Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is stuck in the middle of the Korean War. With little help from the circumstances, in which they find themselves, 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

The social attitudes about race, sexism, homosexuality and class that were expressed by characters in the series were those of post Civil Rights/post- Vietnam eras when the series was filmed, not those of the early 1950s when it was set. As the series continued, it began to resemble a modern drama rather than a historical re-telling of earlier events. See more »

I remember watching M*A*S*H when I was in the eighth grade. I was only one year old when it went off the air so I watched a few episodes during the summer and when I had been suspended from school. I used to ask my dad was Klinger a little on the "you know" side and he explained about bucking for a section eight. Well it's almost eight years later and Klinger is all man to me and M*A*S*H is my life line. The show that get's me through those bad days when I feel alone. My sorority calls me Hawkeye b/c when I'm not drinking a martini I am plotting a good prank for someone to pull. I will forever love M*A*S*H for all the happiness it brought to me. I still remember the first time I saw "Aybisynna Henry". I think I spelled that right. It made my cry when Radar came in with the kind of news that leaves you without speech and breath. Henry made me laugh if only for a short time due to the fact that that episode was the first I saw. After awhile I was in college and M*A*S*H was on again. I started watching and from then on there isn't a day when you don't hear "Suicide is Painless" blasting in my room. Here is to M*A*S*H. You bring smiles to my face and joy to my heart and I am grateful to you.
