The MPs are always the worst. "Of the troops, for the troops" indeed.

Alas, the allure or An-jungri, outside the gate at the Hump, is irresistible.

A few years ago I had an assistant who was in her early 20s.  She was good; really able to anticipate something I needed before I asked her for it.

One time I had forgotten to do something or other and texted her to take care of my lapse and she texted me back that she'd already taken care of it.  I responded, "Thanks! You are my Radar."

Then it occurred to me that was a little ambiguous and she might not immediately associate that with the character.  So I texted her, "By Radar, I meant the character from M*A*S*H."

Then it occurred to me she was born about 15 years after M*A*S*H went off the air.  So I texted her, "M*A*S*H was a TV show a long time ago, and the character, Radar was always able to.... you know what?  Just ask your parents what I meant.  They'll explain it."

Then I went to Golden Corral, because it was 4 o'clock and that suddenly seemed very appropriate.

Yeah subby, but to be fair, mash was on during what, the 1970s? Everyone didn't have a TV back then. So the most-watched finale was probably around 632 people.

For some random reason I chose MASH as something to work my through during lockdown.

The tone really does change as Alda gains more and more creative control over the show.

I know that I am in the minority for my age, I am 37, but I love M*A*S*H. I have owned the complete series on DVD for 10+ years now. I randomly started watching it when I was in high school and never stopped.
I liked the movie but not as much as the series. But honestly I didn't know it was a movie first until I was in college.

I Loved M*A*S*H but the last few seasons became so preachy and smothered in morality it really slipped. Hung out just to see the end. Glad I saw Alda's most horrible over acting chicken moment.

Except for a specific rank, the term "junior" has been put to rest. Or they tried to. For three decades now. Because it's speaks of age discrimination.

I'll assume you are kidding. The M*A*S*H* finale was one of the most watched (the most watched?) TV episodes in history. Networks today dream of the numbers that episode pulled.
