I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Hogan's Heroes before getting my hands on this Season One collection. I would have loved to have been in the room when the idea guys pitched this show to network executives: it's a comedy, see, set in a WWII German prisoner of war camp, and naturally we'll have some Heil Hitlers thrown around but, really, what could be funnier than that? It's a sure thing. Whatever might have been said in that meeting, the truth is that this improbable idea of a show was indeed a sure thing that hit its mark from the very start. Bob Crane was born to play Colonel Hogan, John Banner ranks close to the top when it comes to supporting actors in a comedy series, and the irrepressible Colonel Klink (played perfectly by Werner Klemperer - who picked up two Emmys for Best Supporting Actor for his trouble) is truly a character for the ages. It's hard to believe this show is now forty years old, some of its star players long dead. I swear, though, I think it's funnier now than it's ever been.
You don't get any special features with the Season One DVD set (although it appears Season Two will include some extra goodies), but you do get all 32 (count 'em, 32) complete episodes from that magical first season of 1965-1966. The pilot episode is in black and white, but all of the other episodes are in color (as CBS boasts at the start of every broadcast). It would be wonderful to hear some commentary by the main players, but the most prominent members of the cast are no longer alive. John Banner died in 1973, Werner Klemperer in 2000; Bob Crane, of course, was brutally murdered in 1978.

Whether it was morally right to set a light hearted comedy in a WW2 German prison camp is, of course, questionable. It's the same question as was asked about 'Dad's Army' in 1968. Making comedic mileage out of times of great hardship, threat and tragedy is always going to raise eyebrows.

However, it's always amusing to see history turned on its head and to see the oppressors bested by the oppressed. It's been done over and over, so it must find audiences.

In UK TV and films we've had Porridge, Dad's Army, 'Ello 'Ello and so on. In the US they had Hogan's Heroes: Of course MASH is somewhat the same kind of premise, conscript doctors dragooned by the Army, which they then outsmart at every opportunity. The US probably had other shows along these same lines that we never saw in Europe. Mel Brooks has made something of a speciality of this strand of comedy with material like Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, The Producers etc. I think Mel was maybe a writer on Hogan at some stage?

So, Hogan's Heroes. A prison camp in Germany in WW2, run by egomaniac Idiot Colonel Klink (excellently played by the dapper Werner Klemperor). The camp is host to a load of captured allied airmen and soldiers. Colonel Robert Hogan (Bob Crane) is the senior officer among these men.

Due to the lax regime in the camp (exemplified by John Banner's excellent numbskull Sergeant Schultz) the 'captives' build extensive underground facilities that allow them to live in some comfort - for example they have a dry cleaner and a tailor's shop making German uniforms and suits down there! These facilities also allow prisoners to come and go from the camp as they please and assist other prisoners to escape to freedom.

I'm not going to rant on about the quality of this show; that speaks for itself. However, if anyone out there is thinking along the lines of xenophobic stereotypes and the propriety of treating a brutal conflict in a light-hearted way then you really do need to see this. Hogan's Heroes pokes gentle fun at everyone, including the "heroes". You might not see the horrors of war but you do get to see the humanity, on both sides, that the more brutal depictions neglect. And, contrary to popular depictions, people certainly don't turn off their sense of humour just because they are in a war.

I'd been humming the theme tune for ten years or so before my son found a lone episode on the internet two years ago. He's now just as hooked as I am to this amazing programme and, of course, Schultz (and his catchphrase) is our favourite. In fact the whole family turn to this series to cheer us up when we've had a bad day. One minor irritant is that 'Helga' was replaced by the more unbelievably wooden 'Hilda' but then she's not in it that much. This is pure entertainment at it's best.

Great to watch with the whole family. Although made many years ago it doesn't age. If you like comedy like Dads Army you will enjoy this series.

I remember watching this as a child. It is timeless like Dads Army and Allo Allo.
Col Klink (Werner Klemperer) is superb, his father was the great classical conductor Otto Klemperer.
It is funny but must be taken tongue in cheek.
If you want to brighten up a raining day, this is the one to watch.
