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

CBS forced MASH producers to use a laugh track. Comedies without either a studio audience or a laugh track just weren't done in those days. Though MASH producers Gene Reynolds and Ken Levine fought it, and were able to eliminate laughter in the operating scenes anyway. And while the show started with a full on laugh track, it got quieter and quieter as the show wore on, until the last couple seasons when it was a faint chuckle track. See more »
There was a reference to the movie The Blob, which wasn't made until 1958, well after the Korean War ended. See more »
Attention all Allied personnel! There are only about half a dozen stars visible, sky-wise. I am directly under the brightest one.
Very good, Frank.
They'll start looking for us in Bethlehem.

The pilot episode's original opening title sequence was edited out of all versions in syndication. It is replaced by the standard opening title sequence used during the remainder of the series run. The original opening is only available on the OOP Columbia House and 2002 Fox Video VHS/DVD releases. See more »
In the UK the MASH series has been released on DVD.
I know that this is just opionon but I think that the show was and still is just amazing. So many times people in the UK think that Amercian comedy is to sweet and syrupy.
If that is the case MASH is the one that proves them all wrong. I used to watch the show as a teenager and loved it. At the end of series 3 Henry leaves and that is just so well written and well acted. That is one of the best testaments I could ever give to a TV show, you grow to love the character and personally I cried the first time and I cried again when I say it today.
It is a totaly fantastic show and it is clear why it ran for so long. I doubt that anything like this will ever be seen again.
