The Troops of M*A*S*H Sew on a 200th Episode Hashmark and Celebrate with Bedpans of Champagne
Along the way, of course, M*A*S*H has suffered some casualties. Gary (Radar) Burghoff didn't show for the festivities; neither did Wayne (Trapper John) Rogers nor McLean (Col. Henry Blake) Stevenson. They left the show for less regimented—and supposedly more rewarding—careers and were not invited back for the party. "Everything is amicable between those who left and those who stayed," insists executive producer Burt Metcalfe, "but there's no way to keep up that close relationship after you depart." How much longer can M*A*S*H continue? "We've been blessed with a chemistry that works," says Metcalfe, "but finally, I suppose, we will reach the point where there's nothing more to be done." A final question: Could the cast handle another 200 episodes? "Sure," says Jamie (Klinger) Farr. "I wouldn't rule it out," says David Ogden (Winchester) Stiers. "You've got to be kidding," says Swit. "That would be another eight years out of my life."
