Rank #12: Forgotten TV ep 24-AfterMASH

Podcast cover
Read more

The short lived CBS MASH spin-off series AfterMASH is considered, including a brief overview of the origins of MASH, an episode review; and many hard to find details, facts about the show, and bits of trivia are divulged. 

Correction: I am likely in error regarding my conclusion that ep 21, By The Book was 'pulled' from airing on 3-5-1984. While it is true no English language US recording seems to have surfaced of this episode, multiple newspapers have By The Book listed on the daily TV listings for that date. In addition, David Goehner states he remembered seeing it; and MASH4077tv.com lists Neilsen ratings for the episode from that date.

  • Me & The Chimp theme
  • Makin' It theme
  • Archie Bunker's Place closing theme
  • MASH 1970 film theme
  • Trapper John, MD theme
