1.0 out of 5 stars Unsuitable goods. 17 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVDs were unsuitable for playing on British TVs as they were formatted for US sets. This was not made clear in the sale. I am very disappointed as I have had to return them to USA at my cost and therefor will be out of pocket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Season of A Great Comedy Series 29 Jan 2006
By Andrew Hoover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Season 3 of Hogan's Heroes has some of the top ranked episodes, including War Takes A Holiday when Hogan tricks Colonel Klink and Gestapo Major Hochstetter (Whooo eeez theese mahn?) that the war is over so prisoners can escape. In The Ultimate Weapon Colonel Hogan convinces Schultz he has ESP, with the predictable outcome of disaster for the Nazis. Colonel Crittendon shows up in The Crittendon Plan, which only endangers Hogan's smooth running operation. I've been a fan of Hogan's Heroes for 40 years, and can't wait to get each DVD set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Season Still Packed with Laughs 3 Sep 2006
By Kevin R. Austra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The introductory CBS logo is gone, but the show remains in top form. Season three of HOGAN'S HEROES is the point at which the actors have become inseparable from their roles.

More Col. Crittendon, Hochstetter, but less of Hilda. This season featured larger roles for Ivan Dixon, Larry Hovis, Robert Clary, and Richard Dawson.

Some of the best shows of the series appear in this season. Included this this collection are episodes about the snowman tunnel, Schultz conveniently misplacing his rifle while under fire, and Crittendon's assignment to replace Hogan at Stalag 13.

Yes, it is still perpetual winter at Stalag 13. Despite the lush California greenry in the background we still believe that it is freezing cold outside. The actors must have been roasting in their jackets and overcoats. Additionally, you do not have to look too carefully in some of the season three episodes to spot a soundstage or studio warehouse in the background -- towering over the barracks set. Then again, after three years it was becoming difficult to find new camera angles from which to shoot.

Klink still reports to General Burkhalter. Leon Askin, as usual, is great in this role. However, throughout the series' six-year run there was always a question as to why a Luftwaffe colonel reported to a Heer general. We will just have to assume that Burkhalter, whose military duties were never fully described in the series, was the local non-combat Wehrkreis commander. From a military heraldry standpoint it is interesting to note that Burkhalter sports a ceremonial Luftwaffe dagger suspended from his leather belt.

Like the costuming of the SS in other television series, HOGAN'S HEROES SS and Gestapo personnel, who should be wearing field gray uniforms in wartime, continue to don their pre-war black attire. I suppose that it made them more readily identifiable as the bad guys. Season Three marks the first time we find Burkhalter and Hochstetter together in the same episode. According to Brenda Scott Royce's book HOGAN'S HEROES: BEHIND THE SCENES, the Hochstetter character was used almost interchangabley for Burkhalter when Leon Askin was unavailable for a show.

There are a couple additional faux pas in this season. In one episode we find Klink summoned to report to a high ranking SS general. He tries on hats trying to decide which one to wear for the visit. The peaked cap he dons for one moment is not his usual Luftwaffe hat, but is a field-green German army (Heer)cap. Additionally, the mystery is solved as to how Sergeant Schultz's cartridge belt remains level around his equitorial girth. Most German soldiers wore leather Y-suspenders to support their heavily laden belts. In one show, while Schultz is temporarily in charge of the Luft Stalag, we see that his overcoat is tailored with metal clips on each side so that his overcoat actually supports his belt.

By the way, doesn't anyone find it peculiar that the French underground is operating so deep inside Germany? Luft Stalag 13's fictional location is in the middle of Germany by Hammelburg. During World War Two, Hammelburg was actually the site of a Yugosloav and American POW camp that housed General George S. Patton's son in law after his capture in North Africa.

In Season Three there are numerous clues that it is 1944 as there is talk of an impending D-Day invasion, two episodes about rocket fuel, and General Hammerschlag's plan for the destruction of Paris prior to its capture by the Allies. In fact, the title of the Paris episode, "Is General Hammerschlag Burning?" is a direct reference to the Larry Collins and Dominique Lepierre book (and later movie of the same name) IS PARIS BURNING? However, a few episodes later, Hogan tries to persuade Klink to play his violin in a POW camp stage production of "Escape Follies of 1943." Much like M*A*S*H, the actual chronological date is not important.

Remember too that this was the year that Desilu Studios was absorbed into Paramount. Some episodes credit Desilu, while others list Paramount. The original STAR TREK likewise shared this change. Considering the fact that the Culver City 40 Acres lot, which was actually 29 acres in size, was surrounded by urban sprawl the studio did a fantastic job depicting the Luftstalag as being located in the country. Indeed, when I stumbled onto a several websites featuring photographs of Stalag 13's set in the northwest corner of the lot, I was amazed at how the narrow, grassy and tree studded berm effectively shielded the lot from the highway, homes, and businesses directly on the other side. About the only recurring clue that civilization lurks nearby are the utility lines above the trees.

As another point of trivia, the edge of the HOGAN'S HEROES set was directly on top of the site of GONE WITH THE WIND's Tara mansion. Unfortunately the dilapidated remains of Stalag 13 were bulldozed in 1976 to make way for modern sound stages and buildings built for a procession of subsequent studio lot owners.

Once again the DVD set is of exceptional quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars This set has the greatest episode of the series!!!! 7 Mar 2006
By Movie buff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Without a doubt, "War takes a Holiday" is probably the best episode of "Hogan's Heroes" and one of the funniest sitcom presentations ever on television. The absolute absurdity of "Hogan's Heroes" is neatly summed up as Col. Hogan and the boys convince the Germans that the war is over so as to secure the release of some important allied prisoners.

Every one of the classic "Hogan" characters plays his part (with the notable exception of Larry Hovis, who is strangely AWOL this time around) to maximum effect as the prisoners concoct and enact a scheme whereas they isolate and control communication around Stalag 13 and convinice everyone, prisoners included, that World War II has ended. It is especially priceless to see Howard Caine's Major Hochsteter join in the mirth as he unwittingly allows Hogan to secure his staff car for the prisoners' escape, as Hogan suggests it would be a nice gesture..."seeing that the war is over."

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS EVER 17 Sep 2006
By C. STEWART - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I only discovered "Hogan's Heroes" in the mid-'90s through french-dubbed reruns while living in France. I very quickly found the plots and characters hilarious, and the fake german accents incredibly funny. I also found the concept extremely bold: even though the series took place in a pseudo-POW camp and not an extermination camp, swastikas and SS uniforms were all around, and the situations and nazi organizations portrayed were bound to shock more than one. AND the series was originally aired about 20 years after the liberation of the concentration/extermination camps. How could they pull off introducing the project to studios, having it accepted, and then airing it? I don't know, but I'm certainly grateful they did. This is one of my favorite shows if not THE favorite, along with "Sanford & son", "Barney Miller", "Taxi" and "Seinfeld"... Now viewing them in their original English version is great, since some of the humor in the storylines was lost during the translation to French, although I find the german accents less ridiculous in the US version. Anyone fluent in French and having access to French-dubbed episodes should look out for Hochstetter's and Burkhalter's appearances.
I'm sorry nothing as good has been made in recent years; any TV series' attempt at being funny lately has only turned out ridiculously retarded, save for a very few...
