William Christopher, aka Father Francis Mulcahy from M*A*S*H, died at the spry age of 84.

Christopher’s plane … was shot down … over the Sea of Japan. It spun in … there were no survivors.

He and his wife met on a blind date, but they both regained their vision by the time they got married in 1957.

He was a descendant of Paul Revere, you know, they guy who became famous even though he thoroughly failed in his mission and got captured.  Sure, his name sounded good in a poem, so he gets all the credit.

He was known on set of M*A*S*H for being a truly nice guy.  They say that all of the love

An he could rock the… is tha a fedora?

and care that Father Mulcahy showed was truly how he was.

Alan Alda was a complete dick of course.

Then entire universe tuned in for the 2 ½ hour M*A*S*H series finale in 1983.  So many people watched it, it was rumored that 77% of the toilets in New York City  flushed right after the ending, shutting down the NYC sewer system.

This of course, was not true.  But man, don’t you wish it was?

Now, Christopher could have ended it all right there, with one of the most satisfying series finales in the history of television.

But no: enter AfterM*A*S*H!  The critically lambasted show ended up in 10th place of all network shows that 1st year.  Not bad.  Then they thought that AfterM*A*S*H would be able to take down Mr. T and the A-Team.

I pity the fool who takes on the T.  The show was cancelled eight episodes later.

This hit goes to Pirate!  Morrigan’s Mirror is on the board with 20 points!

Right now, both the Queen and Charles Manson are sick… I may be back soon…

Happy pooling,
