    It could not decide if it wanted to be a sitcom or a drama.
    It compromised with the network by including a 'chuckle' track, which is halfway between having a laugh track and not having a laugh track.
    It is overplayed in syndication with some cable channels, showing it up to eight times a day.
    Many of the actors from the show went on to appear in TV commercials for IBM.
    Gary Burghoff was the only regular to reprise his role from the movie.
    Out of all the actors on the show, only Jamie Farr actually served in the army during the Korean War.
    Only two actors stayed with the series from the first episode to the last episode (Loretta Swit and Alan Alda. William Christopher joined the cast in the third episode and stayed the rest of the run.
    Alan Alda gained a lot of control over the show towards the end, causing it to be less funny and more preachy.
    Despite being set in the early 1950's, some of the cast members sported 70's hair styles.
    Alan Alda wore 80's footwear in a couple episodes.
    It is one of the longest running sit-coms in television history.
    It lasted eleven seasons, yet the Korean War only lasted three years.
    It continues to have a huge following decades after it was cancelled.
    It was critically acclaimed for most of its run.
    It ended with an episode that was watched by 125 million people, one of the largest audiences in television history.
    Many of the characters and situations seen on the show were based on real people and events.
    Many then-unknowns appeared on the series as guest stars, such as John Ritter, Patrick Swayze and Laurence Fishburne.
    It was released on DVD with the feature that allows a person to watch the show without the canned laughter.
    It was a rare television show that could be both serious and hilarious at the same time.
    It used the horrors of the Korean war to parallel the horrors of the on-going Vietnam war.
