  1. Congrats on the Hulu victory! Sorry to hear they messed up “The Interview”, but it least they didn’t colorize the black and white version! Amazon Prime has colorized versions of the Our Gang/Little Rascals shorts and they look like they let one of the kids loose on the film with a box of Crayolas. Horrible.

    Sadly, the choice of color MAY be a concession to the young and narrow-minded who poo-poo black and white. I had a discouraging conversation with a young, 22 year old co-worker last week. She admitted she never watches anything made before her birth year of 1995. “Why would I?”, she asked. I’ve raised my kids right and exposed them to classic film and TV, but others sadly, have not.

    Great hearing Nicholas again!


    1. That sentiment is all too common and only cements the notion that TV and movies aren’t art to be enjoyed, but instead is stuff to be consumed.

      I think I need a Snickers bar.

  2. I agree completely that Bananas, Crackers, and Nuts is a good, but not exceptional MASH episode. My favorite scenes from this episode are both set in the mess tent. First, when Hawkeye pretends to eat a patient’s liver, and, later, when Radar convinces the visiting psychiatrist that Margaret is interested in him. In that first scene, there’s a moment when Frank and Margaret look at each other, and you can see them wondering if Hawkeye truly has gone mad. I love it.

    Also, I’m glad your streaming campaign was successful, and I’m equally glad that you already have a new campaign to fill the void. #BlackAndWhiteMASHMatters.

  3. Can’t offer anything on this episode of MASH, but it reminded me of (maybe) my favorite Alan Alda line on 30 ROCK. “I am not used to being spoken to this way. I’m a contest-winner!”

  4. Can honestly say that while I am pretty sure I have seen the vast majority of MASH episodes, I have no memory of this particular one! Oh well, would not be the first time I have forgotten something I had seen or read, and won’t be the last. (Too many blows to the head perhaps?)

    I am glad to hear about the Hulu streaming, which is great news.

    I cannot speak for anyone else, but I know that my kids understand that some movies are in black and white. I guess because of my love of older things in general they just get more exposed to them. The first B&W film I think any of them saw was the classic Them while at my parent’s house, and all four of them absolutely fell in love with Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein, to my wife’s chagrin.

    Thanks again for a fun episode, perfect length for my afternoon walk.
