    There’s some duplication in the post. I suspect Mike Schilling of playing a meta prank due to the topic.Report

      Although now that I notice the excerpt (“A cinematic history of…cinema”), maybe Will is the one playing the prank? WE’RE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS HERE PEOPLEReport

    Paul Lynde as Loki might one of the most inspired jokes I have ever seen!

    Also the Hawkeye joke was pretty funny.Report

      I was disappointed when I saw that neither Alan Alda nor Donald Sutherland was playing Hawkeye in The Avengers.Report

      • Avatar Saul DeGraw says:

        Have you ever read the novel?

        Both Donald Sutherland and Alan Alda were probably too old for the role when they played it. The Doctors and Nurses in MASH are largely supposed to be in their late 20s and early 30s and were plucked out of their residencies.

        I also heard that the author of the novel hated the movie because it was too counter-culture and the author was a rock-ribbed Republican.Report

        I haven’t. I love the movie, though, so the author can suck it.

        I love the first 4 seasons of the show, too (as someone who suffered from insomnia pretty much from 19-35 or so, but only had cable for maybe a year or two during that period, I’ve seen every episode of MASH at least twice, probably more).Report

        The first two MASH novels (MASH and MASH Goes to Maine) are quite funny. After that, MASH Goes to XXX became a ghostwritten franchise.Report

      • Avatar Chris says:

        Maybe I’ll check them out.

        Now I will say this about the TV show: Alda and the other actors who were on the show aged more than 10 years during a 3 year war, which is pretty odd. I suppose war will do that to you, though.Report
