AfterMASH: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

AfterMASH: Season 1 (1983-1984)




Critic Consensus: AfterMASH loses some of its predecessor's magic with a new location and ensemble, but Harry Morgan holds down the fort amiably as Dr. Sherman Potter.


Tv Season Info

'M*A*S*H' veterans Potter, Klinger and Mulcahy come home from Korea and try to adjust to civilian life working at a Midwestern VA hospital. Contrary to popular belief, the spin-off was not an immediate failure; its first-year ratings, in fact, put it at No. 15 (right above 'The Fall Guy'), but the numbers continued to fall and the show was canceled early in its second season.

Critic Reviews for AfterMASH: Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5)

AfterMASH's blend was as sweet in many ways as the old one. Gelbart wisely concentrated most of the debut hour on Potter, the most interesting of the three remaining characters.

What the show lacks is bite. There's no anger in it, no outrageousness. Everybody is nice.

Saved from being hospital-comedy cliches only by scripter Gelbart's deft touch. But one wonders if even he can make relatively benign battles against bureaucracy... compelling enough for AfterMASH to enjoy long-term success.

AfterMASH is saddled with three lead characters who functioned only intermittently well in bit roles in the original. As leads, they are at best flimsy, at worst, bland and boring. In addition, none has any real comic possibilities.

The spinoff has some of the same warmth, humanism and dark humor, as well as a little of the old dialogue... And there are anti-war sentiments and a special sensitivity to women's issues, but the characters who best expressed these ideas are gone.

Harry Morgan, one of my favorite supporting actors, made an invaluable contribution to MASH. But even with help from his very accomplished Korean War colleagues Jamie Farr and William Christopher, he isn't strong enough to carry AfterMASH.
