Editorial Reviews

Korea, 1950. They were a MASH (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) unit stationed three miles from the front. Incoming helicopters full of wounded brought the horrors of war to them daily and sometimes bullets flew right outside the operating room door. Occasional hilarity and constant hijinks were all that kept them sane.

Loosely based on real-life MASH unit 8055, life at the 4077 revolved around the day-to-day routines of Captain "Hawkeye" Pierce, Captain "Trapper" McIntyre, Lieutenant Colonel Henry Blake, Major Margaret Houlihan, Major Franklin Burns and Corporal "Radar" O'Reilly. Through these characters, viewers traveled beyond the long hours and the horrors of the operating room to a place where friendships were forged, laughter was found and drinks were served.

Customer Reviews

No doubt that MASH was one of the best shows ever on TV.
Elizabeth Sokolowich
To this day, I never get tired of watching it whenever it comes on, even with episodes I've seen at least a dozen times.
Patrick L. Randall
The big draw of DVD's, in addition to the Sound and Picture Quality, are the "Extras".

I'm not going to go into too many details about the series. If you're reading this, you probably already know who the characters are, what the show is about, etc.
The first season (24 episodes) is packaged on three DVDs with eight episodes per disc. The episodes are presented in airdate order. The video quality is quite good for film material from the 70s -- far better than the All in the Family DVDs. The audio is good as well.
As others have pointed out, this DVD set comes with no extras. The only modification that I make when watching this series is to turn off the laugh track. M*A*S*H was such a thought-provoking series that sometimes the canned laughter was a distraction; yet funny enough that I didn't need to be told when to laugh.
For the material itself, I give it five stars (I'd even go higher). For the audio/video quality, four stars and for the lack of extras only one star. Overall, four stars. For this price, the lack of extras is acceptable.

This first season DVD set is wonderful - The greatest 'bonus feature' the creators of this DVD series has given us is the option to play the dialogue straight without the laugh soundtrack. According to Alan Alda, the cast and crew never liked the canned laughter but CBS insisted on it. The people involved with the show felt the audience did'nt need to be told what was funny or when to laugh. Now you can watch these pristine quality episodes as they were intended - Without the laugh track (but for those who prefer it, the laugh soundtrack is also an option).
M * A * S * H Season 2 DVD is set to be released in May 2002. We're finally getting a DVD collection with the quality it deserves! THANKS!! (Let's hope more classic shows are on the way...)

Format: DVD
In 1972 America was still involved in the war in an unpopular war in Vietnam, which created an environment in which an antiwar comedy like "M*A*S*H" could thrive. The show was set during the Korean War, but the Vietnam sub-text was obvious from the very beginning. However, what we forget when looking back at the first season of "M*A*S*H" was that it was a traditional situation comedy in the beginning and that it was not, from the start, the great show that it became when it hit full stride. Larry Gelbart gets a lot of credit for creating the series and writing the pilot and the "Dear Dad" episode, but that first season Laurence Marks wrote almost as many episodes. This is of some importance because Marks had been one of the chief writers on "Hogan's Heroes," and there is a sense in which many of these early episodes are more reminiscent of that odd World War II sit-com set in a Nazi P.O.W. camp than "M*A*S*H" in its prime (the show was known as "Hawkeye's Heroes" in some quarters during that first season). Of course, the television series was also burdened with toning down the blood and sex from the Robert Altman movie on which it was based. By this point the original novel by "Richard Hooker" (pen name of Dr. Richard Hornberger) was pretty much completely forgotten except for the names and the places. Today, when you think of "M*A*S*H" you think of Alan Alda, who clearly dominated the show from the beginnig in front of the camera and would have a greater effect behind it as the series progressed.
"M*A*S*H" is one of the 10 best sitcoms of all time, and while I will gladly give the series 5 stars for its entire run, it is simply not that good that first season.

The Wayne & McLean Years.
Probably one of the finest comedy/dramas series ever made.
I'm buying the first 4 years.
Wayne Rogers & Mclean Stevenson left after the 3rd year.
The 4th year with Henry Morgan & BJ Honeycutt was terrific as well.
24 Episodes for $30. How can you beat that? The X-File Seasons Cost 5 times as much!
Don't expect any extras on this. I hear it's limited to: viewing with a laugh track or without one.
Grab it! Enjoy it!

It's a classic series with a long-lost, intelligent sense of humor not seen on TV these days. It was relevant then and still is now. It was a series with a social conscious. The DVD delivers quality better than I remember on the TV of old. Not much to say other than that. I'm still buying a season or so at a time until I collect them all.

I will say that Amazon's DVD packaging is horrible these days. When I first started buying the series over a year ago, it came in a box. Now it comes in a padded envelope! That's nuts! I have returned many, many DVDs lately because they come crushed, the inner plastic holders broken, and the DVDs scratched.

No matter what DVD you buy from them now, if it comes in an envelope - check it out immediately and return it if damaged. They pay the return postage and send you another one free of charge.

I can't tell you how excited I am to have this on DVD. I have the incomplete Columbia House VHS tapes but this collocetion on DVD obviously reigns supreme. The complete and uncut first season with the option to eliminate that pesky and sometimes insulting laugh track is a Godsend. Sure some of the first seasons episodes don't live up to later standards but we all have to start out somewhere. I love "growing up" with the characters and the production alike. The picture quality is great and the sound aint too shabby either. Without that laugh track you are able to hear and catch many subtle things from the actors that were previously ran over by the canned laughter. My only problem with this colection (and I have to say it is a big one in my book)is the same one that "eodguy2" mentioned in his review. You can not run the episodes back to back! That just aint right! You have to go back to the main menu and click the next episode. I love this package and the fact that they are in the order in which they originally aired. I hope that they release all 11 seasons (with the ability to run them all back to back without retuning to the main menu) inclucing the final episode. A few extras, commentary and the like, would be nice too. It would be a crime if they stop before finising this through. It is a blessing and a treasure to have this great piece of television history to enjoy in all it's glory whenever I want. An absolute must for any M*A*S*H* fan.

Mash RE release again ???
I bought a special 2 pack containing the re-released Seasons 1 & 2. I already had the older DVD version of season 3 and was also annoyed at the lack of a "play all" button. The new seasons 1 & 2 do not have a "play all" button on the menu either. As each episode ends, you... Read More
