Sabotage
26 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the common themes is when there are rumors that the MASH is going to be broken up. Just because Colonel Potter gets a call from a General, everyone jumps to the conclusion that there are efforts being made to steal doctors to start a new unit. A Major has come in to take a look at things and feel like Alice has just dropped into Wonderland. Of course, at some point the real war shows its head and everyone performs to the max. Charles thinks they are looking for a personal physician, and is stunned when his schmoozing does him no good. They even try to make him think they have eaten a camp dog. It's a lot of fun but totally outrageous.
