Thanks to Hallmark Channel and my dad, i have seen the complete run of M*A*S*H more than i have seen my favorite movie. and I have noticed something. There's a double standard. Alcohol is a dominant element of the show. Take a quick look at this list: 1. Hawkeye's still 2. Colonel Blake/Potter's liquor cabinet in the office 3. Officer's Club 4. Winchester scheming for Napoleon Brandy or rare wine 5. Potter's ceremonial bottle of wine from WWI 6. Rosie's Bar 7. Just the amount the characters drink. Now, with all that, i have found it amusing as hell that in at least 3 episodes (off the top of my head) the show has tackled alcohol abuse. of those three, only one involved a main cast member- when Hawkeye chose to quit for a week- and the others took a moral high road. what i don't get, is that it was okay to show the main crew drinking the world under the table and yet a nurse empties a bottle in a storage room, she has a problem called alcoholism. am i the only one that thought it strange the show could present things that way? any thoughts on this?
