On Vox: Vox Deium: This Is Classic TV

QotD: What television show stands the test of time?

M*A*S*H

Covering topics of war, death, life, love, loss, and even the happy stuff too on occasion, MASH not only implements the classic themes of literature and human existence but does so with poignancy and rare talent.

The writing and performances both of this show have already guaranteed it a long life.  It's in syndication somewhere, always, and has been released on video and DVD in its entirety, I believe.

I assume by "in its entirety" you aren't counting all the cut scenes to make room for the extra commercial or five.

Um, maybe n syndication, but the VHS and DVD version are intact, I hope? *wince*

Re: Gack

Here's hoping. I haven't seen either.

It makes a 5-6pm weekday somewhere near the top of the basic cable dial. And while you may laud the series, I have to differ once Alda and his unbalanced humor/morose storytelling ratio got behind the camera. Gotta use the clutch when you shift like that.

Oh, and just how many journals do you have?

Ha! Angling for a Vox invite then? I don't think you need one to get an account.
