Pierce, Trapper, Hunnicut, Radar, thank you... we will miss you always
Without any doubt, this is the best show ever made. The writing is incredible, and the plots are very relevant to any society. Showing the worst of man to the very best of man, this show very well described the human condition. With deep drama, and good comedy, this show takes the audience through the ups and downs of life, while showing us the horror of war, yet leaving us with hope, knowing that there is good in humanity after all. The interaction between the characters is amazing, everyone becoming a family, and something wonderful being birthed in the midst of something horrible: war. Yet, even with the anti-war message, they refrain from bashing on soldiers (as most anti-war people tend to do) and they express pride in the bravery of them, while hating the need to fight.

All in all, this is the best show ever made, and I am deeply sorry that it did not run a few years longer.

Trivia

Gary Burghoff didn't appear in the majority of season six. There are several possible theories for why Radar became scarce, one of them being burnout, which is the reason Burghoff claimed when he eventually left the show. It has also been suggested that, despite Radar being innocent, shy, and overly polite to everyone, a fan favorite, Burghoff was demanding, rude, and generally had a terrible work relationship with most of the other cast members, leading to the producers giving him an extended vacation from the show in an attempt to either help him reset his relationship with the cast, or test the waters for writing him out of the show. He was back for most of season seven, and then filmed a two-part "goodbye" episode for the start of season eight. It was moved to mid-season, and so there are several episodes in season eight, filmed after his exit, but airing before, with Burghoff's name in the opening credits.


Quotes

Col. Potter: Please excuse these two, they're themselves today.


Goofs

Several of the characters had multiple variations on their names during the series, perhaps none more so than Father Mulcahy. His name is given at various points as John, John P., Francis, Francis John Patrick, and John Patrick Francis


Crazy Credits

The pilot episode opening credits (only seen in original network airings and on DVD and video releases), feature the legend "KOREA, 1950. A hundred years ago..."


Alternate Versions

The episode "The Army-Navy Game", features a jazzier version of the opening theme.
