MASH: The Complete Series, a DVD set which houses the entire sitcom which made a huge impact on American television from 1972 – 1983, is now available at an irresistibly discounted price of $79.99 (that’s 76% off the list price of $329.98!) from Amazon, a deal that’s good for today only.
Also included in this great collection is the 1970 Robert Altman directed film which the television series was adapted from. Both showcase the hijinks of the 4077, the Medical Army Surgical Unit (hence the acronym “MASH”) during the Korean War of the 1950s, whose steely-eyed approach in operating on the massive amounts of wounded soldiers who are brought to them are counterparted with comedic moments which alleviates the unit’s stress and tension from having such a pressure-filled job.
The box set for the series, which originally ran on CBS and won scores of Emmys and high viewership, something which remains to this day in syndicated reruns, also includes the pilot episode and the two-hour series finale, which at the time, was one of the most watched programs in television history. Starring Alan Alda, Mike Farrell, Wayne Rogers, Gary Burghoff, Jamie Farr, Loretta Swit, and others, the sitcom successfully walked the tightrope between comedy and drama, hilarity and tragedy, filled with one-liners and gags and also intense set pieces which gave the program a bit of class and set it apart as one of TV’s all time greats.
This offer expires at midnight PST, so act fast and relive one of TV’s finest hours from the 20th Century. Over and out.
