  • Jeeps

    Col. Potter's jeep is the same that Maj. Burns is detained for,

    of course its the one Capt.'s Pierce, Hunnicutt and Cpl. Oreily stole from Gen. Dickering In Kimpo which is the one used by M.P.'s to block the road.

    The jeep that 3 M.P.'s are in when Maj. Burns is detained is the same Hawkeye and Radar had when stopped the first time.

    BJ -and several other personel-are shown arriving in a dress uniform-he would have worn fatigues or utility unifrom

    Also this claims BJ Is 28 and graduated from Samford University Medical School...

    In fact....

    sanford Medical School didnt come into existance until after the Korean War

    Ina later epsiode with his friend Leo Battennelo BJ claims he was married 10 years before and apparently after graduating from Medical School--which meands he went to medical School at 14-gradauted at 18 got married--and missed WORLD WAR II????

    Also in some epsiodes he claims his daughter was still an infant and in others that she is a little older than a baby... and although he gets gulit trips from coming very close to have affairs with other women besides his wife..there is a scene where BJ and hawkeye sing a duet about working on patients theought out the day and nurses thoughout the night which would be more in keeping eith Trapper John attitiude toward marraige and women...in fact there is a scene after the BUG out which shows Hawkeye and BJ sitting in louge chairs wearing hawaiian shirts while a laterine is being dug-which is almost exactly like the piolot epsodie which show Trapper John and hawkeye sitting in louge chairs wearing Hawain shirts....swopping Trapper John and replacing him with BJ
  • Trapper leaves, B J arrives

    Welcome to Korea

    Season 4 begins with Trapper going home while Hawkeye is on R and R. He misses Trapper by 10 min. but welcomes B J Honeycutt (Mike Farrel) to Korea and boy does he get an awakening as to what he is in for when they are ambushed on the way back to camp. Sorry to see Wayne Rogers go; he and Hawk had quite a commradarie but B J fills the bill as well as filling himself at Rosie's. Col. Sherman Potter makes his entrance at the end surprising everyone including Radar who does not surprise easily. A new chapter in MASH begins.
  • Hawkeye misses saying goodbye to Trapper by minutes but does meet BJ as he is raging about missing Trapper. On the return trip BJ, Hawkeye, and Radar must help a farmer's daughter, a mortared platoon, and get themselves drunk at Rosie's Bar.

    Poignant and fun. "Welcome to Korea" is bitter episode in that Henry is gone, Frank is now in charge, and Trapper is shipped stateside. But it manages to remain lighthearted despite all of this and the introduction to BJ is one of the greatest in TV history. But it is not until the scene where Hawkeye, Radar, and BJ are helping wounded soldiers from a mortar attack that this episode becomes a masterpeice. From Hawkeye and Radar scrambling between downed soldiers, BJ's sprawl in the mud, and his reaction at the horror of war, it becomes apparent that MASH is something special. Finally, the episode wraps in fine form with the wonderfully insane bar scene and BJ's meeting with "Ferret Face".
