Introduction:

Hawkeye, B.J., Winchester and the rest of the 4077 gang are back now in the M*A*S*H TV Season 7 DVD. The M*A*S*H TV Season 7 three-disc DVD set includes all 26 episodes from the season, which aired on Mondays at 9PM in 1978-1979 on CBS, including the groundbreaking episode “Point Of View,” which was originally aired without a laugh track and shot entirely from the point of view of a wounded soldier. Every episode can be viewed with or without a laugh track and the classic two-part episode “Our Finest Hour” can be played in one continuous viewing. M*A*S*H stars Alan Alda, Mike Farrell, David Odgen Stiers, Jamie Farr, Gary Burghoff, Harry Morgan, William Christopher and Loretta Swit. TV legend Larry Gelbart is the executive producer, along side series star - Alan Alda. Season 7 of the series was #9 in the Nielsen Ratings for the season.


Memorable Episodes / Notable Guest Stars:

Some memorable season seven episodes include the season premiere “Commander Pierce,” the two-part episode “Our Finest Hour,” “Point of View” and the Emmy Award Winning episode “Inga.” Some famous faces guest starring were Dick O’Neill (“B.J. Papa San”), Mariette Hartley (“Inga”) and Kit McDonough (“Ain’t Love Grand”).


Packaging:

The packaging on this set is better than the case of season six. This case is a bit bigger, at least to me. Like previous sets, there is no box cover, just the case. The cover features Hawkeye and his two buddies’ playing cards it seems. The back of the case features info on the set and the seventh season, with credits and two screenshots from episodes, such as one with Loretta Swit. When you open the case once, you will see an M*A*S*H information booklet on the left side. The booklet features info on the 4077, season seven, credits, and disc by disc episode breakdowns with episode titles, synopsis, writers, directors and original airdate. There are some nice small photos in the booklet, too. There is also a booklet on other FOX TV DVD releases. And there is also a note saying we can expect season 8 this June! On the right side, you can see disc one. Disc one is green and has a photo of Hawkeye. When you open the case another time, you will see disc two on the left and disc three on the right. Disc two is orange and disc three is green with a photo of Hot Lips. Disc one has episodes 1-9, disc two has episodes 10-17 and disc three has 18-26.


Menu Design and Navigation:

The menu screen is nothing fancy. Just about the same as the previous sets. No music in the background. The menu screen has a shot of a paper stuck to a tree stump. On that paper, we see all the episodes on the discs and the ever famous “Play All” option, your selector is the M*A*S*H asterisk (*). When you select an episode, you get to the episode menu screen. That has the options of “Play Episode,” “Language Selection,” “Chapter Selection” and “Home.” Each episode menu screen is different obviously with different pictures of that episode. The language option has the no laugh track feature, like previous sets.


Video and Audio Quality:

The video and audio are on par with previous sets as well. It is better than we see on television like on The Hallmark Channel. The audio is in mono, but if you don’t speak English, you’re in luck – French and Spanish audio is available, along with subtitles for the Spanish. Each episode is roughly 24:30-25:00 in length. Though, there are a handful of episodes in the 23-23:30 range, which is fishy. I have no proof though, other than that, that these episodes are not unedited.


Special Features:

The set features no special features, like all of the other previous sets, which is a shame. For a show this popular, there ought to be something out there. Remember the M*A*S*H series finale, still to this date, is the highest rated show in the history of television.


Final Comments:

Overall, all fans should still buy this set to continue their collection. As mentioned before, season 8 is on its way this June and then we have three more seasons still after that. So, FOX, surprise us and give us special features. Or at least give us slim cases, like your other TV DVD sets, like Family Guy and Reba.


Final Numbers (out of 5 stars):

Video Quality: 4.5/5
Audio Quality: 4.5/5
Special Features: N/A
Menu Design/Navigation: 4.5/5
Overall: 4/5
