As the eleventh season begins, rumors are running rampant around camp. One rumor has everyone believing that Marilyn Monroe is going to pay the 4077 a special visit, while another claims that the peace talks are finally making headway. This second rumor gets Margaret thinking after Charles mentions how a Los Angeles skyscraper had a time capsule built into its cornerstone. Although he thinks the idea is insane, Margaret decides to make a time capsule of her own to bury in camp. âWe could put something in the ground to remind people we were here,â she suggested. With Hawkeyeâs help, items from around camp were gathered up for the capsule: a chopperâs broken fan belt, Radarâs teddy bear, one of Henry Blakeâs fishing flies, a bottle of Charlesâs cognac and Father Mulcahyâs boxing gloves.
And finally, the gang of the 4077 hears the announcement theyâve been waiting for:
âThis is Robert Pierpoint speaking to you from nearby Panmunjom. It is one minute before ten p.m. We can still hear the sound of nearby artillery. At some point during the next few seconds, the guns should go silent, as the cease-fire officially goes into effectâ¦
There it is. Thatâs the sound of peace.â

ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN ENDJan 20, 2009
By Z. Jackson
This would be the last season of the long running M*A*S*H season which is kind of funny as I read once how Alan Alda signed the contract for the first season of M*A*S*H just a couple of hours before they shot the pilot episode as he was afraid to sign thinking it might be a long running series, I for one am glad he did! In this final Season we see a closer to everything in the 4077. The third disc is the final episode which is two hours long basically a movie but very powerful with the emotional that was felt during the war and the emotional of saying goodbye for good and watching Hawkeye struggle with the casualties that war sometimes brings. In this season Klinger gets married and ends up staying in Korea with the girl and there are other memorial episodes. If your a M*A*S*H fan like me your collection would not be complete without the very last season of MASH. If you just liked the Season Finial "Goodbye, Farwell and Amen" you can by that separate but why not get it with the rest of this season to enjoy as well.

The End of a Television IconSep 11, 2009
By Mark J. Fowler
"Let's Play Two!"
The first few episodes of Season 11 showed that it was definitely time for one of the most celebrated shows of television history to close shop: Episodes began to be written featuring characters who had previously only had lines like "yes, Doctor" or "would you like bread with lunch, Major?"
But a lot of thought plainly went into the final moments: it is worth the price of the entire package for only the final two episodes: In "As Time Goes By" Margaret decides to lead a group burying a time capsule commemorating their time at the 4077th. When the boys in The Swamp offer to help she is resistant, knowing the general lack of seriousness from Hawkeye and B.J. This episode does a good job combining the trademark of the show: M*A*S*H was able to be funnier than almost any show in history, while at the same time addressing serious issues in more depth than almost any other "drama".
The finale "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen" remains the most watched television broadcast of all time - over 50 million households were tuned in, which represented more than 60% of the tvs in use, about 10 million more than the highest-rated Super Bowls. I remember well watching the original broadcast with a large group - the 30 minute sit-com format was turned into a 2 1/2 hour broadcast, and we were riveted for every moment. Originally, we were disconcerted - what was Hawkeye doing in the loony bin? The episode unraveled at a leisurely pace and every major character received a well-deserved shining moment leading up to the climax where we discover why Hawkeye cracked up. The final thirty minutes lets us say our goodbyes to these beloved characters as they say farewell to each other.
The impact of this show on American culture cannot be overstated.

By L. J. Steel
The usual high quality, as seen in prior seasons of this evergreen programme. Pity there were only 11 seasons! Highly recommended.

The Final M*A*S*HJan 20, 2010
I remember still the night the final episode of M*A*S*H aired. the lights went out!!! there were four adaults sitting on a couch n the dark watching on a 5 inch battery powered black and white TV. The power was fading on the batteries at the end of the show. I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
This is the best show that ever was and to miss it should be a crime. do yourself and your kids a favore and buy this for them. One day they will thank you for it
I love MASHApr 21, 2013
By M J. P
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
