Trivia

John Schuck (Painless) was the first person to drop the f bomb in any movie in the film version of Mash. The only swear to be used in the series (besides "damn") was s.o.b. Hawkeye said this in " Guerilla My Dreams." See more »

Goofs

The social attitudes about race, sexism, homosexuality and class that were expressed by characters in the series were those of post Civil Rights/post- Vietnam eras when the series was filmed, not those of the early 1950s when it was set. As the series continued, it began to resemble a modern drama rather than a historical re-telling of earlier events. See more »

Quotes

Radar: Sir, I was just crossing the compound when...
Frank Burns: I have no interest in the compound.
Klinger: He has no compound-interest.

Still Funny After 30 Years
10 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This is still one of the funniest shows on television, especially the first four seasons when they still had a broad sense of humor. To me the glory days of M*A*S*H ended with the departure of Larry Linville (Major Frank Burns). After his departure, especially in the final three years, the show became more and more issue oriented and pretty much lost me until the classic finale. Other than that, it was still a great show.
