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

Gary Burghoff's left hand is slightly deformed, and he took great pains to hide or de-emphasize it during filming. He did this by always holding something (like a clipboard), or keeping that hand in his pocket. See more »
In the early seasons, Vietnam-like references were often made by characters: Claiming their location was in "Southeast Asia" (Korea is in northeastern Asia) and searching for missing colleagues in "the jungle" (there are no jungle regions in Korea). 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.
