Springtime in the Pit
5 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lots takes place in this offering. It is spring and there is a lot going on. Hawkeye operates on a Marine played by Alex Karras, the Hall of Fame tackle for the Detroit Lions. Radar falls for a gawky nurse played by Mary Kay Place. He gets his hands on a book of poetry by Rupert Brooke (whom he calls "Ruptured" Brooke). The guys talk him into telling the young lady his feelings, but when it works out, it is in spite of his efforts. There is a subplot of a young man suffering from PTSD who is hugging a cat and won't let go. Of course, the totally insensitive Frank Burns treats him like dirt. Klinger hears from LaVerne and sets up a marriage over a short wave radio. Of course, he wears a full wedding dress. This is all about the things that happen when the weather changes.
