Each month we take a look at a TV show that DEMANDS to be Binge Watched. This time out: M.A.S.H (MASH)
Why? M.A.S.H (MASH) ran longer than the actual war it was (loosely) based on. That’s some feet and in fact over 256 episodes. Even now, 35 years plus after it left TV, MASH is screened almost daily. It was a show focused on it’s characters – be it Trapper, Burns, Hawkeye, Henry or Radar but over the shows considerable run there were really only four constants – Hawkeye, Klinger, Father Mulcahy and Hop Lips. But this was Hawkeye’s show and Alan Alda owned that role – from heartbreak to comedy Alda won numerous awards. Most people forget that M.A.S.H (MASH) was based on a equally well regarded feature film by director Robert Altman which still stands up well today. It’s a big ask to revisit such a lengthy show but this is one for train journeys and more!
