Trivia

Robert Altman's son, Mike Altman, wrote the lyrics for the MASH (1970) theme song "Suicide is Painless". He was only fifteen when he wrote the lyrics, and while his father only made seventy thousand dollars dollars for directing the movie, Mike made a million dollars from the royalties for this show, for co-writing the song. The lyrics were dropped from the television version, however, because they were deemed too controversial for television at the time. See more »

Goofs

Few of the primary characters past the first season wore the correct haircuts/hairdos for being members of the US Army in the 1950s. As the series continued, only Colonel Potter ( Harry Morgan) looked as if he could have been a military officer or member in a 1950s Army unit. See more »

Still Funny After 30 Years
10 March 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

This is still one of the funniest shows on television, especially the first four seasons when they still had a broad sense of humor. To me the glory days of M*A*S*H ended with the departure of Larry Linville (Major Frank Burns). After his departure, especially in the final three years, the show became more and more issue oriented and pretty much lost me until the classic finale. Other than that, it was still a great show.
