Become A Forgotten TV Producer

It has arrived. You can now support Forgotten TV on Patreon for as little as $1 a month and help produce the podcast. Over the past two years, Forgotten TV has become a leading authority on obscure TV from the 70s/80s, earning compliments from several entertainment industry professionals. During this time, the podcast has had no advertising and has averaged around $5 a month in affiliate revenue. How many podcasts do you listen to that do not begin with a commercial for a mattress, underwear, meal service, or a shave club?
Producing Forgotten TV is not free for me. What started as a weekend hobby in the laundry room has evolved into nearly a professional production with an enclosed studio constructed in my brother's garage. I now spend an average of nearly $75 a month on hosting, website domain, and a subscription in addition to the purchase of DVDs and books for research. This includes a monthly payment on new equipment/microphones I just obtained to further improve and streamline the production quality of the podcast, as well as make remote interviews and in studio guests easier to accomplish. All this is laid out on the Patreon page. 
This year, Uncle Sam has sprung a total surprise with not only no refund, but an unprecedented tax bill I will be paying out for months. Your support is greatly appreciated and with it, I hope to bring you the podcast for years to come.

Become a Patron!
If you don't use Patreon, or just want to make a one time donation, click the Paypal link below. You can also support Forgotten TV and even help program the podcast by using the Amazon Wishlist and get me the DVD of the show you want to see reviewed.

Thank you for listening to Forgotten TV!

Forgotten TV ep 24-AfterMASH

The short lived CBS MASH spin-off series AfterMASH is considered, including a brief overview of the origins of MASH, an episode review; and many hard to find details, facts about the show, and bits of trivia are divulged. 
Correction: I am likely in error regarding my conclusion that ep 21, By The Book was 'pulled' from airing on 3-5-1984. While it is true no English language US recording seems to have surfaced of this episode, multiple newspapers have By The Book listed on the daily TV listings for that date. In addition, David Goehner states he remembered seeing it; and lists Neilsen ratings for the episode from that date.
TV themes/clips used
  • Me & The Chimp theme
  • Makin' It theme
  • Archie Bunker's Place closing theme
  • MASH 1970 film theme
  • Trapper John, MD theme
