MASH (47:54) This podcast is rated R for foul language.
The ‘70s are upon us! Bring on the best decade in film history. We kick it off with Robert Altman’s funny war blockbuster which inspired the beloved TV show. It has some unforgivable “isms” though. Hit that play button on our 79th T100P ‘cast to get the bloody skinny. And order yourself some Sparkplug Coffee! Also…for those who didn’t know, “MASH” stands for “Mobile Army Surgical Hospital”. So there!
