"Every episode clicks and they have the best episodes imaginable in this season! The cast was totally seasoned to their characters by this time! Among the best eps on here are the General Flipped at Dawn. This ep is of course the one where Gen. Bartford Hamilton Steele (three e's not all of them in a row) shows up at the 4077th and acts zanier than Klinger! He is played by Harry Morgan soon to be Col. Potter in season 4! This ep is jam packed with clever laughs and its the truest winner of them all!"
Klinger in full bloomers and I'll be seein' ya, Henry.

"The original cast was firmly established and this season gave the show's creative staff freedom to flesh out the characters and make use of jokes that were all the funnier because we already feel like we know these people.
In the Colonel Potter years - meaning the last eight years - we didn't get to see the Klinger that is in his fullest bloomers in this season. If you were a MASH afficionado and you had the task of providing a one sentence biography of every character, wouldn't your description of Klinger HAVE to include "Lebanese Corporal from Toledo who dressed like a woman in an attempt to have the Army declare him insane and sent home?" This season benefits from the contrast between the two corporals - Klinger and Radar. Radar, with his Nehi-drinking, teddy-bear hugging innocence and Klinger, wearing dresses that wouldn't have been out of place on Hollywood's Red Carpets.
The show never gives a good send-off to Wayne Rogers' character, Trapper John McIntyre. Trapper and Hawkeye's relationship was always the centerpiece of the show, until Trapper leaves, replaced by B.J. Hunnicut (in the next season).
Lt Col Henry Blake leaves this season as well, and McClean Stevenson's final show "Abyssinia Henry" remains one of the most emotional of the entire eleven-year run.
There are several events in the show's history that remain emotional touchstones, but season three began to demonstrate the depth to which the creators could blend comedy and tragedy.
I'll be seein' ya, Henry."
