How can any M*A*S*H fan go wrong with this box set?
Excellent transfers of commercial-free episodes, each with chapter breaks (corresponding to the broadcast segment breaks), eight shows to a disc, and each accessible individually. My one complaint (and it's one for the entire series of volumes) is there is no "play all" option.

Another classic season

"Some consider the third season the show's very best, full of humor but also more boldly playing with serious topics. The actors are really at home in their characters by this point, and the audience knows them inside and out, too. They no longer need to play gags over-the-top to work because we know them so well. And because we know they so well, the serious turns hit home.Reams have been written about M.A.S.H.; offering accolades would just be repeating what has been said before. Among the most popular sitcoms ever made, the show still stands the test of time despite being a "period" show. The jokes still work, the characters are still charming and feel like old friends, and the show still more enjoyable than most of the shows that have come and gone since.Like the other sets, this DVD collection is bare bones (though not poorly produced). We get the episodes spread out over several discs in a sturdy triple-case and a small booklet with info on each episode. That's it. No extras. No commentaries. No documentaries. Just the episodes.And that is just fine, because the episodes are great. Good picture far quality, good sound, and an option to turn off the laugh track are about all we really need.Even better is the price. Because this is so bare bones, we're paying only about $35 rather than the $50 or $70 so common with TV-on-DVD sets.A no-brainer buy for M.A.S.H. fans."
The first two were done very well

"I bought the first two M.A.S.H. seasons when they were released, and I was impressed by the quality of the video and audio transfer. The video was crisp and the sound was excellent. It is clear that they have gone back to the original masters, transferred them to digital and cleaned them up. It's kind of funny that with the advances in technology, the Mash episodes look better now than they did then. They also broke the laugh track out so you can turn it off. This isn't a big deal to me, but my wife likes it.So the downside is that it is light on the extras such as commentary or, but I rarely bother with them anyway, so it's not a big deal for me. What I really want is what they have delivered: a great looking, great sounding copy of all those great old M.A.S.H. episodes."
Another silly Army season!!

"What can I say about a TV series that is already great. This by far is one of the best seasons. The season opener starts right out with a big laugh in "The General Flipped at Dawn". This is the episode that won Harry Morgan an Emmy and the role of Col Potter. You must see his interaction with Klinger! Of course you see two more appearances of Col Flagg, the infamous CIA agent, who never leaves. This is also the season that has Trap and Hawk (with Radar's help) looking to have ribs delivered from Chicago. And what a great episode when Gen Macarthur decides to visit and Klinger dresses up as the Statue of Liberty and the General salutes him! The season ends in a with the leaving of Lt Col Henry Blake. I am sure to be happy when they release this season and can't wait for the others! They're all a must buy!!!"
