Default Mash (The TV Show)

Anyone here a fan of MASH? It's probobly my favorite TV show of all time, truly amazing. The only thing I wish I could change about it is the laugh track, it ruined it sometimes. Aside from that, the show get's a big 10/10 and deserves no less. Also, it contains my second favorite series finale of all time (BSG beat it)

MASH is awesome.

You can turn the laugh track off on the DVDs go to the language options.

M*A*S*H* is also my alltime favorite TV show. I loved the humor and the drama and the characters.

My favorite characters were probably Winchester and Hot Lips.

Winchester because despite his blue-blood attitude, he also had a strong sense of honor and right and wrong.

Hot Lips because despite her often hardened demeanor lay an angel of mercy and compassion, and sometimes wisdom.

I have all 11 seasons in the special box set DVD collection "Medicine and Martinis".

Think one of my favorites was the Christmas episode with the chocolates.

It was okay. The times MASH really shone was when they began playing around with the format. I loved The show which was told from the POV of the wounded man lying in the bunk... the ones that were styled after the old wartime newsreels, the episode where one of the men who died was hanging around as a ghost, the one where they were racing against time (the clock on the corner) to find a replacement vein to save a man's leg... That sort of thing.

It was in those shows that they tried to find new ways of expressing the drama.

My all time favorite episode? When Hawkeye piles up the jeep, and spends the rest of the show talking to himself, to keep from falling asleep with a concussion... (which would lead to death) and only a family of Koreans who don't speak english as his audiance.

I enjoyed MASH as well. I also loved the ending. Second only to The Mary Tyler Moore show's ending. When Ed Asner made the statement "I treasure you people" It broke my heart. Both good comedies.
