Default M*A*S*H / Season One Discussion

I thought we could discuss each season at a time. So if people respond, I'll keep doing this up until the final year.

Season One: 1972-1973
Captain Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce
Captain "Trapper John" McIntyre
Lt. Col. Henry Blake
Major Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan
Major Frank Burns
Corp. Walter "Radar" O'Reilly

[Recurring Characters]
Spearchucker Jones
Father Mulcahy
Maxwell Klinger

001. M*A*S*H -- The Pilot
002. Henry, Please Come Home
003. To Market, To Market
004. Germ Warefare
005. The Moose
006. I Hate a Mystery
007. Chief Surgeon Who?
008. Requiem for a Lightweight
009. Cowboy
010. Yankee Doodle Doctor
011. Bananas, Crackers and Nuts
012. Edwina
013. Dear Dad
014. Love Story
015. Tuttle
016. The Ringbanger
017. Dear Dad ... Again
018. Sometimes You Hear the Bullet
019. The Long John Flap
020. Major Fred C. Dobbs
021. Sticky Wicket
022. The Army-Navy Game
023. Cease-Fire
024. Showtime

In my opinion, the five best episodes of the first season are:

-Henry, Please Come Home
Henry gets a promotion and leaves the 4077th. With Frank in charge, Hawkeye and Trapper go to Henry and beg him to return.

-The Moose
Hawkeye and Trapper are offended by a Sergeant keeping a "Moose." So they try to use their coniving ways to free her.

-I Hate a Mystery
The gang at the 4077th accuse Hawkeye of stealing.

Hawkeye creates the character of Tuttle and everyone believes he exsists.

-The Long John Flap
During freezing weather, Hawkeye's long johns get passed around to everyone at the 4077th.

I know "Sometimes You Hear the Bullet" is one of the more popular episodes, but I liked the above five more.

So what do you think of the first year?
