    columbo is on all the time get caught up. I love watching these cop/mystery shows where there are no computers or cellphones , no gps trackers , no dna tests. They had to write an actual story.

    The book was overdone on the second mention.

    Andy Griffith Show. The best episodes "Man In a Hurry" "Stranger In Town" "Opies Charity"

    Also a big fan of "Frasier" , the first two seasons.

    Exactly. The show limped along for a decade after Stevenson left, and I tend to think of the show as a real stinker, but those first few seasons were great.

    A rare instance where we disagree. Linville was irritating, Stiers was brilliant. Harry Morgan was an old war horse from a million black and white movies and was exceptional as the colonel. Jamie Farr was just short of a comedic genius.

    Linville was a great actor - Frank Burns was irritating, but funny. Stiers was a fine actor, too, but Winchester wasn't funny. Harry Morgan, with competition only from children in a cancer ward, was the least funny person on the planet. And I remember many scenes where Jamie Farr made me crack up - first and foremost when he flew away on the glider in his bathrobe and fuzzy slippers. The one thing they have in common, besides Jamie Farr, is that they were all in the first three seasons. After that the writers toned down Klinger until he stopped wearing dresses, and stopped even trying to be funny.

    And that was the direction that MASH took after season 3 - every change made the show less funny, culminating in a series finale that literally went for tears instead of laughs.

    Blake funnier than Potter; Burns funnier than Winchester; McIntyre funnier than Hunnicutt; cross-dressing Klinger funnier than uniformed Klinger; Radar funnier than no Radar; pale, bitchy Houlihan funnier than over-tanned, sickly-sweet Houlihan, Spearchucker funnier than no Spearchucker, and so on and so on. And I don't think for a second that any of this was a coincidence. The writers, at the direction of Alda, intentionally made the show less funny so that it didn't distract from the anti-war message that became it's raison d'etre. Now, if what you're saying is that you preferred MASH the anti-war drama to MASH the comedy then we just disagree; if you thought MASH the anti-war drama was funnier than MASH the comedy, then you've lost your mind (and missed the point of the two very different shows).

    And note that I understand that this didn't all happen instantaneously. Where 90% of the shows in the first three seasons were very funny, that dropped to about 50% in season 4, and then about 5% per year every year after that. It was a long, painful decline for what had been one of the best shows on television.

    In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them....maybe you can hire The A-Team.
