Hogan's Heroes is what good TV looks like. This show has the ability to have key characters be naive and possibly quite stupid but do it in a way were it makes you love them even more for it. The character chemistry works so well with Holgan and his fellow prisoners operating a covert operation under their dim witted, ignorant but most of all lovable Sg t. Scholttz and their overconfident, stubborn, and foolish Kommandant, Colonel Klink. These characters are like a banana, a bowl of ice cream, and chocolate. All good alone but together it turns into an amazing concoction that is delicious, fabulous and hilarious! OK well a banana split might not be hilarious but its still the same idea. Bottom line is that this is a classic show and has all the elements of what makes a comedy great so if you feel like changing up your flavor of comedy put this in your queue and in 3 episodes you'll be hooked.
One of my favourite shows from the 60's. This show was well written and well acted by all of its main characters. Too bad the politically correct have butchered this show or else it would have alot more fans than it already has. Still with all its negative reviews by TV guide and others its DVD seasons sell very well. The show was consistently good throughout its six year run but it drops a little by season five. The DVD releases are all excellent with lots of extra's and beautifully remastered and very reasonably priced. My advice is to burn your TV guide and turn on Hogan's Heroes.
Hogan's Heroes show is the most clever show I have ever seen. Imagine if real prisoners were like that. It would be funny. I think that before you see this show's dating. watch and episode and then say that it is not funny, exciting, and good for the whole family. Just try not to judge the show by its age. This show shows the tactics that Hogan is smart enough to get out of prison one million times over, and that seargent klink is truly the dumbest man on earth. Watch this show and I know you will definately love it.
Hogan's Heroes is a great show. In my opinion the best characters are the one from col. Hogan and sgt.Schulz. The best way to see the show is in german, it wins a lot. In the german version there is an extra character added to the show, which how ever never appears in scene. It is the Frau Kalinke, which is supposed to be Klinks maid, with who he has fluid exanges from time to time. The accents of the doubles is also quiet funny, sgt. Schulz for example speaks an bavarisch accent. All in all even if quite unrealistic it is in my opinion the best show ever.
