Storyline

In this final episode, the staff of the 4077th M*A*S*H unit find their lives no less hectic despite the fact that it appears that the war may soon be over. Until then, the staff must deal with events like Hawkeye has been temporarily institutionalized due to a nervous breakdown, Winchester has finally found people who share his taste in classical music and Father Mulcahy has been permanently deafened in a mortar attack. At last, the ceasefire is declared and the staff must come to grips with the fact that this time in their lives is over. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

The end to one of the finest TV shows in its history
17 October 2000 | by goya-4See all my reviews

The successful Tv series M*A*S*H ended its long history with this two hour finale. It begins with Hawkeye (Alda) in a mental hospital after an incident. Meanwhile the war is drawing to a close and the men and women of the 4077th prepare for peace and the return to normalcy..but not until the war takes its final shots at them. This episode is still one of the most highly rated tv shows ever on a scale of one to ten..9
