Flagg, expecting a Frank Burns-style potential collaborator, utterly misreads Charles, and pays the price.

Ah yes, that one was superb!  He played Flagg hook, line and sinker on that one!  As you say, he was the perfect foil for Hawkeye and BJ.  Frank had become far too one dimensional by that point.

I always admired the complexity of the character and Stiers' portrayal of it.  There were a number of times when he revealed an incredible vulnerability and compassion that he always seemed to need to keep hidden.

I can feel a MASH rewatch coming on.

I much preferred his Winchester to the bumbling Burns, it was a cleverly judged part and a consistently great performance. I also enjoyed Stiers in the TNG episode where he was Lwaxana's Carousel-bound squeeze.  RIP.

Amen.  His performance in TNG was superb.  In Stargate Atlantis too.  An actor of extraordinary talent that will most assuredly be missed.

That's sad. Only two comedy acts have ever made me literally ache with laughter, Laurel and Hardy, and the King of Knotty Ash. The world has become a markedly less tattifilarious place. :(

I was listening to that the other day. In university I read several of his papers. I hope that his works are published much they Feynman's have been. RIP.  :'(
