I remembered when that first aired. I worked at a popcorn shop in the local mall and it was my night to work. I think I had two or three sales total the entire night. It was a ghost town.

I love MASH. To me it was the precurser to Scrubs. Humor with some drama thrown in.

M*A*S*H* (1972-83) for "Mobile Army Surgical Hospital" was one of my favorite shows.

I loved Winchester, the pompous prig from Boston
Klinger was my favorite
I loved Potter, Hawkeye, BJ; Alan the Psychiatrist
and all the other characters.

I did not like Frank Burns with his wimpy laugh and
irritating ways; Henry Blake, the bumbling fisherman
or Hot Lips, the nurse virago.

Winchester was a scream! I loved the way he spoke.
One of my favorite episodes was when he got back at
Hawkeye and BJ for practical joking him.

Sometimes Henry got on my nerves, but I cried like a baby when he died.

It's weird, but sometimes it was like watching two different shows. The Blake/Trapper/Burns episodes and the Potter/Winchester/Hunnicut episodes felt very different.

The very first episode of M*A*S*H will be on at 5pm and again at 11pm the early episodes are so important because they have Trapper (Wayne Rogers) and Henry (McLean Stevenson) in them. Wayne and McLean were only on M*A*S*H for the first three seasons after that they left because it became The Alan Alda Show and they were not getting any good lines and Trapper was being treated as Hawkeye's sidekick and not his partner in crime. I always will love M*A*S*H but after Wayne Rogers and McLean Stevenson left the show it got a little too serious for it's own good and it became kinda lame, but these are the episodes we should cherish because this may be the last time The Hallmark Channel shows every single episode of the show. If you cried on Friday because of the last episode then your heart will break when the episode where Henry dies, but that won't happen for a couple of months. I've seen every single episode several times over but the first three seasons always puts a smile on your face and tugs at your heart. So watch M*A*S*H even if you have never seen an episode before believe me you won't regret it, help support the greatest show of all times.

There's only one episdoe that I can never watch again. The one where everyone has weird dreams. Hawkeye's scared me to death.

Oh, yes, I love this show as well, and I've managed to acquire seasons 1-4 on DVD. I definitely prefer Charles Winchester III and Sherman Potter over Frank Burns and Henry Blake. The duo of Hawkeye/B.J. just couldn't "push those two around" like they could with Frank & Henry.
One of my favorite episodes is also the "Ribs From Chicago" one, and the "Life Time" one, where the patient's aorta is in bad shape and they need a graft and they show that little clock at the bottom of the screen.
And of course, the final episode!
Oh, onosideboards, where is that M*A*S*H forum? What's the name of it?

I found it boring when I was a kid because I didn't get the jokes. Now I like it.

i agree 100%. i used to watch it with my grandpa growing up. that show is a classic and i don't think any other show had lasted at long as M*A*S*H did.

Stargate has. It's been on for ten seasons. Gunsmoke was on for twenty seasons.

It was a great show. It is very hard for me to pick a favorite episode. All the characters had their strong points and moments on the show.

The big difference between the movie and the TV show was that in the movie Trapper John was the lead roll and Hawkeye was the support.

I love MASH, also one of my friends. I have so many favorite episodes... like when Nurse Kelly (I think that's her name >.<) develops a bit of a crush on Hawkeye and he keeps ignoring her until the end. Also when Hawkeye and "Hot-Lips" end up making out when they're being bombed in an abandoned hut. The one when B.J. pulls a prank on Hawkeye, by making him think he got everyone else.

I love that show.

I love M*A*S*H! We bought all the seasons on DVD, and we're just at the beginning of the sixth. I like how it mixes comedy with serious issues, but still in a tasteful way.
