Mash is a long running medical drama/comedy set in the 1950’s during the Korean war. The series spans 251 episodes over 11 seasons, from 1972 – 1983.
The shows finale “Goodbye, Farwell and Amen” is still to this day the most watched television episode in American history.
M*A*S*H is one of my favorite television shows of all time. I own all 11 seasons on DVD. As with all shows, each season has its really good shows and not so good shows. In it’s first year on the air 72-73, Mash was one of the lowest rated shows on the air, but during the summer (reruns) the ratings for mash picked up and CBS decided to give it another shot.
More post on some of my favorite episodes of Mash as time goes on.
