    True.
    It's like Blake's demise was their opening to take things a more serious turn.
    Honestly I wonder, had it stayed like the early seasons, if it'd have lasted til season 11

    You're all right. And I don't think they would have lasted, Skydiver. I'm glad they did though. So now on to the next discussion. Who was better...


    Trapper John

    OR


    BJ
    Turas maith, slán abhaile

    John 3:16

    I think they would have as long as they were respectful the content. Its not like show drastically changed to serious. It still had comedy but just not as intense. I for loved Klinger in later seasons when he became more than just a cross dresser. As long as the show was respectful with the comedy it would have lasted. A lot of people were also negative about the overdramatic and people still watched.

    It was during those years when M*A*S*H had a mixture of drama and comedy that a new term was coined - 'Dramedy'.

    I'm having a really hard time choosing between BJ and Trapper. They were both good in their own way.

    I agree with you there, but I really liked BJ better because of what he brought to the show. Trapper John was good for the pranks he and Hawkeye played on others, but BJ was great for the dramedy side of it.

    Trapper by far. I love the earlier seasons a lot more than the later seasons. The antics was more enjoyable then the melodrama towards the end

    I'd have to go with BJ. All he really wanted to do was put his time in, save as many people as he could and go home to his wife and daughter. I really liked his humor as well.

    Okay, here's another one for everyone. Who was the better company clerk?


    Radar

    OR


    Klinger

    Radar was fun, but Klinger was more real.
    How many company clerks struggled and fought to make things work?

    I always thought Radar and his EPS was funny. However, Klinger and all his wheeling and dealing and his battle to get his head around the job early on were fun to watch.

    I hear ya on that one. Klinger was so funny trying to get out dressed in woman's clothes, and Radar was indeed funny with his ESP. But Then Klinger wheeling-and-dealing was fun to watch, too. There was one scene that best fits Klingers wheeling-and-dealing. He had gotten a bottle of snooty French vino, and Charles finds out about it. He asks Klinger to go get it, and he does, but it costs Charles a lot of money. It's the epi 'Taking the Fifth'. Made me laugh hard! ROFL!!

    My two most favorite episodes come from Season 2.

    "Five O'Clock Charlie" mainly for everything Hawkeye and Trapper due to Frank and "The Incubator" for the ending. Hawkeye and Trapper do everything and anything they can think of to get one and Radar just surprises them with it.

    Season 1's "Army-Navy Game" is right up there too. Watching Frank faint always makes me chuckle as does the poker game.
