Twenty-eight years after Korea the wild “Trapper John” of M*A*S*H has become a sedate hospital chief surgeon coping with a brash young upstart. There’s even a “Hot Lips” substitute, nurse “Ripples” Brancusi. Pernell (Bonanza) Roberts as Trapper and Gregory Harrison as the upstart are competent; unhappily, the show doesn’t spin far enough off to be more than a bad copy.
