Throwback Thursday – MASH [VIDEOS]
The show captured the daily routines of a Mobile Army Surgical Unit during the Korean War and ran from 1972 till its epic viewing finale on February 28,1983.
I remember a few dark episodes on the casualties of war but the series had many hilarious moments and maintain its audience even after some characters left the show.
I loved this show and watched most of the shows run.
I always found the main character Benjamin 'Hawkeye' Pierce to be real, Alan Alda did such a great job in his portrayal.
The constant heckling of Frank Burns from Pierce and Hunnicut, brought some of the funniest moments in the show's run.
One of the most dramatic episodes involved Hawkeye talking to the psychiatrist about a woman holding a clucking chicken on a bus going through hostile territory, and the chicken was making a lot of noise so the woman smothered it, and at the end we find out it wasn't a chicken, but the woman's child.
I think anyone who watched the show enjoyed it.
We recently lost William Christopher who played Father Mulcahy on the show, he died on December 31, 2016 at the age of 84.
My Throwback Thursday memory, 'M*A*S*H.
