Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen: M*A*S*H* Finale to Air on MeTV on Veteran’s Day
What do the city of Katy and a comedy/drama about a MASH unit in Korea have in common? To the naked eye, not much. To the clothed eye, well, still not much. But that’s never stopped me from pretending that two totally different things do, in fact, have many similarities.
Both have the letter ‘a’ in their name… AND IN BOTH INSTANCES THE ‘A’ IS THE SECOND LETTER. Coincidence? Okay, yeah, it is. BUT STILL… (cue ‘Twilight Zone’ theme)
And each depends on the other. You’re probably thinking, What is this bizarre voodoo of which you speak? Aye, cher, it’s rather simple: The city of Katy is sponsoring this 3-hour special featuring the highest rated episode of any television show finale EVER, with additional behind-the-scenes footage and interviews, on Veteran’s Day (November 11th) starting at 6 PM on 57.4 (over the air) and on xfinity channel 311. Without the show, there is no special sponsored by the fine folks of the city of Katy; likewise, without the city of Katy, there is no M*A*S*H* finale with bonus features airing FOR FREE on Veteran’s Day.
A dictionary definition of the term ‘symbiotic relationship’ if ever there was one.
Rescue yourself from ordinary TV on Veteran’s Day and salute the fine folks of the city of Katy, TX, as they bring you “Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen,” complete with bonus material, starting at 6 PM on MeTV!
In all seriousness, the horrors and tragedies of war in no way resemble anything other than the horrors and tragedies of war. The sacrifices of all who served are acknowledged and respected. But if I can bring a smile to anyone who endured that trying time, well, mission accomplished on my end— it truly is the least I can do. And a big THANK YOU to each person who has or ever will answer the call to serve our country.
The Mash Finale is brought to you by The City of Katy!
