Rolling Stone Top 100 TV Shows of All Time

M*A*S*H came in at #16 on Rolling Stone's Top 100 Shows of All-Time list, which is pretty respectable since it's been off the air for so long and isn't a staple of streaming services at the moment. But, of course, I'd still place it much higher!

MASHED: A Korean War RPG

Attention all personnel! Here's a Kickstarter campaign for an RPG called MASHED, which its creators describe this way: "Experience the Korean War with the men and women of the 8099th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (MASH) in this unique historical RPG." 

The campaign still has 28 days to go, and it's already met its goal. As someone who has run several Kickstarter campaigns, I can't tell you how impressive that is. There doesn't seem to be any connection to the show (for copyright reasons, I would think), but that doesn't mean it's not an interesting endeavor. Not being a gamer myself, this project doesn't attract me as something I'd want to participate in, but it still looks pretty cool, well researched, and attractively designed. Check it out, MASH fans!

M*A*S*H Hardee's Poster

I saw this Hardee's promotional poster for sale on eBay a few months ago. The seller had no info on it, so that leaves me baffled as to the purpose of this. What's the connection between Hardee's and M*A*S*H?

Also, it's interesting(ish)--this shot of the gang is familiar to any M*A*S*H fan, except this is a painted version of the original photo. Was this ever used in another capacity? Why in the world was this painting even commissioned, when they had the photo already? Not that it's not nifty (it is), but it still leaves me baffled.

Maybe Col. Potter painted it?

Col. Henry Blake on "Cher"

The long lost footage of McLean Stevenson as Col. Henry Blake has finally surfaced, thanks to the fine folks over at Maybe part of the reason this clip--which supposedly aired just days after "Abyssinia, Henry"--was so hard to find was that it was always credited to The Carol Burnett Show (it even says so on IMDB).

But as you can see from the video above, this weird cameo was on a Cher-hosted show, mostly likely the 1975-1976 variety series simply known as Cher. IMDB lists Season 1, Episode 7 as having aired on March 23, 1975, just five days after the legendary M*A*S*H Season 3 closer. There's no mention of the appearance of course, but I feel like this is a safe bet.

A tip of the martini glass to Swamp Rat Daniel Hopmans for letting me know about this. As Hawkeye Pierce once said, I hate a mystery!

Hop Lips IPA

I haven't tried this, but I really want to. The creators, Dominion Brewing Co., say it contains "post-mash citrus." I bet it does!

The Fantastic World of D.C. Collins

This might just be the strangest thing I have ever posted on the AfterM*A*S*H blog.

The Fantastic World of D.C. Collins was a 1984 TV movie starring Gary Coleman as a precocious kid who imagines himself in all sorts of fantastical situations seen in TV and movies. Improbably, one of the places he sees himself in is...a MASH unit in 1950s Korea!

I'm not even sure where to start with this, it's so unfathomably strange. All I can do is thank Swamp Rat Steve Spatucci for sending it to me, I was completely unaware of the movie's existence. I was happier then.
