What is your opinion of the M*A*S*H movie, if you don't mind my asking?
I only watched it once, about a year ago. I don’t remember it all that well to be honest.
But I don’t remember particularly liking it. If I remember correctly it was like, all the worst parts of the early seasons and none of the fun parts. Also they gave Hawkeye the worst bucket hat in the history of television.
And my favorite part of the series is the character developement, something the movie severely lacked; It was hard to really enjoy the characters the same. The wit was less witty and the pranks were in poorer taste. Maybe I would have appreciated it more if I watched it before ever seeing the show and wasn’t constantly comparing them. But it did have good ole Gary Burghoff, which in some respects made it weirder to watch, but it was also a comfort.
I actually own the movie on dvd because it came with my boxset, maybe sometime I’ll go through and make a movie/tv show parallels gif set, that sounds fun.
