A Chance to Bury It All
6 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We all know about the final episode. It's a classic. This is a precursor to it. Margaret reads about a time capsule that is being put as a cornerstone to a building in Los Angeles. She decides to do the same thing for the MASH 4077. She entreats everyone to come up with something that would show what it was like at the MASH and to show the kind of people who worked there. Of course, this is a chance for the cynical to do everything they can to thwart her efforts. Their point is that the Korean War deserved no celebration, even a hundred years into the future. An act of incredible heroism by a chopper pilot puts a different slant on things. Meanwhile, Klinger may have found the love of his life, a young refugee woman. Things had kind of ground down as this puts an end to the half hour episode. Thank you for a great ride.
