Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the conclusion of M*A*S*H's Season Four opener, Hawkeye (Alan Alda) escorts B. J. Hunnicut (Mike Farrell), the likeable replacement of Hawkeye's old pal Trapper John, back to the 4077th. En route, B.J. gets his first taste of "surgery under fire"--and Hawkeye realizes that he's found a kindred spirit. Imagine the surprise of strutting martinet Frank Burns (Larry Linville) when the "strait-laced" B.J. turns out to be just as cheeky and irreverent as Hawkeye; clearly, it's going to be business as usual for the rest of the War. The first of the series' 60-minute "special" episodes, Welcome to Korea has since been divided into two half-hour episodes for syndication.
