M*A*S*H - The show that changed my life
30 December 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This review comes straight from the heart. I first got into the show when I was about 13 years old. A lot of things weren't going very well for me then and I was clinically depressed for a long time. It was an effort then to even imagine laughing at anything. It was during this time that I found this show. For the first time in months, I cracked a smile and then a belly laugh watching the antics in "Edwina." Needless to say, I kept coming back to see this show and for at least half an hour everyday, I was happy. This show taught me a lot, about life, about myself, about the kind of person I wanted to be. In fact, because of this show, I am what I am today - a doctor. This show helped me during a time when the future was something I didn't want to think about. Today, I'm happy and successful, all thanks to M*A*S*H. I can never thank the cast, crew, writers, directors, etc. enough for saving me. It occupies a very special place in my heart and I'll never stop loving it.
