Sets up the audience and then does not deliver.
28 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was shaping up as one of the better episodes of MASH. Excellent acting, great script, real chemistry between Colonel Potter and his female visitor, who also was a Colonel, a plausible story, two people attracted to one another and then ... nothing. What was shaping up to be an outstanding episode of television theater ended with a thud. Why the writers would want to ruin a such a great story is perplexing. The episode is building up to a climax and ends with ... a handshake between a man and woman stuck in a war zone, thousands of miles away from home, and obviously attracted to each other. There is no worse screenplay then one that sets up the audience and then does not deliver. The two Colonels were primed for action and then the writers pull the fuse and create a dud. Ugh!
