M*A*S*H References on Grey’s Anatomy, Miami Medical

No Comments

The March 25th, 2010 episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy was titled “Suicide is Painless,” a clear reference to the memorable theme song from the film MASH and M*A*S*H. The episode featured a flashback to a character’s experience as a medic in Iraq.

Also, during the series premiere of Miami Medical (a new drama from Jerry Bruckheimer) on CBS last night, the character played by Jeremy Northam (Dr. Matthew Proctor), referred to the Miami trauma center as “MASH in paradise.” According to the official CBS description for the episode, Northam’s character “is new to the trauma team after leaving a lucrative private practice following his return from a tour of duty in a MASH unit during the first Gulf War.” I watched the episode after hearing the line in promotional spots but don’t recall any mention of Northam’s character having worked in a MASH unit.

I’ve updated M*A*S*H References on Television accordingly.
