Mash

Series Description

The M*A*S*H TV show was a 30 minute comedy series on CBS about a unit of doctors and nurses who had been torn from their personal lives and thrown into a muddy, bug infested camp in the middle of the Korean war! Most of them didn't want to be there. Their careers had just been "taking off" after years of medical education and training and now their rewards were being denied them. But
when they heard the "choppers" coming in with wounded soldiers, all that was forgotten. They became the only hope close enough to the fighting to help the injured. When their work was done, they could go back to their drinking and complaining and sometimes romance in an effort to forget their miserable plight.
This TV series did the impossible. It somehow found a way to be a comedy with a very non-comical premise. Most of the comedy revolved around the "draftees" pulling practical jokes on the career military personnel.
