Great Work!

I’m a little late to the MASH Matters podcast...and probably the podcast party in general. I’ve been listening to the first season, and I am very impressed!

MASH, in my family, now goes back three generations! (Queue the old people jokes!). I was born in 1976, and literally grew up watching MASH with my mom. We watched the final episode of MASH together when it first aired. I know, as young as I was, most of the jokes, as well as the more serious commentary about war, the human condition, etc, went right over my head. But, there is something to be said (in a good way!) for an adult show that can capture and hold the attention of a five year old!

Of course, as the series went into syndication, and I was growing up, I would only catch episodes here and there, but still did, whenever I could. The next stage of my fandom started when the DVDs finally came out. I eventually collected all of the seasons, as well as the final episode with special features (cast interviews, blooper reels, etc). Of course, I watched them. At this point, I had a young daughter, and she began to watch them with me. We had a ball memorizing lines, and anticipating them when we re-watched an episode for the zillionth time. We would quiz each other on MASH trivia. Fast forward about 10 years, and my daughter leaves for college. A few days after she left, I realized that she took my MASH DVD collection!!! Not nice, but I had to laugh.

Of course, now we both stream the episodes on Hulu. I think we agree on our favorite line in the whole series: Hawkeye’s speech to Frank about not carrying a gun. We both don’t like the episode Dreams. But we both watch the series over, and over, always laughing at the same lines, and feeling heartache at the same times, no matter how often we’ve seen the episode.

My daughter was even lucky enough to meet Loretta Swit, when she stopped in Sarasota. I missed her by a week...but my daughter did get an autograph for me!

It’s been so great to listen to the stories and memories that I’ve heard so far. In many cases, it gives even more meaning to the episodes I know so well.

Can’t wait to hear more!

MASH Matters to me

Terrific work. Thanks Igor for all the stories. MASH was and still is an excellent show. Thanks Ryan for the DVD info on the laugh-track - I’ll also need to find Igor’s cookbook - fun listening!
