30 x 30 minute episodes
Most of them had returned to their hometowns and were scattered around the United States, but three of them – Sherman Potter (Harry Morgan), Max Klinger (Jamie Farr), and Father Mulcahy (William Christopher) – were reunited on the staff of the General John J Pershing Veterans Administration Hospital (better known as General General) in River Bend, Missouri.
Potter was the chief of staff, and it was through his recruiting efforts that Klinger joined the staff as his administrative assistant and Father Mulcahy as the hospital chaplain.
The staff at the VA hospital also included bureaucratic, glory hunting ineffectual hospital administrator Mike D’Angelo (John Chappell), his pushy secretary Alma (Brandis Kemp), another secretary, Bonnie (Wendy Schaal) and a somewhat ingenuous young surgical resident named Gene (Jay O. Sanders). One of the more memorable patients was absent-minded old-timer Bob Scannell (Pat Cranshaw).
Klinger’s Korean war bride, Soon-Lee (Rosalind Chao), had returned with him to America and Potter’s wife, Mildred, who was often talked about but never seen on M*A*S*H – except in a picture on Potter’s desk in Korea – also featured in the series (played successively by Barbara Townsend and Ann Pitoniak).
After Mash was first telecast on 26 September 1983 and last aired on 18 December 1984.
