Classic Television

by Publius on 12/27/2007

As a baby boomer I grew up watching this show. My grandfather and father were huge fans and that made me a huge fan as well. While these classic television shows do not have all of the action and gratuitous sex of today's sit-coms they exemplify some of the finest outright comedy writing and performances you will find. Of the classic television shows available Hogan's Heroes is among the best. The situations are certainly ridiculous and ludicrous at times, but they are beyond entertaining. I would recommend this set to anyone who wants good old-fashioned entertainment that is interesting as well as enjoyable and that is acceptable for virtually any age viewer. Read More

Product Overview

The inmates of a German World War II Prisoners of War camp conduct espionage and sabotage campaign right under the noses of their warders. While the enemy is often gullible, easily fooled or downright incompetent the real strength of Hogan s men are the elaborate ruses and sometimes dangerous lengths they will go to complete their mission.System Requirements:Runtime: 672 min.Format: DVD MOVIE

Editors Note
Note Despite a historically and morally questionable premise, the 1960s sitcom HOGAN'S HEROES was wildly popular during its premiere run and continues to remain one of the most classic (not to mention utterly unique) comedy series in television history. Set in a Nazi prison camp during World War II, the series follows a group of Allied POWs--Englishman Peter Newkirk (a pre-FAMILY FEUD Richard Dawson), Frenchman Louis LeBeau (Robert Clary), and Americans Andrew Carter (Larry Hovis) and James Kinchloe (Ivan Dixon, one of the first African-American actors to get equal billing)--led by the irrepressible Colonel Robert Hogan (Bob Crane) in their hilarious attempts to sabotage the Nazi war effort. Though often mischaracterized as a tasteless gloss on the real-life horrors of Nazi Germany (the series was set in a prisoner-of-war camp, rather than concentration camp), HOGAN'S HEROES was intended as parody and certainly pulled no punches in its unflattering depiction of idiotic Nazi officers such as the pompous Colonel Klink (Werner Klemperer), bumbling Sergeant Schultz (John Banner), and irascible General Burkhalter (Leon Askin)--in fact, Klemperer, Banner, and Askin were all Jewish, and Clary was a Holocaust survivor. This collection presents all 26 episodes from the controversial series' fourth season.

ReviewSource DVD Town
Review "Hogan's Heroes" was a double surprise. A sitcom about a Nazi P.O.W. camp? "Ridiculous," co-star Werner Klemperer told talk-show host Pat Jajak...It was far-fetched, and the walls of the underground tunnels looked like crinkled grocery-store bags, but for viewers "Hogan's Heroes" was pretty much what it was for the prisoners and downed pilots that the POWs helped: pure escapist fun. The final surprise is that the episodes are consistently of the same good quality.

CurrentFilm.com ...a mostly clever, entertaining series that stands up decently years later.
Diane Wild, DVD Verdict The charm of Hogan's Heroes is Hogan himself, played with impish insouciance by Bob Crane.
