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

M*A*S*H 4077th was set in a location three miles from "Uijeongbu." Today, Uijeongbu is a bustling satellite town of Seoul, with a 2nd Infantry Division of the United States Army. It also has several restaurants catering to U.S. defense personnel. They serve a peculiar stew made originally for U.S. Army personnel from SPAM and hot dogs called "Uijeongbu budae jjigae."

Throught the series, the distance between Korea and the US varies at least twice between 20,000 and 11,000 miles. See more »
The pilot episode opening credits (only seen in original network airings and on DVD and video releases), feature the legend "KOREA, 1950. A hundred years ago..." 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 »
The TV show M*A*S*H proves that laughter really is the best medicine to cure any wounds. This movie provided humorous insight to an otherwise overlooked time in American society. Every character provided a different perspective on the evils of war with their uses of satire. The script writers use satire to provide a look at the evils of war. I have seen the re-runs of this American classic series and I still find them hilarious to this day. I am so pleased that television stations decided to re air this otherwise forgotten show. I am glad that the directors and producers of this show depicted an otherwise forgotten time in American history. And I am sure that the veterans of the Korean War are happy that this show was made to show their experiences in this war and made their trials known to the public.
