great viewingBy smaug (17 reviews) from newcastle-under-lyme , 27 May 2009all my family watched this avidly in the 70s. It was brilliant then and still stands up today! Pathos and high comedy mixed brilliantly and it is worth it just for hearing Hawkeye laughing as it is very contagious!! A great mix of characters and situation. Got a bit preachy in later series but the comedy standard never faltered. A must watch1
M.a.s.h - Season 2By a customer from Birmingham , 27 Feb 2009This took me back! I'm as big a fan now as I was then. Can't wait to watch all the other episodes.
Ruined by laughterBy a customer from Glasgow , 18 Sep 2007This was a great series when the BBC showed it without the canned laughter. Unfortunately this is the American version where the canned laughter is turned on at the slightest opportunity.
Classic TVBy a customer from Huntingdon UK , 24 Apr 2007My fav US comedy, mixture of light and dark comedy, with Alan Alda becoming a true genius.
Not Just another hospital drama!By a customer from Winchester, England , 14 Apr 2006Considering this was made, I think, in the early 70s the humour and perhaps more depressingly, the setting, is remarkably fresh.
The bite of the series is contrasts. The contrasts between the good done in the MASH versus the campaign that wages a few miles away that provides them with their work. The constant stream of wounded being patched up by overworked and tired surgeons is again contrasted against the humour in and out of the operating theatre.
The dark humour around the operating table is different to the jokes that are play on the cast members, sometimes mercilessly but always deserving.
The characters are also opposing, with the laid back but professional Hawkeye (Alan Alda) to the bungling by sympathetic commander, Henry Blake and the over the top gungho but incompetent Frank Burns.
But ignore the heavy undertones just laugh your socks off at the antics that these looney doctors get up to, its a good prelude to Scrubs!
