Storyline

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

Potter, BJ, Winchester, and Hawkeye are saying their goodbyes to Margaret. When she and Hawkeye begin kissing passionately, the other three become uncomfortable and look away; BJ slowly removes his hand/forearm from Winchester's shoulder (where he had placed it, comrade-style, a few moments earlier). The kiss continues, and BJ again slides his forearm off Winchester's shoulder. See more »

The end of the best show on TV
28 February 2005 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

I can see why people didn't like the later episodes of MASH when it became very preachy and dramatic as opposed to a comedy series. personally I thought it was great from start to finish. the ending was sad in some ways and very happy in others. You knew these people would not be friends back in the states but here they are like family in Korea. I especially loved how Klinger had to stay in Korea after his years of trying to get out. The finale was, and still is, the most watched sitcom event in the world (in fact, only various FIFA televised events have drawn a higher viewing audience around the world) and I think that says a lot about it. It put the finale of Seinfeld to shame (now THAT was a let down) and no television show has ever come close to the quality of MASH. A great end to a great show.
