In this final episode, the staff of the 4077th M*A*S*H unit find their lives no less hectic despite the fact that it appears that the war may soon be over. Until then, the staff must deal with events like Hawkeye has been temporarily institutionalized due to a nervous breakdown, Winchester has finally found people who share his taste in classical music and Father Mulcahy has been permanently deafened in a mortar attack. At last, the ceasefire is declared and the staff must come to grips with the fact that this time in their lives is over. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

In 1983 a spin-off to M*A*S*H called After MASH (1983) was aired. It was a sequel focusing on the M*A*S*H characters of Klinger, Colonel Potter and Father Mulcahy who, following the Korean War, end up working together in a VA hospital in the US. In its first season, it did well enough to be renewed for a second year but it was then put up against The A-Team (1983) on a rival channel, lost heavily in the ratings and was cancelled. Some commentators have suggested that this was indicative of the mood change in America at the time, M*A*S*H doing hugely well during the presidency of Jimmy Carter when the country was ridden with liberal angst and self-doubt but losing out to the macho jingoism of 'The A-Team' once Ronald Reagan took power.

Goofs

Colonel Potter's horse, Sophie is supposed to be a mare. In the shot of Potter riding "her" away from camp, "she" is definitely a stallion. See more »

Quotes

B.J.: Ah, I wanted to leave you a note before I left, I just didn't have the time.
Hawkeye: I didn't even know you were gone. I thought you were in the bathroom.

A great ending to a great series
23 April 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This finale has more farewells, heartwrenching, sad bittersweet ones, fine moments and character moments in its 2 hours plus than most series I've seen since period. I always get a lump in my throat and a tear in the eye when they do the farewells, esp. Potter to BJ and Hawkeye.

For some reason, they simply do not make series TV like this anymore. Why is that? They oughta. Tv is much more for the worse without shows like MASH.

**** outta **** terrific.
