  • Ugh. The worst! My least favorite episode of all. Boring, not funny and not very creative.

    I find this episode very boring. When it's on I do not watch it. I am a big MASH fan but have always felt the series suffered the more influence that Alan Alda had. Hawkeye becomes more and more political and politically correct and the dialog descends into one work play pun after another rather than the more realistic banter of earlier seasons. Alda's influence became apparent after the fourth or fifth season and I have always felt this is the episode that starts it all. By the last three or four seasons the episodes are painful to watch compared to the earlier seasons. I have always felt this episode is the symbolic beginning of it all.
