M*A*S*H - Season Seven (Collector's Edition)
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Yet Hawkeye isnt the only one feeling the pressures of war. BJ nearly drives himself to exhaustion trying to help a poor Korean family, Father Mulcahy almost gets himself killed trying to get a promotion, Charles falls in love with a working girl at Rosies Bar, and Margarets divorce is finally made official. Its all part of life during wartime.
Unlike Larry Linville's one-note Major Burns, David Ogden Stiers found new notes to play as Charles Emerson Winchester III. His character remains, as Hawkeye observes, "pompous, arrogant, conceited, and a total bore." But he's also "all right" in three of his finest half-hours: "Major Ego," in which he lets a magazine profile go to his swelled head; "Rally Round the Flagg, Boys," in which he outwits camp nemesis Colonel Flagg; and "Ain't Love Grand," in which he falls for a Korean girl he meets at Rosie's Bar (the setting for another essential episode, "A Night at Rosie's," in which the company seeks refuge from the war). The seven-year itch got to Gary Burghoff, who would depart the series in season 8. Episodes such as "Hot Lips Is Back in Town," in which Radar sweetly woos a new nurse, demonstrate why he would be keenly missed. The two-part "Our Finest Hour" is anything but. It is a rehash of the season 4 classic, "The Interview," that serves as a clip episode. This is a rare misstep in another satisfying season that did this series proud. --Donald Liebenson

Commander Pierce - Much to his own dismay Hawkeye takes charge and finds that the grass isn't greener on the other side of command.
Peace on Us - Hawkeye goes to the peace talks when they change the rules on discharge for doctors. Margaret's marriage to Donald hits a real rough patch, prompting her to get a divorce.
Our Finest Hour - The second of the documentary style shows that are shown in black and white and color. This one looks more deeply at the characters and their feelings about the war, family, and being away from home.
The Billfold Syndrome - A talented medic forgets his own name and Sydney is called in. Charles stops talking to B.J and Hawkeye after being turned down for a prestigeous post back in Boston. This gets a minor war going on between the Swamprats.
Major Ego - Charles' ego gets much higher when he saves a patient, and Stars and Stripes sends a reporter.. He sees a chance to get home. Klinger shows some of his more extravagant flair when the reporter shows up to interview Charles.
Point Of View - This show is shown from the view of a patient, for the entire show. You see a distracted Potter, and an enraged Charles. This episode was very very well done.
An Eye For A Tooth - Hawkeye, B.J, and Margaret trade a series of practical jokes, with Charles helping both sides. This series of jokes include a lemon pie, a full sized dummy, and a special mail delivery. Father Mulcahy goes on a mission of mercy after being passed over again for premotion.Read more ›
This was an all-right season, but it was Radar's final season. The character came back for his final episode (a two-part one) in the following season: season eight. A touching episode it was.
Here are some highlights, eight of the 25 from the season:
"Commander Pierce" - Hawkeye is left in charge of the camp, while Col. Potter is away, and realizes how hard the job is.
"Peace on Us" - After peace talks are stalled in Panmunjon, Hawkeye travels there himself to help out.
"Our Finest Hour" - A newscaster returns to the 4077th to do a follow-up interview with the leading characters, which in done in a documentary-style. This is a sequel to the season four episode "The Interview". This episode acts as a 'clip show' for the series (which means we see famous moments from older episodes). The highlight clips are in color, the rest of the episode is shot in black & white. The episode is an hour long.
"Major Ego" - After Major Winchester revives a dying patient with a heart massage, a photojournalist from the 'Stars and Stripes' newspaper arrives to publicize the already arrogant surgeon.
"Baby, It's Cold Outside" - Where Winchester receives a polar suit on a cold winter week, making everyone else jealous.
"Point of View" - an infamous episode where the camera throughout the entire episode is meant to be from the eyes of one of the wounded at the M*A*S*H unit. We see what he sees: arriving by helicopter, examined, being operated on, and being treated in the Post-Op unit.Read more ›

Love the series, but after only 1 or 2 uses, disks in perfect condition, like perfect mirrors, sometimes won't play, or they freeze in the middle of watchingPublished 1 month ago by Darkshaman
