From Amazon.co.uk

In honouring M*A*S*H's third series with the prestigious Peabody Award, the judges praised it "for the depth of its humour and the manner in which comedy is used to lift the spirit and, as well, to offer a profound statement on the nature of war." Contained on three discs, the third series comprises several benchmark episodes illustrative of what the Peabody judges called "television of high purpose." In "Rainbow Bridge" Hawkeye (Alan Alda), Trapper (Wayne Rogers), Radar (Gary Burghoff), Klinger (Jamie Farr), and an opportunistic Frank Burns (Larry Linville) participate in a swap with the North Koreans of wounded POWs. In "The Consultant", Robert Alda (Alan's dad) guest stars as a visiting doctor who cracks under the pressure of operating so close to the front. And the shocking season finale, "Abyssinia, Henry", took a page from Mister Roberts and killed off commanding officer Henry Blake (McLean Stevenson), who was en route home.

M*A*S*H's sense of humour did not go AWOL. The season opener, "The General Flipped at Dawn", earned guest star Harry Morgan an Emmy nomination for his performance as a certifiable general and paved the way for Morgan to join the cast in season four. "Adam's Ribs" is a classic episode in which Hawkeye orders out to Chicago for a very special delivery of spare ribs. In "Iron Guts Kelly", the war's "greatest fighting general" gets a little too gung-ho and perishes in Margaret's (Loretta Swit) tent. To paraphrase the title of one episode, this was a full, rich season that offered each member of one of television's finest ensembles the opportunity to shine. But Alda, who earned a Golden Globe award that year, fully emerges as the series' star. --Donald Liebenson

Format: DVD
By the shows’ third season the regular cast members of MASH had evolved into a homogenous ensemble who inhabited their characters with a comfortable finesse. During this season the show was honoured with the prestigious Peabody Award, the judges praising the series "for the depth of its humour and the manner in which comedy is used to lift the spirit and, as well, to offer a profound statement on the nature of war."
Season three is memorable in several ways. Harry Morgan makes his first, and Emmy nominated appearance, as a mad general in the opening episode "The General Flipped at Dawn" In "The Consultant," Robert Alda (Alan's father) guest stars as a visiting doctor who cracks under the pressure of operating so close to the front. Many of the cast are given space in which to shine in their own right here, but as ever Alan Alda steals the show (he was awarded a Golden Globe that year) Perhaps the closing of series three is most notable for the fact that it is the last time we see both Colonel Henry Blake and Trapper. The season closer, "Abyssinia Henry" is regarded by many as the finest ever episode, and certainly one of the most poignant. In my view "classic" MASH came to an end here in the same way as "classic" James Bond ended with the departure of Sean Connery. Not to decry the following seasons, which are also well worth purchasing, but the appearance of BJ Hunnicutt and Colonel Potter in series four does change the mood and tone.
On a technical note, there are three discs here, each containing eight episodes. Transfer is good as always - do remember these shows are old! When first aired, MASH was intended to play without a laughter track. The US networks panicked as usual though. Mercifully the BBC insisted on the show being fake laughter free for British audiences.

My eagerly awaited parcel of Series 3 arrived and was ripped open and popped straight in the DVD player. Series 3 starts to see more rounded characters emerging, some minor players start to step more into the limelight, especially Klinger and Father Mulcahy. This is the series where we lose Henry Blake and by the beginning of Series 4 we find we have also lost Trapper John. But fear not, Mash goes on from strength to strength despite these losses. The story lines start to improve and the performances improve along with them. The final episode is so well done and a real-tearjerker. As with Series 1 and 2, there is not much in the way of special features, but the best feature of all is the ability to turn of the dreaded canned laughter!
