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.

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!
