Netflix, you're the best....kinda

I just found out today that one of my favorite TV shows of all time is on Netflix. M*A*S*H is a comedy/drama set smack dab in the middle of the Korean War. We follow the lives and shenanigans of doctors, nurses and patients at the 4077th M*A*S*H, or Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, that is only miles from the front line of the Korean Way. M*A*S*H was televised for 11 years, from 1972 to 1983 even though the actual Korean war was only three years (1950-53). This show fill me with such nostalgia. I remember lounging in the basement, surrounded by my siblings, all of us glued to the TV. It was always on for a hour right around the time we got home from school. The older I've gotten, the more I've seen how M*A*S*H has really shaped my sense of humor.

Netflix has finally added this masterpiece to its instant streaming list but guess what? They thought we only needed to see 5 seasons of life at the 4077th M*A*S*H. I just don't understand; if you're going to do something, don't do it half-way. Especially when it comes to TV series.

I'll definitely be looking for MASH on Netflix. When I was growing up, the town I lived in didn't have a CBS affiliate so I never got to see the series in order, only in reruns. I hope Netflix 5 seasons are the first five and that they'll eventually add the rest.

I used to love M*A*S*H, watching it through the original 11 seasons. I am guessing Netflix will soon purchase and make available more seasons of this well-loved classic.

Hopefully Netflix will add the rest of the seasons too! Maybe they are waiting to see if the first 5 seasons get viewed.

My dad loves this show. I enjoy the occasional episode if I happen upon it, but it's not a show I ever sat down and made a point to watch. Maybe now that Netflix has it I might, who knows. But I have so much other shows and movies to catch up with! I think the only way I'd ever be able to watch it all is if I was immortal! Lol

Unfortunately, we do not have this available here.. I think this is unfair.

You and I both have same about . Add some of the series and leave you the faithful subscribing viewer wondering ... I can't stand that!! If you're not going to put all the seasons on - don't put any!! It's so irritating!!! Anyway ... really liked Midsommer Murders.
