Wonderful!
18 September 2004 | by the4o77mashSee all my reviews

As an eighth grade student I've never been interested in science. Then when I started watching MASH and a couple of Alan Alda movies I was "Hey, SAF ill just turn it on to see what it was like" I was watching it and I was getting really interested into the show and I figured out i didn't like science because i was learning from a book when Alan Alda goes out and actually does it! I probably learn more from him doing it then one chapter. Then he doesn't just do it one thing he does several! He really makes me feel interest and they're some funny moments caught in there. Like his hat flying off (which some one saved) and his boot being filled with cold swamp water from a drunken forest.
