Storyline

The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is stuck in the middle of the Korean war. With little help from the circumstances they find themselves in, 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

When Col. Potter took command of the 4077th at the beginning of the fourth season, the stated date was 19 Sep 1952. This means the first three seasons and 72 episodes covered the first 15 months of the war and that the following eight seasons and 179 episodes covered just the remaining ten months. See more »

Goofs

During one scene in Col. Potter's office, Col. Potter is spelling someone's name on the telephone. Hawkeye, standing nearby, responds by chanting "M-O-U-S-E" - part of the "Mickey Mouse Club" show's theme song. The "Mickey Mouse Club" did not debut on television until October 3, 1955, more than two years after the ceasefire that ended the fighting in Korea. See more »

MASH STILL ROCKS
12 April 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the UK the MASH series has been released on DVD.

I know that this is just opionon but I think that the show was and still is just amazing. So many times people in the UK think that Amercian comedy is to sweet and syrupy.

If that is the case MASH is the one that proves them all wrong. I used to watch the show as a teenager and loved it. At the end of series 3 Henry leaves and that is just so well written and well acted. That is one of the best testaments I could ever give to a TV show, you grow to love the character and personally I cried the first time and I cried again when I say it today.

It is a totaly fantastic show and it is clear why it ran for so long. I doubt that anything like this will ever be seen again.
