Runners Up


Based on the 1970 film, which was based on the 1968 novel, M*A*S*H was a medical comedy/drama set against the backdrop of the Korean war. Alan Alda plays Hawkeye Pierce, the main character, but everybody loves Klinger, played by Jamie Farr. Klinger, you’ll recall, is always trying to get discharged, sometimes by wearing women’s dresses.

M*A*S*H’s title sequence featured an instrumental version of the song Suicide Is Painless which also appears in the original film. We didn’t really watch M*A*S*H, but we find the opening theme melancholy and affecting.


Soap was a successful American sitcom that ran on ABC from 1977 to 1981. The show was a weekly half-hour long primetime comedy and its format was similar to that of a daytime soap opera. It aired for four seasons and 85 episodes, some episodes of which were one hour long. (The hour-long episodes were later split in two, yielding 93 half-hour episodes for syndication.) The show was created, written, and produced by Susan Harris. All episodes are currently available on region 1 DVD in 4 separate box sets.

The opening narration for this show is quite bizarre. Oh yeah, it also spun off Benson.


Hell of a Disco Theme, Ponch! Did you know Estrada and Wilcox never used their guns on camera during the show’s entire run?
