M*A*S*H

Not that I don't enjoy 'Friends' as much as anyone else, but MASH, it certainly ain't.
One would think that at least one of the innumerable French TV networks broadcasting 'Friends' at any given time of the day (Whichever time of day you turn on the TV in France, there is an episode on somewhere.) could replace it with this brilliant 1970s show, combining side-splitting dialogue with satire and criticism both of contemporary society and war in particular.

Plus, it constituted the outset of my durable affection and admiration for Alan Alda.
