Thumbs up M*A*S*H 35th anniversary.

I've been watching the marathons and specials on TVLand for Mash this week, it's been great. I loved watching the reunion show from 2002.
Such an incredible tv series. the mixture of comedy and drama, tv's first dramedy.

No matter how many times I watch these episodes I can't get tired of them.

Just the way these actors melded, the stories so unique, you can laugh and cry in the same episode. Everything they did was just right.

Family guy had the nerve once to remark how the show got all preachy later on and dramatic, it was not preachy and if it did speak out against war then good, also considering Vietnam was going on when the show first started, FG's nothing more than a show that does nothing more than reference things. And as for being dramatic, well yeah, it wasn't just about antics in war it was about the Doctors and Nurses enduring such horror so near the front.

Alan Alda is so incredible, I love everything he did on the show, and then there's the relationship between Radar and Col. Blake and later Potter.

Radar could be sweet and innocent then funny as hell and showed a few signs of being one of the guys, but not too much.

I really like Blake, but Potter's my fave Col.

Klinger was always great, just fun to wait and see what he'd be wearing and what he'd pull to try and get a section 8. I love the time he tried to get out on a hang glider.

So many great one liners came out of Mash. Usually from Hawkeye.
One of my fave moments was when Potter was drunk and fell down and he asked 'Did I just fall down?' and Hawkeye and BJ say no after picking him up, and he says, 'I didn't think so.' so funny.

This show is the best tv series ever, I don't care what anyone says.

I'm bumping this thread due to the recent passing of esteemed actor Alan Alda, aka Benjamin "Hawkeye" Pearce. RIP Hawkeye, you will be missed.


I grew up watching M*A*S*H. I was really young during its original run, but there was always a channel showing it in reruns. I always liked the zany antics of the characters, even when I was too young to understand the politics behind the plotlines (and the plots almost always had a political undertone). While the earlier episodes with Col Blake, Major Burns, and Trapper John McIntire were good, my favorites were always the later episodes with Col Potter, Major Winchester, and BJ.

The cover of a magazine yesterday morning. Granted it was a gossip magazine, but when it comes to the news of recent celebrity deaths they're usually fairly accurate. They might make up celebrity affairs and such. But celebrity deaths? Much harder to fake.

maybe you should get your facts straight for accuracy's sake, because Alan Alda is very much alive, guy... look before you leap...
