TV Talk: Day 31

Tv Show: M*A*S*H

Aired: September 17th, 1972 – February 28th, 1983

About: The show follows a team of Doctor’s and support staff that are stationed in the 4077th MASH (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital Unit) in Korea.

Would I recommend: Yes, I would recommend the show.

Other Info: MASH had two spin off shows. The short lived AfterMASH and the successful spinoff Trapper John, M.D. There was also a pilot for another spin off called W*A*L*T*E*R but it was never picked up for a official series. The pilot was only shown on CBS and was never shown again. There was also a movie called M*A*S*H which was made two years earlier in 1970. So this show was adapted from the movie, and also based the book called M*A*S*H: A novel about three army doctors. One more fun fact. The show was created after an attempt to film the original book’s sequel M*A*S*H Goes to Maine failed.

TV Talk: Day 30

Tv show: Moonlighting

Aired: March 3rd, 1985 – May 14th, 1989

About: Blue Moon Detective Agency is a detective agency that solves cases with its two partners Madelyn “Maddy” Hayes and David Addison Jr. (Played by Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis respectively)

Would I recommend: For a show for its own time yes. It also breaks the fourth wall in some parts.

Other Info: Shows usually have 22 episodes but this show didn’t have all 22 episodes. The reasoning for this was because there were problems with the production, crew and producers themselves. Also, new episodes failed to air because of it. A low point for a show. Only 66 episodes were ever produced. Due to rating declines in the later seasons, the show was cancelled in 1989.

TV Talk: Day 26

Tv show: Magnum P.I.

Aired: December 11th, 1980 – May 8th, 1988

About: Thomas Magnum is a private investigator solving cases in Hawaii.

Would I recommend: Yes, I would. Its really good and I enjoy the setting, and of course the main character himself.

Other Info: There have been crossover episodes with Murder She Wrote and also Simon and Simon. Depending on the crossover the plot concluded on their shows respectively. However, for re-runs and broadcast overseas, they filmed alternate endings instead so its more of a stand alone story and it wraps things up instead of being a two parter episode.
