"Allo Allo!" Has been around since 1982 and has just recently become available in the USA on a decent media.

Basic story is of a café owner René; this is in France during the WWII occupation. He must balance dealing with the local Germans, the Gestapo, the good Resistance, the commie Resistance, having affairs with his female help, dealing with his wife and mother-in-law.

In series five we get more action from the communist resistance; frankly I think the commie resistance has cuter girls and adds some fresh characters to the mix. And be sure to keep your eye on the homing duck.

One nice thing about this series is that they place the name next to the actor at the end of each episode. Most of the actors are well known out side of this series. I was shocked however to find that Gestapo Herr Otto Flick (Richard Gibson) Played British Capt. Newman in Ken Follett's "The Key to Rebecca" (1985) and completely changed his accent.

Package Details - Adieu to a classic 11 July 2008
By Howie - Published on
Here it is... the final series of one of my favorite imports and a surprisingly funny sitcom about the German occupation of France during WW2.

While I feel the series suffered a bit following series 6 after Gorden Kaye suffered serious head injuries in a car crash and one half of the original writing team, David Croft, handed off his portion of the writing duties it still managed to bring hilarity to the war effort.

Before the meat, a bit of commentary:

With the total disrespect shown to fans by studios these days with many stalled, incomplete, or abandoned TV series in the marketplace it is refreshing to see a classic completed, especially a BBC series which tend to be higher priced than standard domestic fare.

As anyone who is looking at this item is surely a true fan I'll not bore you with how good the series is. You already know. So here is what I know about this release.

First, the Special Features:
The Best of `Allo `Allo! - René and Edith reminisce over old times.
Cast Biographies


** Spoilers ahead! **

If you do not want to know what happens in series 9 stop reading now!

From the package description:
"René has great expectations! The end of the war is in sight and he is eagerly anticipating a quick return to normalcy. Unfortunately, this is Nouvion, and normalcy will have to wait while René is blown to smithereens, shot in the rear end while disguised as an elk, and kidnapped by Louise to serve as love slave to the Communist Resistance. Meanwhile, Herr Flick undergoes plastic surgery to avoid capture by the Allies, General von Klinkerhoffen hatches another fool-proof plan to assassinate Hitler, and no one can remember where they have hidden the painting of the Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies. As normalcy recedes further and further into the distance, Michelle plots an escape via the annual fishmonger's parade, and Lieutenant Gruber desperately tries to fix his little tank. Can the end of the war come soon enough to save these desperate fools?"

Episode summaries:

Gone with the Windmill - As the war draws to an end, Gruber and von Strohm return from Spain, their escape attempt having failed. René agrees to hide the painting, still missing a boobie, and suggests the Germans fake their own kidnapping by hiding in the windmill, which von Klinkerhoffen has earmarked for target practice. Meanwhile, a heavily bandaged Flick tells Helga he has had plastic surgery to avoid capture by the Allies.

A Tour de France - Captured by the Communists, René is looking for a way to escape. Meanwhile, everyone else assumes he has been killed in the windmill explosion. Flick and von Smallhausen are attempting to trick Edith by pretending to be British.

Dead Man Marching - Renés backside is full of buckshot after being mistaken for an elk while escaping from the Communists. He now must lay low or face being re-captured, but in the end decides the safest plan is to turn himself in to the Germans, faking amnesia from the explosion.

Tarts and Flickers - Michelle tries to send important microfilm to England via homing pigeon. When that fails, she decides on using a motorised float in the annual Nouvion Fishmongers Parade. Flick and Von Smallhousen pose as waitresses to search for the painting.

A Fishy Sendoff - It is the day of the annual Nouvion Fishmongers Parade, but von Klinkerhoffen, Gruber and the Colonel are heading to Berlin on a most special mission: to assassinate Hitler with an exploding picture frame.

A Winkle in Time - The Allies have landed, and the Germans are in trouble. While a disguised Gruber and von Strohm attempt to mingle with the villagers, Flick and von Smallhausen try to reach the ocean in a mini-submarine via a secret tunnel under the town... Nouvion, present day. A Mercedes pulls into the square where there is a statue of René, the war hero. Old chauffeur von Strohm opens the door for the rich owners Helga and Gruber (now an international art dealer). Inside the cafe is René's young adopted son. René is being assisted to the toilet by Yvette. Upstairs, an older Mimi attends to the bedridden Edith. René is explaining that he never found the painting, when an accident suddenly reveals its hiding place. The painting is now worth millions, but will everyone get their share?

Very highly recommended!

Fantastic ending to a fantastic show! 15 Dec. 2008
By Seema Persad-gobin - Published on

'Allo 'Allo has been one of my all-time favourite comedy series. Series Nine is the final chapter in a wonderfully written tale. I loved the ending! I especially admired the strength of Rene who in real life got into a terrible vehicular accident, ended up in a coma and thankfully recovered. He insisted that he finish the show and saw it through to the very end. I am happy to say that I purchased all nine series from Amazon and this collection is one of my most prized possessions. Truly a fantastic ending to a fantastic show! Two thumbs up! - Seema (T&T)

'allo állo entire series 1-9 18 Nov. 2009
By Angelsdtp - Published on
Verified Purchase
There are few consistently truly funny TV series, despite repetitive punch lines, that brings the kind of humor that can literally have one fall off the couch as this series. Brilliantly conceived, especially the Englishman who THINKS he can speak French, but using English words (or misspellings and pronunciations) this hilarious and heartwarming scenario in alleged WWII German occupied France is perpetually hilarious. The portrayal of German officers, even the Gestapo, as well as the female controlled underground, hit a tone of commonality that even our visiting German relatives cannot get enough of. Series 1-6 was a thoughtful then 70th birthday present, but we just had to order more recently released 7-9 to its completion. How this was missed in its heyday is beyond me, but is once again an excellent benefit of DVD possibilities. No one should miss out on this fabulous fun filled series, but they must be prepared to spend hours upon hours improving their health by laughing over and over. Considering that the entire cast is practically all British it is amazing how they have captured our perception the French character and accent. A very worth while investment, indeed, and one to be shared with others. There are unexpected surprises throughout, and even the replacement of characters due to untimely deaths does little to take away of the ongoing pattern. Do yourself a great favor--invest in this series. You will not regret it.

great fun 24 Mar. 2011

A continuation of the Allo Allo experience.The "WAP" is gone which was a bit of a disappointment as I was beginning to like him. One of the servant girls is pregnant by guess who. Lt.Grueber and the Colonel keep getting into trouble with the General and the communist resistance. The painting of the Fallen Modona with the big boobies is still part of the fun only now one of the boobies is missing so they want Helga to expose one of her boobies so a photo can be taken and some how improvised into the painting.I've lost count of how many forgeries there are of the famous painting. I think the producers have too. The 2 British airmen are finally back in England so we don't get to see them any more. Edith continues to show up when Rene has a beautiful girl in his arms and he still manages to explain his way out of it.The undertaker still grabs Edith's butt, an expression of his love for her. On and on it goes. Laugh out loud fun.They just don't make shows like this anymore.What a pity.

BritCom at its best 20 Dec. 2008
By Eclectic Tastes - Published on

Allo Allo is one of the best British Comedies. This series takes place in Nazi-Occupied France during WWII and is based around the French Resistance around the town of Nuvian (sp?).

Series 9 is the final season of the show and has a great conclusion. The ending wraps up the characters lives in a hilarious end.

I have been a fan of this show for 15 years and have really enjoyed the DVD sets. Great show. Unlike most British Comedies, the humor is more obvious and outrageous.
