The 30th Reunion Special features all the main stars (except the deceased McLean Stevenson and Larry Linville, even though there ARE interview clips of those two presented here) along with Gene Reynolds, Larry Gelbart, Burt Metcalfe and Allan Arbus (Dr. Sidney Freedman); Mike Farrell hosts this special, which aired in 2002. It's good to see Wayne Rogers and Alan Alda together again, although grayer. Loretta Swit still looks hot, but is that Botox or a face-lift? Jamie Farr never seems to age and Harry Morgan looks pretty feeble, yet feisty. Gary Burghoff is chunkier but still carries that sweet "Radar-ish" aura. William Christopher looks great as well, and there are times when he shoots the others a frustrated "why-did-you-tell-them-that?" glance when some Father Mulcahy behind-the-scenes anecdotes are told. If you've never heard David Ogden Stiers' real voice, you'll be surprised how much he does NOT sound like Major Winchester! The cast also tells us how much they loved working with Larry Linville (Major Burns) as his real personality was the complete opposite of ol' Ferret-Face. This Reunion Special is the best "extra" in the set.
"Memories Of MASH" is an old TV special, hosted by Shelley Long, probably due to her success on "Cheers."
The bloopers are good, but not enough of them.Read more ›
I bought season 11 after buying all the others in order and I thought I had seen in the store that there were extras on it. I got home and noticed there weren't any. I reasoned that MASH was good enough without all of the extras on it's own.
I saw this in the store and thought it was the same as the one I already had but cheaper ($14.95 while season Eleven is usually around $19.95) and then realized that this was the finale plus assorted extras, not season 11.
The best of the extras is a "Biography" of MASH from the Biography channel giving a pretty good timeline of MASH from book to movie to tv and the recruiting of and eventual departure of certain key members of the cast. Even the failed spin-off, "AfterMASH" is recalled here.
The 30 year Anniversary Special reunites the cast, minus Larry Linville and Mclean Stevenson who had passed on.
Also noteworthy is an earlier special hosted by Shelley Long (Diane Chambers on Cheers).
The rest of these extras are a little on the tedious side:
There are some bloopers mostly reaturing Alan Alda and Mike Farrell. These are bloopers that repeat the same scene and the same mistakes too many times and should've included the other cast members as well.
A segment of PSA's (Public Service Announcements) for charities featuring Mike Farrell which made me wonder if the dvd player was stuck on repeat. Each PSA is practically a carbon copy of the one before it and when shown back to back the effect is almost annoying.Read more ›
I did collect the third season of M*A*S*H (my favorite overall), but I was hoping to add "Goodbye, Farewell & Amen". This is the motion picture lengtht series finale to the greatest comedy-drama ever filmed. Unlike many series enders this one nicely wraps up the futures of the characters and, after waiting for the war to end and to go home, it finally happens.
I only wish on this DVD set they would have included all of the "After M*A*S*H" episodes, that series was not popular at all at the time of its original airing, but for those of you who have collected all 11 seaons why not have the spin-off?
I am glad to see "Memories of M*A*S*H" released to DVD, as I think that is the best "M*A*S*H" reunion special featuring interveiws with many of the cast members who have since passed away.
Then I actually walked into the store on release day, and balked at that expensive bone.
Objectively, this is a fine set for both the casual and hardcore fan. Tying the bonus materials to a series finale release draws in additional sales that wouldn't be possible if this was the bonus materials alone. It's a gift set, if you will. Nice slim packaging, nice graphics. The best-produced MASH set outside of the Martinis and Medicine box. You kinda wish the other seasons were this slim.
Fox also did a great job digging through the archives for material. All the major documentaries are here, including Memories of Mash, the 30th reunion, the A&E special. The docs rely too heavily on series clips at times, but otherwise the info is there. There are classic PSAs and episode promos, and the legendary unproduced script where two nurses trick Hawkeye into thinking he's gotten them both pregnant (it was deemed too risque to film, and it's a hoot to read). There's also a blooper reel, but it's a fraction of the known bloopers out there. What happened to the other stuff? About the only other thing I would've liked to see would be the IBM commercials starring the MASH cast, but Fox probably doesn't own those.
So it's a great, comprehensive, inclusive set of extras - but again, it's a heavy sticker price!Read more ›
