M*A*S*H (CBS) Rated TV-PG

The staff members at an Army hospital during the Korean War find laughter wherever they can. Starring Alan Alda, Loretta Swit, and Jamie Farr.

This series is what it is; it’s a comedy in wartime. The jokes are there, and it’s funny, but I felt it was unrealistic. The characters mostly are one-dimensional and don’t have much depth. However, I think that shows in the fact that in wartime you only know the people around as what they are – without the complexity that comes from really knowing a person. What makes this show work is the brilliant writing that bring the laughs and brings these characters to life while the world around them is falling apart. It has heart and humor, even if they try to do the most unrealistic things around them. This show is worth a watch.
