We prefer Henry Morgan’s pre-colonel portrayal of General MacArthur in M*A*S*H to be honest, since he plays him as a complete loon – which he undoubtedly was – but as long as we’re here…Pretty standard stuff as far as this sort of thing goes, focusing much on the General’s time running Japan and stuffed with the kind of American actor you only get to see in this kind of film, like Dan O’Herlihy and Ward Costello.Read More

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
The oddest repeat of this or any other Christmas period? We had back to 1982 for this, when the lads were clearly in their imperial phase and such hot property they could get a special on primetime Christmas Day ITV, with Jim Davidson and Jimmy Cricket among their guests. LWT created a totally accurate East End boozer in their studios as well, serving real pints, but unfortunately their one inaccuracy was failing to install any toilets, so the audience ended up running up and down corridors all night. And if for some reason you can’t convince your extended family to forego Miranda to see it, it’s on again on Saturday!
