The Appearance of Harry Morgan
4 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

General Bartford Hamilton Steele arrives. He is played by Harry Morgan who will later return as Colonel Potter. He is a gung-ho character with a couple of screws loose who begins to terrorize the entire camp. He is a racist. Unfortunately, the antics that usually go over well are circumvented, and soon Hawkeye has gotten himself in trouble. One day the General decides the entire MASH unit has to move so they can be closer to the front. Of course, Hawkeye and Trapper put it upon themselves to get rid of the guy. Hawkeye is charged with insubordination and put before a tribunal. A black helicopter pilot becomes a key witness. This is the first episode of the third season but it comes up a bit short.
