The end to one of the finest TV shows in its history
17 October 2000 | by (PA USA) – See all my reviews

The successful Tv series M*A*S*H ended its long history with this two hour finale. It begins with Hawkeye (Alda) in a mental hospital after an incident. Meanwhile the war is drawing to a close and the men and women of the 4077th prepare for peace and the return to normalcy..but not until the war takes its final shots at them. This episode is still one of the most highly rated tv shows ever on a scale of one to ten..9
