From Amazon.co.uk

David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd's sitcom 'Allo 'Allo started life in 1982 as a modest one-off spoof of the classic 1970s drama series Secret Army. A throwback to an earlier era during the 1980s heyday of alternative comedy, the show's decidedly un-PC mix of bedroom farce and crudely drawn national stereotypes was subsequently stretched over nine series in all (1984-1992), making it TV's successor to the long-running Carry On series. 'Allo 'Allo was not only similarly preoccupied with seaside postcard humour, it was also blessed with a cracking ensemble cast (including Carry On veteran Kenneth Connor) whose sheer energy eked out comic gold from even the laziest jokes about humourless Germans, cowardly Italians, "Tally ho!" Brits and onion-selling Frenchmen. Like Croft & Lloyd's Are You Being Served, it was the cast interaction more than the material itself that produced the laughs. Gordon Kaye deserves much of the credit for keeping the show fresh. Whether he's plotting with the sexy Resistance leader, in cahoots with the Nazi commandant about a priceless painting of "The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies", or fending off the attentions of sex-starved waitresses under the withering gaze of his wife Edith, bumbling Rene is the lynchpin around which the endless farce revolves. Despite its determination never to vary the formula from week to week, the show had at least one virtue--it wasn't afraid to offend anyone. --Mark Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest Briitish farce comedies ever 25 Sep 2013
By Miss M. Potter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This 16 DVD set is the same set as the previous release with the same artwork. The only difference is the packaging. The box is much slimmer and stands upright. The discs themselves are exactly the same.
It is a fabulous set though. Here we get the complete nine series of the hit comedy all in one place. Allo Allo was such a fantastic comedy series with strong originality.

Rene Artois owns a café in a northern French town during world war two. Helping him is his wife Edith and shapely waitresses Yvette and Maria. Rene has to pander to the needs of the occupying German forces. And at the same time try to do his bit in helping allied air men evade capture.
This seems like yet another world war two series, but it is actually a great comedy dig at all of the over the top and over serious programmes on the subject.
The series has brilliant characters such as the Nazis Colonel Von Strohm, clumsy Captain Geering, gay Lt Gruber, limping Gestapo officer Herr Flick and his sidekick Von Smallhausen and of course Helga of whom Herr Flick makes kinky demands of affection.
The Germans should be predictably nasty evil bad guys but they are actually just the occupying force that are just as much loveable buffoons as the British or French. They are just great characters.

The café is also a safe house for two gormless British air men Fairfax and Carstairs who end up hiding in ridiculous places. These two are also buffoons with equally stereotyped World war two British accents and the series is a great send up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Allo Allo is magnifique 10 Sep 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember watching this as it was broadcast years ago and as I now live in France in an area with strong links to the resistance movement, it seemed appropriate to buy the DVDs. I was not disappointed. They have come out as fresh as if just made. The "fallen madonna with the big boobies", "Listen very carefully, I shall say this only once" and other catchphrases still make me laugh out loud. This was a great comedy series and every lover of comedies by David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd has to have this one. I shall watch it again and again and still be laughing for years to come.

3.0 out of 5 stars poor info 19 May 2011
By b-man
Format:DVD
I have to agree with other reviews that the box set is a let-down as regards info. The Christmas 1991 Special should have been between Series 7 & 8, but was shoved on the end of Series 9. Without a listing of episodes, I thought this one had been missed, only to find it when I viewed the last disc. Other than that, it was great to actually see the whole series in proper order for the first time. It made the storylines a lot clearer.

Allo Allo was one of the greatest achievements for the writers David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd, who also bought us "Dads Army", "Hi De Hi", "You Rang M'Lord" & "Are You Being Served" - which if you like Allo Allo, you may want to try these series too.

Broadcast from 1982 to 1992 and after a whopping 85 episodes, Allo Allo is still a regular visitor on our TV screens with BBC1 still showing it every now and again!

During the 1970's the BBC made a fantastic war drama called "Secret Army" which showed a cafe owner in Belgium at the helm of a resistence group helping British and Allied airmen to escape back to Britain. This was a serious drama and was extremely popular even in the former occupied countries. It was this programme which inspired Allo Allo and gave the writers the idea of making a comical series about the war. They did this very succesfully with "Dads Army" in the 1960's when people were still affected by the war, but this time around they aimed at being less politcially correct!

The plot is ever so simple which is probably what makes it work, we follow the very strange life of Rene Artois a cafe owner in a small town in occupied France during World War 2. He lives with his tone deaf wife, her mother and two gorgeous waitress' with whom he is having an affair with, except no-one knows about the other!! He becomes unwittingly involved with helping the resistence fight the Germans and he also has to hide two British airmen in his cafe which is a hotspot for the local German Commander to visit!!! The Germans are shown to be completely incompetant which is hilarious!! the British are shown to have some wacky ideas, none of which really work and the French are portrayed as hapless locals who havent got a clue what they are doing!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good show, ruined by box set 2 Dec 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am currently half way through box set and if it wasn't for the poor quality of the box set I would have given it 5. discs scratched, and what is really annoying episodes jumbled up, they are not in sequence. When putting the box set together they just mixed the episodes up, they are not shown in the order they were aired, and you get completely lost as to the plot. B.B.C. ruined a good product.
