    Not only I am sitting at home enjoying MASH Season 1, but an insert says that the 2nd season will be released on May 3rd, 2002. I am psyched. That means roughly 3 seasons a year for 4 years and the whole collection will be out. That means I will have MASH's 11 seasons before Stargate SG-1 six seasons.

    Anyway thought I would pass on the good news.

    Thanks for the good word, Mark! I was hoping they would bring out more than one season a year, or I may not live long enough to see them all![​IMG]

    Yeah, just got season 1 yesterday and am thoroughly enjoying it. I will be ending my collection with season 3 or 4, depending on when Wayne Rogers and Maclean Stevenson left the show. I really only can watch M*A*S*H with the original cast - I never liked BJH, etc. So, my collection will be complete in the near future!

    Anybody else miss their green M*A*S*H t-shirt and know where to get a new one?

    Wouldn't that mean it would come out on a friday? Mine just says it is coming out in may. Either way, it is great news, it would take a while to get them all with only one or two a year.

    I saw this insert also stating May as the release date for season 2, which now seems kind of obvious (Memorial Day). I expect November to be the release date for season 3 (Veteran's Day).
    Anyway, I'm really glad FOX included this coming soon insert, if for nothing else, to cut down on the number of posts asking when the second season of MASH is coming out (like the Simpsons posts I keep seeing)!
    Oh, and this Season One set is awesome! Thanks FOX![​IMG]

    As far as I am concerned, the seasons with Henry Blake and Trapper John are the only ones to buy.

    Ian, I sort of feel that way too. But I do like some of the "transitional" episodes from other seasons, like Trapper leaving and BJ taking his place, Potter's entrance, Burns leaving and Charles coming in. I'm not sure if I'd want every last episode from all the remaining seasons.

    One of the episodes I still remember clearly (other then Goodbye, Fairwell, Amen) was the episode with Col. Blake being posted out of Korea, and Radar's stunned, heart stricken look as he stumbled into the OR to report the news of the Col.'s death. "I have a message: Lt. Col. Henry Blake's plane was shot down over the Sea of Japan. It spun in. There were no survivors."

    Powerful episode.

    I think one of the closest shows to reach that level with me of late was last season's BtVS and "The Body". Now to get back to the thread, I too was happy to see the "coming soon" insert in my Copy of M*A*S*H. Now if only my local store could get more copies of the Movie in stock before Tuesday...

    I'll probably buy every season. Not because I'm a completist...okay - I am a completist...but because this show has a very special place in my heart.

    About 12 years ago my mother died of colon cancer. M*A*S*H was her favorite show and I fondly remember watching an episode with her every evening during the six months she fought the cancer. (We also watched a ton of musicals - she was a choreographer. Musicals also hold a special place in my collection.)

    Like music, I often collect DVDs because of a certain emotional connection to the movie/show.

    I'll probably buy the entire series so I can decide for myself when, if ever, I feel the show "lost it."

    I think you're all nuts. The show never lost it, not once in the 11 year run! It was terrific right up until the end.

    Yes, the tone changed and so did the characters (not just people, like Burns to Winchester and Trapper to BJ and Blake to Potter...but also personalities, like Hawkeye and Hot Lips; they had MAJOR changes over the years the show went on).

    But the popularity remained high. In fact, I recall that when it was announced they would end it, there was a general outcry. BUT...everyone was getting tired and they decided to end it on a high note.

    And a high note it was. If nothing else, most of you who say you wont get the whole thing, you'll still get the last season just for "Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen".

    Now All In The Family, IT lost it!

    Yeah when they killed off Edith, that was not the right thing to do, So all in the family definately did drag on too long, but there's alot of funny stuff in between
