  • M.A.S.H. did nothing less than change the landscape of television comedy, bringing pointed social commentary and high satire to a medium that had previously been the domain of variety shows and slapsticky situation comedies.

    It's probably hard to believe now, since it has been imitated so much, that M.A.S.H. was a maverick program when it first aired. Its daringly frank look at the bloody reality of a battlefield hospital was cutting edge, and the Korean War setting was audacious, given the unavoidable parallels with the Vietnam War, still smoldering at the time. M.A.S.H. also pioneered the jarring approach of juxtaposing highly dramatic story lines with zany comic antics, long before the term "dramedy" was coined. The characters were finely drawn, and instantly classic. And the acerbic, urbane style of humor it specialized in is the industry gold standard today.
