Editorial Reviews

By the showÂ's third year ratings were high enough to give the writers and creators more leverage with the network and thus a bit less trouble with the censors. In addition, the showÂ's writers were more experienced with the TV format and had more in-depth knowledge of the characters. By this time they could also gauge how much serious material the audience would accept mixed in with their comedy.

But most importantly, between the second and third seasons Larry Gelbart and Gene Reynolds visited Korea, a trip that they say affected the stories in the third season.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Final Season for McLean Stevenson & Wayne Rogers October 22, 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic season May 9, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Some consider the third season the show's very best, full of humor but also more boldly playing with serious topics. The actors are really at home in their characters by this point, and the audience knows them inside and out, too. They no longer need to play gags over-the-top to work because we know them so well. And because we know they so well, the serious turns hit home.
Reams have been written about M.A.S.H.; offering accolades would just be repeating what has been said before. Among the most popular sitcoms ever made, the show still stands the test of time despite being a "period" show. The jokes still work, the characters are still charming and feel like old friends, and the show still more enjoyable than most of the shows that have come and gone since.
Like the other sets, this DVD collection is bare bones (though not poorly produced). We get the episodes spread out over several discs in a sturdy triple-case and a small booklet with info on each episode. That's it. No extras. No commentaries. No documentaries. Just the episodes.
And that is just fine, because the episodes are great. Good picture far quality, good sound, and an option to turn off the laugh track are about all we really need.
Even better is the price. Because this is so bare bones, we're paying only about $35 rather than the $50 or $70 so common with TV-on-DVD sets.
A no-brainer buy for M.A.S.H. fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first two were done very well February 15, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought the first two M.A.S.H. seasons when they were released, and I was impressed by the quality of the video and audio transfer. The video was crisp and the sound was excellent. It is clear that they have gone back to the original masters, transferred them to digital and cleaned them up. It's kind of funny that with the advances in technology, the Mash episodes look better now than they did then. They also broke the laugh track out so you can turn it off. This isn't a big deal to me, but my wife likes it.
So the downside is that it is light on the extras such as commentary or, but I rarely bother with them anyway, so it's not a big deal for me. What I really want is what they have delivered: a great looking, great sounding copy of all those great old M.A.S.H. episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4077 GREATNESS January 4, 2009
Format:DVD
This was another excellent season of MASH with the humor goodness we are use to as well as some excellent episodes. This is also a Season we see more emotion with the characters specially in the episode "Abyssinia, Henry" where Henry Blake's plane is shot down on his way home. This is also the last season we see Trapper JOhn and Hawkeyee together in there comic duo.

Season INCLUDES:
"THE GENERAL FLIPPED AT DAWN: When Major General Bratford Hamitlon Steele arrives to inspect the 407, he decides to move the unit closer to the front an insane idea, but then the general is quite insane.
"RAINBOW BRIDGE" An unusual offer from the Chinese to swap POW patients nearly ends in disaster when a jittery Frank secretly brings a tiny gun to the meeting place.
"OFFICER OF THE DAY" Colonel Flagg finds himself up against the wiles of Hawkeye and Trapper after he orders them to patch up a North Korean prisoner so he'll survive until his execution.
"IRON GUTS KELLY" When General Iron Guts Kelly visits the 4077, his unfortunate demise on the cot in Houlihan's tent leaves his aide frantically scrambling to contrive a more heroic death.
"O.R." A hectic day in the O.R. has all the docs overworked, exhausted, and facing enormous pressure as they second-guess some of te day's countless life and death decisions.
"SPRINGTIME" Spring is in the air as Klinger learns his sweetheart back home wants to marry him, Frank and Margaret go on a romantic picnic, and Radar falls for a nurse named Louise!
"CHECK-UP" Trapper's ulcer appears to be his ticket home - until newly revised Army regulations from Headquarters arrive during his farewell party.
