Measure This

"A device is yet to be invented that will measure my indifference to this remark."

- Hawkey, played by Alan Alda on M*A*S*H

I don't think there has ever been or will ever be a television show quite like M*A*S*H. The show as a comedy that was never afraid to tackle a tough issue. There were some really touching and emotional episodes.

It aired for 11 seasons and ran 251 episodes. There aren't many shows that have ever achieved this amount of success. This comedy/drama actually outlasted the war it was set in.

The best thing about M*A*S*H is that it still holds up today. It is not dated. The stories and characters still captivate and entertain us just as they did when it premiered in 1972.

This remains one of my top 5 shows of all time.
