Product Description

First instalment of the fifth series of the BBC comedy farce set in German occupied France during WWII. Lusty Lothario Café owner Renee and his tuneless wife Edith aid and abet the resistance as the ineffectual German army, here portrayed as effeminate or lazy, are run ragged. In the world of 'Allo 'Allo, the chance of a double-entendre is seldom far away and never, ever missed. Renee runs around with every woman in town, French accents are exaggerated beyond belief, the Gestapo is thwarted, catchphrases like 'Leessen carefoolee, I shall says 'zis onlee once,' are bandied about. Episodes included; 'Desperate Doings in the Dungeon', 'The Camera in the Potato', 'Dinner with the General', 'The Dreaded Circular Saw', 'Otherwise Engaged', 'A Marriage of Inconvenience', 'No Hiding Place', 'The Arrival of the Homing Duck', 'Watch the Birdi', 'René - Under an Assumed Nose', 'The Confusion of the Generals', 'Who's for the Vatican' and 'Ribbing the Bonk'.

From Amazon.co.uk

'Allo, 'Allo! was a wildly popular British sitcom making unlikely humour of the German occupation of France, succeeding because of its sheer lunacy, and the amiable performance of veteran character actor Gordon Kaye, as café owner René Artois. René finds himself surrounded by buffoonish German officers, who are easily duped yet still keep René on his toes, and sometimes in hot water. He also must juggle the imperious French Resistance leader, Michelle DuBois (recurring gag: Michelle says, "Listen very carefully. I shall say this only once"--but never manages to get out the urgent message), his jealous wife (Carmen Silvera), and all his staff waitresses, who find the doughy René sexually irresistible. It is all très French, n'est-ce pas? Yet also very British in its broad slapstick tone; and TV buffs will see more than a hint of Hogan's Heroes, M*A*S*H, and even the old spy series Get Smart. This chunk of season 5, with 13 episodes on two discs, features as many crazy sight gags as ever, including a special "spy camera" disguised inside a potato. Why a potato? wonders René. "Because," drones Michelle in a fake French accent you could drive a Citroën through, "you cannot get carrots that beeg." But of course. Extras include cast biographies and trailers. --A.T. Hurley

Listen very carefully I will say this only once.

This has been a long time coming but well worth the wait. Rene carries on from where he left of in series four having lost Maria in the post Rene has now got Mimi la bonque to contend with she is the new waitress sent in by the resistance, Mimi is a small girl who would love to kill the Germans and Rene has his hands full stopping her and if that isn't enough he still has to hide the British airmen, the fallen madona with the big boobies, the cuckoo clock, and the cracked vase with the big daises as well avoiding Lieutenant Gruber, keeping Col Von Strohm happy with the girls wet celery and the flying helmet, and helping the resistance, not forgetting officer crabtree with his unique French language also deceiving Edith with his affair with Yvette. And to top it all the Italians get involved in the form of Capt Alberto Bertorelli poor Rene how dos he do it.
This is a classic series and there are nine altogether I intend to buy all of them if they all are released (series five part two out in December can't wait)
A very funny program with hilarious innuendoes and stereotyped caricatures that work well together.
BBC have put some classical situation comedies together and this is one of the best .

I absolutely adore Allo Allo, and am thrilled that they are finally releasing more. I thought we were going to have an endless stream of the first few series of everything ever made, and never finish any of them.

Two problems with series 5. Firstly the episodes are shorter; because they did a whole marathon run of 26 episodes they've spread events a bit thinner.

And secondly, and my biggest bugbear, why not just one Season 5 box set? Almost every other programme has them - Keeping Up Appearances, Green Wing, X-Files, Alias, etc

Oh well, here's looking forward to the end of December for the second half.

Now, if only they'll release the next set of Last of the Summer Wine...

Well the BBC has at long last decided to start putting out the remaining series. Except that in Hungary (where I currently live) we have been able to get this series for a year now. Indeed all nine series are out here and they are cheaper than the UK. I can say that having got the lot that series 5 is among the strongest. To my mind apart from the first three which are magic this is the best. Yes they did 26 (and we have to buy series 5 as two sets) but the laughs keep coming. After series 5 I am afraid it is downhill; some of actors change and the scripts get weaker; so make the most of it . Be careful with series 8 as the program that explains what happens between series 7 and 8 came out here as an extra on series 9 because it was a Christmas special.

You just have to see this! The characters are hilarious, they take the mickey out of the French, the Germans, the British AND the Italians, Richard Gibson as Herr Flick of the Gestapo is especially good,and Guy Siner as Lieutenant Gruber. And the waitresses, who are all in love with Rene Artoir!!!

Definately not one to miss seeing.

This is just classic entertainment, the whole series is so funny, if your feeling a wee bit low, put this on and soon you will be chuckling away.
The only downside, once you have started watching, its very hard to stop!!

I feel really sorry for any person who has not enjoyed the 'adventures' of Renee and his compatriots. This is an example of classic British comedy with inuendoes, double entendres and the use of facial expressions to produce absolute hilarity. The Germans love this series because it takes the mickey out of the French and the English; the French love it because it takes the mickey out of the Germans and the English while the English know it is lambasting all three!

I could not wait for the fifth volume of Allo Allo. I saw all the episodes over last weekend and found out that this was just story of a normal cafe owner. The only thing that makes Rene stick out from the crowd is that, the resistance want his help, the waitress want his body and the gestapo wants his sausage. Life is normal in the cafe Rene, or at least as normal as it could get. Rene always gets himself into situatians he really could do without. As for the british airmen, for every ten plans that the resistance carry out in order to help them to escape eleven go wrong. If you really want to have a good laugh do yourself a favour a get this volume. I just kint wit for volume socks and soven!.

Wonderful,sweet, uncomplicated comedy written at a time of great comedy writing, Jeremy Lloyd & David Croft served us well throughout the 80s & 90s. And the cast, They are all so likable that you await the arrival of each one of them knowing that they will be so entertaining in their own particular way.
