Storyline

When a new squad member named March suddenly kisses a nurse at the evacuation hospital, it shocks everyone, until they learn the two are married. During the night, Kirby sneaks into the French village to carouse but is beaten up in a fight. The next morning he's AWOL, forcing March to take his place on a patrol where he is severely wounded and sent to the same aid station where his wife is working. While Kirby is recovering from his injuries, he discovers March's wife is really in love with the surgeon at the hospital. Written by Clintessence

M*A*S*H* Tune Up
13 March 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

In what at times looks like a tune-up for his later work in M*A*S*H*, Robert Altman directs this story about March (Jeremy Slate) one of the members of the squad, who runs across his war bride (Peggy Ann Garne) working at a local Army hospital unit. What March doesn't know is that his wife is having an affair with Captain Ayers (William Windom), who eventually must operate to save March's life.

It is a little soap-opery, but the script is done well. Jack Hogan again gets to play Kirby as a major horn dog, going AWOL to pursue a local french hotty (Marie Gomez) which leads to him getting beat up and unable to go on patrol. This leads to March replacing Kirby on the patrol and getting severely wounded in the process.

Although everyone is pretty solid in this episode, and its always good to see William Windom in action, this isn't much more than a well done but mild melodrama.
