Rarely does a spin-off TV series compare to the original film/source. Well, this is beyond comparison.
Those of a certain age grew up with this series - and fond memories are to be had.
It had the comedy and poignancy - to keep its audience.
And, it towers above its chaotic source material.
The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is stuck in the middle of the Korean war. With little help from the circumstances they find themselves in, they are forced to make their own fun. Fond of practical jokes and revenge, the doctors, nurses, administrators, and soldiers often find ways of making wartime life bearable.
