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

As a rule in the service, a person is only awarded one Purple Heart (the first time they're wounded) and then oak leaf clusters for subsequent injuries. However, multiple characters throughout the series have or receive more than one purple heart. 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.
