I picked Hawkeye as my #1. So did 53% of viewers who took this poll. By contrast, only 16% of viewers agreed with me that Frank Burns belonged at the bottom of the list (#15).

I can't believe Haekeye has that many people who like him. Especially after seasons 8 and 9

It was hard because the first few seasons I really liked certain characters but then, I didn't.
(namely Hawkeye, Margaret, and Klinger ) Klinger's part became way too big, Margaret became too whiny and screamy, always yelling about something. And well, everyone knows what happened to Hawkeye, lol. He was once my favorite then became my least favorite.

Aw, but I love Klinger! He made the show for me!
But had to agree with you about Hawkeye! That's why I gave him an 8, right in the middle.

I was 17% similar. I only liked the first 5 seasons of MASH. The first 3 seasons had Trapper & Henry. Trapper was my favorite character followed by Frank Burns as #2. That was when MASH was a comedy. They got too serious and preachy after the 6th season. It wasn't funny anymore.

I thought it was after the 8th season

Why am I not surprised that Hawkeye ranked so high? I guess M*A*S*H fans really like Kool-Aid.

29% similar.
This was a hard quiz. I liked pretty much all of those characters in one way or another.

Not a regular but you have to love Allan Arbus ( Dr. Sidney Freedman). Favorite was Potter. Didn’t like Winchester to start with but toward the end his character changed and I really liked him.
Yes; the writers gave his character room to grow and develop - something they never did with Frank Burns. But then, Burns was an irredeemable idiot from the start.

Potter was my #2. right behind Klinger

Burns would never have been a Dr. he never was competent, someone always had to bail him out

I liked the Asian character who was always selling stuff. He was the one who carved the bust of Col Potter.
" Col. go for laugh, no get. " lol

My college roommate played 'the stuttering patient' in one of the episodes ... I think its the one where Alan Fudge thinks he's Jesus. Regardless, my roommate had David Ogden Steirs offering him a ride home after all week after rehearsals/taping. Wondering now why MASH didn't do a gay episode, since we all know 'nothing is wrong with that'.
Adamtwelvia BorisK 6 months ago
He met David Olgen Steirs? What was he like?
BorisK Adamtwelvia 6 months ago
LOL .... I think I just told you .... he was predatory.
Adamtwelvia BorisK 6 months ago
Wasn't just being nice, huh? Too bad. Sometimes they just disappoint.
Actually, there was one episode entitled "George" where the title character had been beat up by others in his unit when they found out he was gay. And when Frank Burns found out, he tried to get George thrown out of the army on a dishonorable discharge (he was eventually talked out of it).
