Ooops a daisy. I thought the quiz was about Hawkeye. I'm surprised I got as many as 5 out of 10

5 out of 10. I even read his biography a few years back, how embarrassing

8/10. Alan Alda over acted 2 episodes I won’t watch ever again. The sneezing one. I watched it once and had to turn the volume down. Who can possibly sneeze that loud so many times. And the concussion one where he talks throughout the whole episode. Just take a breath. I always wondered if all that gibberish was him making it up as he went or was it scripted. Either way it was bad

The only episode that I ABSOLUTELY CAN'T STAND is the one about the crossword clue of tomato juice. Drives me up a wall.

I can't stand Bless You, Hawkeye. I don't even get the point of it! What does a childhood memory have to do with the Korean War?!?! I also hate the ep 'Letters'. I just wanted to scream, "SHUT THE HELL UP AND WRITE THE DAMN LETTER, HAWKEYE!! YOU AREN;T SENDING THE SOLDIERS BACK OUT, THE CAPTAINS ARE!! YOU'RE SAVING THEIR LIVES, NOW WILL YOU GO BACK TO THE WAY YOU WERE, PLEASE?!"

0 out of 0. I really don't care about that whiny, unfunny, man. The episodes that revolve around him are like fingernails on a chalkboard.

To be fair, he WAS funny....in a lot of the eps he didn't write or direct.

Alan Alda also appeared in the following classic TV shows: Sgt. Bilko, Naked City, and Route 66 (played a doctor). Why didn’t they ask me that?

Way to many M*A*S*H quizzes. Come on MeTv enough all ready!

With the extra hour at 6 and Sunday, that’s 22 episodes a week - the number in a typical season.

Yea like we need two hours of M*A*S*H every night. I t would be nice if MeTV would air Outer Limits or some other old time series. How about Mr. Ed or My favorite Martian?

We were just fine with only one hour of MASH a night, thank you.

I know what you mean. I can't BELIEVE we're back to season 10 already! It was literally the last week of November when Frank Burns left the show!

Question 10 is in error - it asks which other character was in the pilot and the finale. Father Mulcahy was also in both; George Morgan portrayed him in the pilot, while William Christopher played the part in the rest of the series (including the finale). The question would've been correct if it addressed the actors rather than the characters.

Wasn't Radar also in the pilot? After all, the first scene of the opening is him watching the choppers come in
