no, it certainly wasn't. And especially after season 7; CBS made a HUUUUGE mistake by letting Alan Alda take over the typewriter and directors chair. Almost every other week it was "oh we're doctors and we're nurses...and we save lives which makes us so good...and death is such a bummer...and war is hell..." and on and on!

The writers in the later seasons had no idea how to write for the characters. Tonight on MeTV, Father Mulcaye told Col. Potter that he can't write to the kids back in the states because he (Mulcaye) has never saved a life. Any MASH fan knows that Mulcaye saved at least two lives outright before this episode (Letters, S9 Ep2).The soldier he and Radar saved with the treciatimy and when he realized a soldier was still alive when he was giving him Last Rights.

But instead of mentioning those heroic efforts, Father Mulcaye told a story about saving an old, drunkin' dog by getting him to stop drinking!! Absolutely embarrassing to be a MASH fan after Larry Gelbart and Gene Reynolds saw the writing on the wall and left the show.

A true M*A*S*H fan would like all the seasons, or at least most of them. There were weak episodes but no weak seasons. And to not even consider anything after season 3 (a small minority of the show's well deserved long run) is just sad. Harry Morgan and Mike Farrell were wonderful cast additions, and later on David Ogden Stiers. The entire regular cast on this show was first rate all 11 seasons.

Based on what? MASH had different producers, directors, writers, and some actors in the later seasons, so your comment is ridiculous.
