Snowthy might be the general, you might be the colonel, I’m Father Mulcahy clawing and scratching to become a captain.
I know after McLean Stevenson's career crashed and burned, he held onto a sliver of hope that one day the producers would call him up and offer to bring him back, and retcon Henry's death by saying he actually survived, washed ashore, spent time in a Korean hospital with amnesia, and eventually found his way back to the 4077th. For a working actor on a successful ensemble series to try to break away on his own, only for it to be the biggest mistake of his career, I can see why he would hold out for hope like that.I’m not sure how it would work if they managed to bring Frank back after Margaret’s divorce.
Funny you should ask that, series writer Ken Levine addressed that on his blog today:Hey Snowthy- when Radar was in the office, who’s on the P.A. “Attention all personnel! Incoming wounded!”
Can’t be Igor. He’s too busy fixing slop in the mess tent.
I think a lot of it had to do with the series ended up going on longer than any of them anticipated, so they had to take more liberties and creative license with dates and such, despite the inconsistencies and inaccuracies.One last MASH question only Snowthy might know the answer to.
How did they account for the historical inaccuracies?
I believe in the Trapper/BJ Henry/Potter turnover, the date was given as August 1952.
Then a few seasons later there’s an episode titled “1951” with Potter, BJ and Winchester. Oops! Derp.
I agree , Angelica has this unexplainable misery that she takes out on all the babies. and Penny is all ways insulting Leonard's friends to the stuff they buy, to the way they dress, and mooched off of them for free food, when they should't have gave any to her. tipical avarage mean girl free loading. I can't believe that Leonard went on and married her. I'm glad that she mellowed down somewhat in the other seasons, if she hadn't . then I would of stopped watching.Angelica- Rugrats
Penny- The Big Bang Theory
