Editorial Reviews

After a first season in which M*A*S*H barely rated among television's top fifty shows, the show received a boost in its second season when CBS switched their time slot to Saturday nights right after "All in the Family."

Knowing a lot of new people would be tuning in to the second season, creator/writer Larry Gelbart reveals, "We wrote the first episode as a sort of second pilot to introduce all the new viewers to the characters." Almost immediately after the second season began, the show became a hit-and the actors became household names.

Little did they know the show was going to last longer than the war itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hilariously Fantastic Second Season October 1, 2005
By M. Hart
Format:DVD
The success of the 1970 film "MASH", which was directed by Robert Altman, inspired the production of one of the most successful and longest running TV series of all time: "M*A*S*H". While most of the main characters from the original film were portrayed in the TV series, only one of the film's actors reprised his role for the TV series: Gary Burghoff. Like the film, the show was about the men and women working in a fictitious U.S. Army "Mobile Army Surgical Hospital" (or MASH unit) known as the 4077th during the Korean War in the early 1950's. For the first three seasons, the U.S. Army personnel stationed at the 4077th included Lt. Col. Henry Blake (McLean Stevenson, 1929-1996), Major Frank Burns (Larry Linville, 1939-2000), Maj. Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan (Loretta Swit), Capt. Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce (Alan Alda), Capt. "Trapper John" McIntyre (Wayne Rogers), Father Francis Mulcahy (William Christopher, except for the first season pilot episode), Cpl. Walter "Radar" O'Reilly (Gary Burghoff) and Cpl. Maxwell Klinger (Jamie Farr).

As in the film, the TV show often demonstrated a lack of respect for the U.S. military by portraying many of its officers as being inept and incompetent. This was the formula used for Maj. Burns and Lt. Col. Henry Blake, but whereas Lt. Col. Blake had a very likeable personality, Maj. Burns wanted to see a more disciplined command and was often quite the little stool pigeon. Also, while being married and regarding himself as being a devout Christian, Maj. Burns maintained a romantic affair with Maj. Houlihan. (In the film, it was while Majors Burns & Houlihan were passionately kissing with the entire MASH unit listening to them that Maj. Houlihan earned the nickname "Hot Lips".) Whereas in the film Maj.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great set is missing something, but still great. October 18, 2002
Format:DVD
The ability to watch every episode without the laugh track is a major bonus. It adds a completely new dimension to each show. For me it actually expands on each character, such as sarcasm is sarcasm instead of a funny or dumb line. If you've ever watched a sitcom without a laugh track that originally aired with a laugh track, you'll know what I mean. The laugh track is ON by default, meaning you'll need to turn it off if you change discs (at least on my 5-disc player).
The DVD set, through the original release of the season two DVD set, does not contain any extras, such as behind the scenes commentary.
The 3-disc DVD set comes in a wonderful keep-case; all plastic. It includes a booklet with all episode chapters, but no extra documentation.
As of this date, there is a long period between the release of each season's DVD set.
I would have liked a "Play All Episodes" option to keep from having to start each episode manually. You may have seen this option on other DVDs where you can play all deleted scenes automatically.
Remember, always release the DVD by pushing on the center post to keep from bending or cracking the disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars M*A*S*H is Great...DVD needs work January 6, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD, as far as the episodes go, is great. I had never seen these episodes unedited before. So for those of you (which is probably most of us) who have been watching it in Syndication, you are in for a real treat. The picture and sound are, well, DVD quality! The original didn't look and sound this good!
However, as far as the "packaging" and extras go, it leaves a LOT to be desired. The only extra to speak of is the ability to delete the laugh track. There are no bloopers, no cast interviews, no "behind the scenes" nor any other of the "extras" almost all DVD's come with. The insert is plain and boring. The episode descriptions are extremely limited, and look as though they were written by someone who had never even watched the show. There is little or no additional information about, for example guest cast or directors, etc.
As for the release schedule, well, come on FOX ... get with the program. Your loyal M*A*S*H fans do not want to wait six or seven years for the last season to finally come out. Take a lesson from Paramount and how quickly they got the entire series of Star Trek: The Next Generation out on DVD. Make it your resolve to get out all 11 seasons of M*A*S*H by the end of 2003 and give us the DVD we really want.. no, deserve!
And, make sure you include the final episode "Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen" as part of the package!

5.0 out of 5 stars Far More Depth, Laughter, & Diversity Than Season 1. February 18, 2007
Format:DVD
Qualitywise the second season saw a huge improvement in the scripts & the total consistency of the series. "Hawkeye," was clearly the heart & Soul of the show. Larry Linville was exceptional as the awful snitch Major Frank Burns, who did not appear to have any redeeming qualities. He may be the most loathsome character on 1970's TV? Indeed, he & Major Houlihan's-Loretta Swit battles with Colonel Blake-McLean Stevenson, & Captains Hawkeye-Alan Alda, & Trapper John-Wayne Rogers respectively provided the bulk of the humorous plots. Episode-8, "The Trial Of Henry Blake," was exceptional.

Here all the diverse characters blended their distinctly different natures into a fine ensemble. Other well balanced message based episodes were 19-"The Chosan People & 6-Kim." These two focused on the relationships between the local South Korean's & the Americans. The vignette types of episodes like "Dear Dad...Three, & Letters Home," added more balance & continuity, while the additions of recurring characters like compassionate Psychiatrist Sidney Freedman-Allan Arbus & Paranoid Colonel Flagg-Ed Winter {the latter being a brave version of Frank Burns with a Hero complex}, widened the breadth & depth of the season. For me, "The Incubator," was the funniest episode of the season. Trapper & Hawkeye go to great lengths in pursuit of an Incubator for the 4077. They run into burauecracy, corruption, & incompetance along the way. This season had it all. Heartbreaking poignancy, moral outrage, growing characters, & hilarity.
