A Gem Of A Show
on August 17, 2010
At last, Season Four is released. This season was a turning point in the show and the laughter slowly gives way to the seriousness of relationship troubles as this season draws to a close.
Much could be said about the last three episodes of the fourth season. Suffice it to say, these three shows, a trilogy story arc within the greater arc of the series, really bring home the reality of marriage - the side you never see in most series, let alone a sit-com. But, as we all know, this was more than just another sit-com. As M*A*S*H became more than a series of setups, prat falls and yuks featuring doctors at war, MAY demonstrates the depth and range of the actors, giving them dialogue that was about as close to "real" as you can get during the park bench scene. Chilling stuff.
And with Season Five slated for a late 2010 release, it appears the powers that be are beginning to hear our cries for getting on with finishing the release of the remaining seasons. Let's hope seasons six and seven won't be another two to three years in the offing.
