A word about my good bud BJ

I am a M*A*S*H fan, anyone I know can second that (especially my dog, who's name happens to be Hawkeye). I was SO happy to see Mike Farrell on The Hour tonight, so ecstatic in fact, I sent the show an e-mail yesterday about how excited I was about seeing it today. Does that sentence make sense? Oh well, you're all understanding people.

Mike Farrell was, so obvious to anyone from that generation, or even to the re-run teens like me, BJ Hunnicut on M*A*S*H. I knew that Farrell had been working as an aging veterinarian on 'Providence', and that he cared for Canada's environment more than most Canadians do, appearing on commercials for the Nature Conservancy of Canada. But what I didn't know that he was also was a political activist, like George said, speaking out against capital punishment, and forget Korea, Farrell now opposes a new war, Iraq. But I guess you all knew that, since you watched The Hour (why would you be here otherwise?).

But did you know that Farrell also is an activist for legalized abortion, gay rights (specifically for teachers), and the prevention of spousal and child abuse (basically for all the stuff you never talk about in Social class)? These are the things that make Mike Farrell really awesome. Not only does he use his influence well, but he doesn't flaunt his power, something some other Hollywood stars do.

Personally, Mike Farrell goes on my list of top ten cool celebrities, along with George Clooney, Alan Alda (can you say Equal Rights Amendment?) and Paul McCartney.

Thumbs up, George, once again The Hour has made an excellent choice in who you interview. You guys never cease to amaze me.

Today's show was real good!
I used to watch M*A*S*H religiously every weeknight in India. It was good to see BJ today.

The blog looks cool! Kudos!

I never cared for his character on the show that much and last night I realised that it was the porn-stache he used to sport which bothered me. He looks so much better without it.

I am so shallow.

Barbara, try watching more of seasons four through six, BJ didn't have his moustache then. Maybe he'll grow on you...
Jas, I used to watch M*A*S*H religously, too! You get addicted to it so easily! I started watching The Hour religiously instead, because I had seen every episode of M*A*S*H at least three times! Crazy, I am.

Drugs are just bad, you should try to use Herbal Alternatives as a temporary replacement to loose the dependance!

I wish I could blog as good as you, but what I can do is give you a nice Guitar Lesson!
