How Much Do You Know About the TV Series M*A*S*H?

The 'M*A*S*H' TV series was and still is one of the greatest TV shows of all time. The series was based on a Richard Hooker novel that was adapted into a movie. The book was a work of fiction. Though it was based on the author's true-life experiences serving in an actual MASH unit during the Korean War. The show has been best described as a dramedy. It portrayed the real-life struggles of the people finding themselves in the midst of war. The drama of the war was coupled with the love, friendship, and comedy of the players as they went about contributing their skills in the best way they could given the sometimes horrible conditions they found themselves in as well as the playful, down times, too. Let's see what rank you fall under in your knowledge of one of the greatest TV shows ever!!

Quiz WriterChantelle

Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Did you know?

A peninsula divided

Did you know that to this day both the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and its southern counterpart, The Republic of Korea both consider themselves to be the leader of the entire Korean peninsula? There was never a peace treaty signed between the north and the south after the Japanese surrender in WWII. The two halves were simply created and divided into two zones with the Soviets in the north and the Americans in the south. In ancient history, the Korean peninsula and the kingdom of Gojoseon were founded in northern Korea and Manchuria in 2333 BC. There’s a big gap in the history from then until the 7th century BC where the peninsula became the center of one warring state after another based on varying Chinese, Mongol and even Buddhist influences. In the late 1800’s the peninsula was being influenced by the advancement of European powers, and after a series of several rebellions and assassinations, the Korean Empire was created. This didn’t last long as the Japanese pretty much annexed the Korean Empire in 1910. The end of WWII led to the conditions for the Korean War and the current divide between the two Koreas we know today.
