M*A*S*H 7/2 '18
All seasons of MASH are now available on Hulu, so today we started binge-watching it. Season 1 is where they are working out the kinks, and finally easing up on the blatant misogyny and tail-chasin'... though I guess it is a period piece.
Either way, I love these characters so much, and Larry Gelbart is a script god.
I am happier now that the Father Mulcahy I recognize and Klinger have arrived.
The show holds up great now that we're half a season in, and it's a pleasure to watch. But you definitely have to get through the first few. Henry Blake is less of a dunderhead and more a dude; Frank and Houlihan aren't just meanies out to foil Hawkeye and Trapper, but are nuanced people.
I feel like I'm with old friends. :)
