One of the best shows of all time simply had to have one of the best reunion shows...and it did! One of the reasons it was so good: everyone showed up! As opposed to other reunion shows, there were no dead cast members, nor were there any disgruntled cast members. Everyone showed up, though looking much, much older...with the exceptions of Wayne Rogers and Loretta Swit, (Shudder)... Plus, there were no scandals, no "I had a romance with Allan Arbus" stories. Just good memories. There were several classic clips, including several clips that got butchered for syndication. A good example is Blake's sex-talk, and Trapper's "Figure A/Figure B" analysis. Then there were a few bloopers, such as McLean Stevenson and Gary Burghoff cracking up during filming of "The General Flipped at Dawn." Probably best of all, there were clips of "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen"...and because I hadn't yet seen the finale, and because in 1991, Fox wasn't syndicating that episode, it was a real treat to get a glimpse of it. The reunion was made at the perfect time. Sadly, McLean Stevenson would pass away a few years after they made this, and Larry Linville a few years later. A wonderful chance so see the members of our favorite show one last time.
