The Classic BBC Comedy Series from Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft.
For Rene, the end of the war just cannot come soon enough. Relying on a camera hidden inside a potato, a long distance duck, and of course, his unparalleled charm, he aids the French Resistance in their outlandish plots to fool the Germans and end the war. But if Rene doesn't marry Denise, the leader of the Communist Resistance, it could mean the end of him! With his trusty piano player at his side, Rene manages to escape a giant circular saw, blast his way into the bank's vault, and poison the team of Generals. Can Rene obtain the plans for the German invasion in time to save everyone? Or will the overbearing passion of his female collaborators force him to save himself? Find out in this explosive sitcom from the BBC!

This two disc collection includes the first 13 episodes from The Complete Series Five of 'Allo 'Allo!

"A little bit of Hogan's Heroes, a little bit of The Pink Pather and lots of Abbott and Costello--Allo Allo! is a guilty pleasure.  Cynthia Boris, DVD Verdict
"...fun farce, well nigh impossible to dislike.  David Annandale, UpcomingDiscs.com
"...[combining] the manic farce and light satire of [Are You Being Served? and The Benny Hill Show]...it will keep you giggling from beginning to end.  John Floyd, DVD Verdict
"...for those viewers who treasure anything British, from Monty Python to Are You Being Served?, to The Royle Family.  Paul Mavis, DVD Talk
"...a great original premise, a wonderful cast and several hilarious ideas over the years.  Stefan Hedmark, The MovieHamlet

Editor's Note
The hit British comedy returns in all its bawdy glory with this first collection of episodes from the fifth series of the show. Rene (Gorden Kaye) is constantly beleaguered by problems, most of them caused by his overbearing wife. A botched attempt at getting rid of her by faking his own death leads his troublesome spouse to take over the reins of Rene's cafe, which he leaves to her in his will. Returning as his identical twin brother, he has to renege on his agreement to marry his shapely waitresses Yvette (Vicki Michelle) and Maria (Francesca Gonshaw), and attempt to win back the heart of his former wife in order to regain control of his cafe! Meanwhile, the Second World War rages on around Rene and the cast of oddballs, but this seems to be the least of their problems in this riotously funny show.
