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

William Christopher auditioned for the role of Father Mulcahy when 20th Century Fox was filming season one, episode one, "Pilot". He decided to improvize his dialogue, which turned the producers off, and he didn't get the role, the producers went with George Morgan. However the producers were not happy with Morgan's performance in "Pilot", so when the Father Mulcahy character re-emerged in season one, episode three, "Requiem for a Lightweight", they decided to give Christopher another try.

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.
