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

Three different people have been named "Nurse Baker", including a single woman, a married woman and a woman of a different race (she was Black while the other two were Caucasian). However, Baker is a popular American name, and could have been shared by more than one person in the 501st. In addition, "Baker" is the second entry in the old US Navy radio alphabet. "Able," the first entry, is the name of several nurses throughout the series. "Able" and "Baker" appear to be placeholder-type names, possibly an in-joke for military viewers. See more »

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.
