A serial stunningly comical crazy moments but also moments quite dramatic! I would revisit anytime with pleasure. Those who have loved Alan Alda recommend his memoir, "Do not you ever stuffed dog" where you can find plenty of traditional ingredients of this successful series! More than a film "sweet" or funny, warm MASH talks about conflicts during the Cold War.
So MASH manages to coalesce views of American society during the war in Vietnam, we talk about the Korean War. Show fascination lies precisely in the fact that he chooses to deal with a problematic topic in an intense period issue, and does it with humor, irony and subtle imagination.
When there was no escape, saving the absurd becomes the only real solution.
An American serial that, unlike many others, can be understood in several notes at different levels and with different shades, MASH worth seeing even 20 years after the Cold War. I cried, I laughed, I waited, I rushed, in a word captivated me.
A special humor, excellent actors, continuity concept. Under fire bombings field hospital is operating normally.
"Hot Lips" is to add color.
But her mere presence makes the morale of the wounded to be high. Sometimes it raises morale surgeon who has always conflicts because they do not appreciate the humor, though sometimes Hawkeye try his tactics typical of her but without success because Major Burns, which he represented in film as a soldier typical career lacking medical or military qualities and knowledge and her lover Hot Lips- Hulahan's known though is married to his village and his mind goes very slowly (if it go?), or is even fooled! I grew up with acst series. I would like very much to see it again.

Absolute favorite! The characters are great and after a while, they are like family.
Watching Abyssinia Henry still makes me cry every darn time.

Didn't like the final episode. A 2 hour movie changed the format timing. But loved the show for 11 seasons.

What can I say, MASH was the show my father watched all the time when he was alive, and often we would watch it together and I would get a glimpse of his lifetime with a tinge of the modern attitudes always in the background.

Truly EXCELLENT series! One of those few shows that perfectly summarises happiness and true drama. I felt for the characters. For Radar, Hawkeye, BJ, and everyone else! (except Frank - too annoying) The set was good. Writing was great. It was natural without being complicated. It was clever without being OTT. One of my favourite series EVER!

Great writing and incredible cast. Watching the same episodes over and over again and they are still just as hilarious as the first time. A show of the highest caliber.

Lost track of the number of times I've seen this. Henry's death still brings tears to my eyes, along with the closing scenes.

I grew up on this classic show. It is a dark comedy that I honestly didn't appreciate until I watched the reruns.
