Storyline

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 Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

Hawkeye, in the book, was an arch conservative, and was described as beating up liberals as one of his favorite hobbies. This is a far cry from the preachy, super liberal image both the character Hawkeye and Alan Alda cultivated while this show was on the air. See more »

MASH STILL ROCKS
12 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

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.
