Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
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

Lieutenant Colonel Blake's daughter's names were Molly and Jane, and his son's name was Andrew. Molly was seen in a home movie, and Jane and Andrew spoke with Blake by telephone, in different episodes. Blake had a son who was born while he was in South Korea, but Blake was killed before ever getting to meet him. It's unclear if this son was Andrew, or a second boy, although is likely it was the latter, as the child wouldn't have been old enough to talk with him on the phone so quickly. See more »
Dates jump back and forth during the series. Many early episodes featuring Trapper John and Henry are set in 1952 or 1953, while others with Col. Potter and B.J. are set in 1950 or 1951. See more »
How much of this can a man take? We must have seen this picture twelve times in the last month. Its a recurring nightmare with popcorn.

In the closing credits of the episode "Tuttle", "Captain Tuttle" is listed as playing "Himself". See more »
Every episode of M*A*S*H ran longer than the normal 22 minutes we see today. Each episode ran about 25 1/2 minutes, with shorter commercial breaks. The syndicated versions shown today edit out some parts of the episodes, and sometimes the "missing" footage is essential to the story. The DVD versions restore all "missing" footage and run the proper length (25 1/2 minutes). 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.
