If this was 30 years ago I would believe you. Show me one liberal who these days isn't a progressive. Look at what liberals are electing to congress these days. Its very sad, just like MASH became after Larry left. Sad, very sad.....

Most Democrats in Congress are quite conservative, and they spend far more time undermining actual liberals like Sanders, Gabbard, and Ocasio-Cortez than you think. They're too busy helping the GOPhers implement their far right nuts-o agenda.

And for the record, I've been an Independent for the past nine years officially and an indy-minded party member in one organization or another since I was old enough to vote. All the tribalistic B.S. is just that, and it's like Jesse Ventura said, the politicians are like professional wrestlers in that they pretend to oppose each other when the cameras are rolling but at the end of the day most of them are taking their money and their orders from the same corporate buyers.

Now, as to M*A*S*H*, remember that from the very beginning it was a critique of the Vietnam war, going back to the film version that led to the TV series. The Korean war, which by the way didn't have a lot of support from my parents' generation either (they were born late 30s), was the perfect parallel and backdrop for that, so I really don't see how the show getting more in line with its cinematic incarnation over time is either a surprise or something to be frowned upon if you liked the show from its early days.

Other than Joe Manchin of WV which one can you point to as being "conservative?"

I don't know about Gabba, but Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are overtly socialist. Calling anyone who doesn't agree with conservstive is just messing around with language rather than discussing politics.

Larry Linville I believe was also in one of those 80s knockoffs of Porkys or similar movies. Playing a Frank Burns type guy (principal).

Linville was great at playing at Frank but around his last years Loretta Swit said he dreaded the scenes he had to do. He left cause the character was too cartoonish. Almost unbearable to watch at times. Loretta Swit also had nice things to say about Larry, along with Burghoff.

I know that MASH is a show about war and obviously politics will inevitably become part of many discussions here - that's fine with me. That being said, let's try to get this thread back on track, which is discussing your thoughts on Larry Linville --- Thank you - HF

School Spirit, a cheesy T & A movie from 1985.

Lol. I most likely saw it on there too. Those knock off movies were pretty bad but you didnít always watch for a story lol. Iím a fan of Porkys, Revenge of the Nerds, Fast Times, Spring Break, Hardbodies.

Ed Winter (Flagg) was in Porkyís 2.

I hated Frank Burns as a character. Never thought anything more of it until now.

There are MASH books written by the cast? How did I not know this?
