AfterMASH: Season 1 Reviews

May 5, 2021
The script was very crisp, very sharp, very [Larry] Gelbar-tian, with Klinger seeming to have inherited most of Hawkeye's wisecracking lines. But the fun was spread around, with Kemp in particular, just a howl as the hospital's snippy snot.

The spinoff has some of the same warmth, humanism and dark humor, as well as a little of the old dialogue... And there are anti-war sentiments and a special sensitivity to women's issues, but the characters who best expressed these ideas are gone.

What AfterMASH has going for it is great lines, substantial social perspectives and a fairly decent premise. What the opening episode lacked was a sense of continuity, timing and plot development.

Everything about the show evoked period, often with elegance, and the supporting cast the producers have assembled around the three M*A*S*H holdovers look superb.

The show is well-written, introducing comedy where it's appealing and drama when appropriate. The old characters will be missed, but the new bunch seems to fit in at General Pershing.

AfterMASH's blend was as sweet in many ways as the old one. Gelbart wisely concentrated most of the debut hour on Potter, the most interesting of the three remaining characters.

Saved from being hospital-comedy cliches only by scripter Gelbart's deft touch. But one wonders if even he can make relatively benign battles against bureaucracy... compelling enough for AfterMASH to enjoy long-term success.

Pleasant, moral, occasionally funny. It will take a while to find its own voice, but at least it is searching for one.

AfterMASH is saddled with three lead characters who functioned only intermittently well in bit roles in the original. As leads, they are at best flimsy, at worst, bland and boring. In addition, none has any real comic possibilities.

AfterMASH seems to have preserved the yechy sanctimoniousness of M*A*S*H without finding a new equivalent to its compensating sardonic humor.

Harry Morgan, one of my favorite supporting actors, made an invaluable contribution to MASH. But even with help from his very accomplished Korean War colleagues Jamie Farr and William Christopher, he isn't strong enough to carry AfterMASH.

What the show lacks is bite. There's no anger in it, no outrageousness. Everybody is nice.
