If you enjoy M A S H then you will enjoy this one. All of the episodes are great, however a word or two, (way more than two if you have my reviews before). on the last episode named : "Goodbye, Fairwell and Amen". This is no doubt written among others by Alan Alda and it is well written and very well done. It is true to what I have read and what my Father used to tell me about the war, any war. However this is not an episode you'd want to see more than once. Of course that is what I love to do is watch my favorite movies, TV shows and TV movies over and over. But this one is hard to watch. It is depressing, sad and altogether too real. But I do recommend it at least once. As I remember it was a 2 hr finale so you can't miss the finale of the greatest and most popular TV show in history. Now I can't imagine anyone having missed it the first time around, but then if you don't or didn't like M A S H then you wouldn't want to see this one. But I just wanted to mentioned it. I can watch M A S H s over and over as I mentioned except the finale. In the meantime enjoy and by season 8 too because that has some really good episodes in it namely: Time Line,, where Hawkeye does an Aortic graft. I am an RN so naturally I enjoyed it and it is really true to life. Thank you for listening,Candy
This was the final season and my collection is now complete for this series. It has been fun to watch this series over again from the start. This was my very first time ever seeing the final episode though. I was just a baby when it first aired on TV and the reruns I'd seen on TV would go up to the 2nd to last episode, and then never show the final one. I was surprised at how long it was, but I felt the length was about right. It sure was a sad one though!
As for the product itself, I'm sad to say that it arrived with Disc 2 out of place and the bottom of it was damaged pretty badly. Luckily it seemed to play okay still but it looks horrible and is all scratched to pieces! Very disappointed for that and the fact that so many DVDs arrive in that condition now days when they are supposed to be brand new.
Why pay $23.99 for just "Good-bye, Farewell and Amen" when you can pay $16.49 and get the entire 11th season too!! That's what I did.
I first watched GFA when it aired in 1983 and I was glued to my little black-and-white TV for the entire 2 1/1 hours, and at the end I was sobbing, especially when the "Goodbye" spelled out in rocks was seen from the helicopter. So I waited and watched for when it would come out on VHS, which it did eventually. However, my VCR died and I was thinking about getting GFA for DVD.
When I saw I could get the final season as well, I jumped at the chance. It's a fitting build up to the final episode, and season 11 helps flesh out some of the supporting players. Truly MASH had matured from the early days with Trapper John. But I was a little disappointed that the laugh track was so evident--I didn't remember that from watching the series on reruns. And really there are no stand out episodes, such as the one told entirely from the patient's point of view in an earlier season.
But all in all a must-have for the serious MASH fan.
Unfortunately, I don't have strength enough to review each season but all of them are fantastic. Such a long running series and deserving so. I always felt like part of the 4077 when I watched it as a kid and found I feel the same as an adult. MASH is the bomb! (and missile, mine, grenade and a whole bunch of surgical shyte. :-D
i love the mash series, the truth is there to view as it really happened in korea, the series show how the men and women serving mash units survived mentally through their antics and service. proud to own this season and have the mash series, we owe our freedom to the men and women in service of our country!
