    Default Re: M.A.S.H - Discussions and everything else...

    Quick rundown of which members of the principal cast are still with us -

    Alan Alda (Hawkeye), 82.
    Mike Farrell (B.J. Hunnicutt), 79.
    Jamie Farr (Cpl. Klinger), 83.
    Lorretta Swit (Hotlips), 80.
    Gary Burghoff (Radar O'Reilly), 74.
    Kellye Nakahara (Nurse Kellye), 67.
    Jeff Maxwell (Igor), 70.
    G.W. Bailey, (Sgt. Rizzo), 73.
    Odessa Cleveland (Nurse Ginger Bayliss), 73.
    Karen Phillip (Lt. Dish), 72.

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    Thanks, BruTak! I didn't know who all was left.

    Here's another question. Who was the best Colonel that ran the 4077th? Was it Lt. Col. Henry Blake, or was it Col. Sherman T. Potter? Opinions, thoughts?

    Potter.

    Sometimes Henry Blake was a bit too easy going, and let Hawkeye get away with just about anything.

    But Sherman Potter was a calming influence, and knew when to reign Hawkeye in.

    Potter. BLake, while a nice guy, was not a leader....he just happened to be given the rank of colonel. Potter led, Henry followed.

    I have to agree with everybody, Potter was the best. He know just how much leash to give Hawkeye and the rest. Everybody just ran all over Blake.

    Everybody's right. Potter knew when to let go and when not to. Henry was just funny!

    It's one of those weird/spooky coincidences, McLean Stevenson and Roger Bowen both played Lt. Col. Henry Blake in "M*A*S*H" - the former in the TV series, the latter in the original movie.

    They both died of a heart attack exactly one day apart.

    Just as general FYI for those of us in the UK, the True Entertainment channel has the show on a more or less constant loop, and have just gone round the horn to the start of season 1.

    I think Blake was to make the point that "Hey, we're Doctors, we're not and don't want to be G.I. Joe"

    I can agree on that.

    We’re doctores, not military don’t expect perfection transitioning to (hey, the show is going to last so....) ok now we have a military doctor that can be both.

    I caught the end of a news story on the radio earlier, about that nice Mr. Trump planning a visit to his North Korean counterpart.

    The expert in Korean affairs being one Greg Klinger.

    The only thing I can think of offhand, is Alan Alda playing Senator Arnold Vinick in 28 episodes of "The West Wing".

    But if someone else knows otherwise, I'm happy to be corrected.

    Watching season 1, ep. 15, "Tuttle".

    Notable for being the only time we ever see Radar's pal Sparky in person

    The WGN America channel is having a M*A*S*H marathon right now. All with Maj. Charles Winchester, RIP. I liked the one Halloween episode where Father Mulchahey was gone and the others were telling ghost stories in the OR. One man was 'dead', until the Father came back and gave him last rights, making the man cry. Good episode!

    OH yeah, that one was so creepy. ANd you just know probably based on real life events. As I remember, many of the storylines were at least inspired by real events from the war or other wars

    I know. It WAS creepy. I also remember one episode early on where Hawkeye needed new boots. I remember one reunion show Alan Alda said he used someone's real boots all 11 seasons. A lot of props/costumes were from the War.

    There was a theory going around a few years ago that the 4077th M*A*S*H was really a "Life on Mars"/"Ashes to Ashes" style purgatory for dead army medics.

    It would go some way to explaining all the discrepancies and anomalies - Radar reading a comic that wasn't printed until the 1960s for example.
