Fail it did. The three ''M*A*S*H'' regulars to return were Potter, Klinger and Mulcahy, although Radar and Flagg dropped by as {{Special Guest}}s. What, you say? But didn't Klinger [[IChooseToStay Choose To Stay]] in Korea in the parent show's GrandFinale? Well, don't worry - that was {{Hand Wave}}d away in the {{pilot}}, because Soon-Lee's parents are safe and sound. Oh, and Mulcahy got his hearing back because we can't have deaf people on television. (Actually, Klinger and Mulcahy end up returning to resolve some lingering plots from the ''M*A*S*H'' finale.) Anyway, the result is essentially the same show as ''M*A*S*H'' except without the war. Too bad the war was the dramatic driving force behind the whole thing.

%%* AfterShow: TropeNamer.



%%* TheFifties
%%* FromTheAshes
%%* GoodShepherd: Father Mulcahy
%%* {{Jerkass}}: Wally Wainwright, Alma Cox
%%* LaughTrack



%%* ResetButton: Pounded on in the pilot.
* ReTool: The second season. Season one went quite well. The show recognized its limits, and ended up placing 15th -- great for a brand-new show -- unless you happen to be CBS, which wanted the numbers its predecessor always pulled (in later seasons -- early on, it too took a while). So Klinger went back into drag, Soon-Lee became a caricature, and Barbara Townsend's sturdy competent Mildred Potter was replaced by Anne Pitoniak's shrewish airhead, meant to make her "more like [[Radio/TheBurnsAndAllenShow Gracie Allen]]". S1 had 22 eps and placed 15th; S2 had 8-10 eps and placed 90th. ExecutiveMeddling, much?
