I loved MASH as a kid. But I was SIX. As an adult, the sexism is fairly horrifying.

More horrifying? It was considered progressive for the time because it had women in nontraditional roles.

Progressive. For the time.

Just let that sink in.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

There's a part III, if you search for it.  And thanks to Stella, I'm gonna finish the series.  Ho ho.

I haven't watched it in a while. So that may be an element.
Luckily I have a quite strong suspension of disbelief and near limitless faith in humanity's goodness (It is what i need to maintain my misanthropy, disappointment doesn't come from realism, you know.) I can watch Starship Troopers and like it for it's edgy mockery of propaganda. I watch Arnold Schwarzenegger fo their philosophical messages for fuck's sake. MASH is comparatively easy.

Progressive for the time is a horrible thought, I'm just glad we progressed quite a bit further.
