M*A*S*H

Dear Mildred - S4-E7

New this month Revealing mistake: When the camera is in a close up on Dan the pilot, the sound is a chopper that is running full power, but you can tell that the main rotors are turning slowly to simulate flight.

Hey, Doc - S4-E5

New this month Continuity mistake: Before the sniper starts firing, Hawkeye is carrying the two bottles of scotch firmly gripped by the necks. A second later, he's barely holding them by the caps, in preparation to drop them.

House Arrest - S3-E18

New this month Factual error: In the beginning, Hawkeye says that the patient was full of shrapnel from a claymore. M*A*S*H was set in the early 50's, and the M18 Claymore was only in the development stages in 1952, and not accepted and battle used until Vietnam in 1961.

The Trial of Henry Blake - S2-E8

New this month Revealing mistake: As Klinger flies on his home made glider it's easy to tell that it's a bad composition shot. Also, nobody moving in the shot of him taking off stopped to notice him.

Bug Out (60 mins.) - S5-E1

New this month Character mistake: At the end of the episode, while Col. Potter is in the helicopter asking where they are, the pilot says they are about 10 miles west of Inchon. Col. Potter says this is no good and he tells the chopper pilot to "head west, towards Inchon." If they are already west of Inchon, heading west will take them further from Inchon.

New this month Suggested correction: Potter tells the pilot to head to a different city, Chuksan (not sure of its spelling).

I Hate A Mystery - S1-E10

Plot hole: Hawkeye calls a number of people into the mess tent over the PA - the ones he allegedly suspects of being behind the thefts he is suspected of himself. Interestingly enough, Ho Jon, later revealed to be the guilty party, is not on Hawkeye's list - yet he shows up uninvited, just to be ensnared by Hawk's clever ploy. Note also that he had no way of knowing what the purpose of the meeting was, so we cannot ascribe to him the motive of wanting to find out how much Hawkeye knew.

Depressing News - S9-E12

Factual error: When Klinger's walking with Captain Allen and the Stars and Stripes photographer, just before their introductions to "Ben" they pass an empty corrugated box with its flap open, and the recycling symbol can be seen on the flap. Recycling symbols were not in use until about 20 years later.

The Best of Enemies - S9-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Colonel Potter and Charles exit the mess tent carrying the trays, so they can serve breakfast in bed to the winners, they split up and as Charles walks to the Swamp saying, "What a shame to have wasted all these years as a doctor," we have a great view of the boom and boom mic at the left side of the screen as it moves backwards away from Charles, outside the Swamp.

M*A*S*H - The Pilot - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Hawkeye has Lt. Dish draw the winner of the raffle, he turns the bottom of the glass towards the crowd - meaning they would be able to see Lt. Dish pick the raffle ticket that has been taped to the bottom of the glass, just like the audience does.
