The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is stuck in the middle of the Korean war. With little help from the circumstances they find themselves in, 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

Although Gary Burghoff left the show after episode 5 in season 8, he continued to receive billing in the opening credits for the next six episodes, his name finally being removed on the opening credits for episode 12. Co-star Mike Farrell tried to talk Burghoff out of leaving the show, citing the limited post-MASH careers of McLean Stevenson and Larry Linville. See more »
In Colonel Blake's office you can see a model of an UH-1 "Huey" helicopter hanging from the ceiling. However, this type first flew in 1956, years after the Korean War came to an end. See more »
I'm sick of hearing about the wounded. What about all the thousands of wonderful guys who are fighting this war without any of the credit or the glory that always goes to those lucky few who just happen to get shot?

The pilot episode opening credits (only seen in original network airings and on DVD and video releases), feature the legend "KOREA, 1950. A hundred years ago..." See more »
This is still one of the funniest shows on television, especially the first four seasons when they still had a broad sense of humor. To me the glory days of M*A*S*H ended with the departure of Larry Linville (Major Frank Burns). After his departure, especially in the final three years, the show became more and more issue oriented and pretty much lost me until the classic finale. Other than that, it was still a great show.
