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

It's the way these yellow devils think. It's burned into their brains. Kill Americans, kill, kill. They don't respect human life the way we do. I'd like to take him out and shoot him.

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.
