Most TV executives wouldn’t think that a TV show full of bloody operating scenes, a foul-mouthed satire of the Vietnam War and an unapologetic critique of US Military involvement would be suited for primetime television. Lucky for us, CBS took a chance on a dark comedy called M*A*S*H, a dark comedy loosely based on the 1970 film of the same name, which in turn drew inspiration from Richard Hooker’s novel, MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors. The series went on to become an instant sensation, garnering both critical acclaim and a devoted fanbase.
M*A*S*H* is one of the most beloved shows of all time. Here’s where you can watch and stream the iconic series.
