the BEST. God Bless them ALL We laughed and cried through the whole series, it was wonderful. Alan Alda if you ever read these comments “Same Time Next Year” is still #1 on our movie list. We stayed at Little River in California where the set was.
    Thanks for the memories!

  7. Is there any particular reason why the five or six outlets (WGN,Sundance,AMC,TVL etc)that currently run M*A*S* H* keep airing the same twelve episodes? Not that I’m complaining, some of my favorite episodes are included in the group such as “Tuttle” The Pilot and “Lifetime”, but there are so many other episodes that never get run at all.

  8. Almost daily on UK Freeview-shown (and no doubt on various subscription channels like Sky, BT, etc) channel called True Entertainment. Mon-Fri it’s 2 shows from 7pm onwards; Sundays it’s 4 per day, 7pm-9pm..
    Weekday episodes are almost always out of sync with Sundays eg at the moment (Nov. 2018) we’re in Season 7 on weekdays; it’s Season 2 on Sundays.
    I discovered MASH via this channel about 3 years ago, & it’s been on a continuous loop ever since – although it does tend to skip some of the latter seasons – so I’m roughly on my third or fourth round of Season 7!
    As far as I know it’s the full versions of episodes shown.

    1. Dale, you got there ahead of me! This Freeview channel is how I discovered MASH a few years ago. Too young (and too overseas!) to catch it 1st time around and rarely crossed my path afterwards. Frankly, due to no interest in hospital drama (never wanted to watch UK long-runner Casualty), MASH passed me by. Now it’s one of my all-time favourites… I make a point to catch it Mon-Fri.

  9. Hey TVLAND. Where is MASH? It suddenly disappeared. Hope it’s coming back soon. We look forward to it every week day afternoon/evening. Andy Griffith is all right but not INSTEAD of MASH. And not ALL DAY. Nothing can replace MASH… classic…best show ever.

  10. Watch the out-takes and bloopers from MASH. They also show full episodes of MASH.

    That will get you through the times you can’t find any shows.
