Hauntingly beautiful, Poignant, and incredible.
20 December 2018 | by jakebirkelSee all my reviews

This is one of the best episodes of MASH. I really don't think it was meant to be funny in any way, but to show something truly terrifying. How it must be to shout at people you may know and receive no response. The writing is what sets this apart; it's so good and heartbreaking. I just can't sometimes.
