Storyline

The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is stuck in the middle of the Korean War. With little help from the circumstances, in which they find themselves, they are forced to make their own fun. Fond of practical jokes and revenge, the doctors, nurses, administrators, and soldiers often find ways of making wartime life bearable. Nevertheless, the war goes on. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

Of all the main cast who "go stateside", only Trapper John's return is not the result of a specific event. Lieutenant Colonel Henry Blake was going home, but his plane was shot down, killing all on-board. Major Frank Burns gets transferred home after having a nervous breakdown. Corporal Radar O' Reilly goes home, but only because a beloved uncle has died, and Radar gets a hardship discharge to return home and tend to his family's farm. See more »

Goofs

Two sets of the camp were built, one in the outdoors, and one within a studio. This is apparent in numerous episodes when the characters are standing "outside" in broad daylight, but each cast member has numerous shadows as a result of studio lights shining in different directions, as well as an echo within the studio that is not audible on the outdoor set.

One of a kind
6 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

M*A*S*H is truly a one of a kind show. It combines both comedy and drama to form a rare type of show that comes along maybe once or twice every decade. You know, the ironic thing is that the series itself lasted more than three times as long as the actual war. M*A*S*H will always have a life in reruns.
