  • I believe this might be the very first bit that was just about him where he wasn't just part of someone else's hysterics

      M*A*S*H: Life with Father is one of those shows that makes me stop and shake my head. During the entire half hour show, Henry Blake (McLean Stevenson) is all upset because of a letter from his wife. Actually, at first he’s happy about it because she tells him that if he should want to have an affair, it’s okay. There’s more to it, but that’s the gist of

      it. Then, though, Henry’s glee turns into suspicion. After all, why would his wife suddenly tell him that? Sure enough, he gets all out of sorts about the possibility of his wife having an affair.

      All things considered, Henry Blake had no right to question anything his wife did, not with all the affairs he’s had while in Korea. The outcome of this little plot doesn’t matter really.


      • I just found it to be very hypocritical, and it turned me off big time as a result.

        Then there was Father Mulcahy who finally got a tiny subplot all of his own. I believe this might be the very first bit that was just about him where he wasn’t just part of someone else’s hysterics. His crisis had to do with a letter he got from his sister,

        the sister. William Christopher was perfect as Mulcahy. He has a great scene with Stevenson where they are having a conversation, only neither is listening to the other. It’s like a crazy duet, and it’s a hoot.

        The very last scene is a hoot, too, or maybe that should be a lot of hooves. You’ll have to watch to see what I’m referring to, but it sure is funny.
