We all know the plot of Allo Allo by now but the innuendos are still just as funny, how the series can make us laugh every episode is a credit to the writers actresses and actors, as I've said before this is a classical comedy and I hope the rest of the series will be released soon.
So it's back to café Rene and all the scheming that is going on to get the British airmen back home , hiding the paintings and the cuckoo clock for when the war is over and trying to stop the resistance from blowing up the Germans.
Rene is still avoiding Lieutenant Gruber having an affair with Yvette and when officer Crabtree Shows his face I can't wait for him to speak, his French language is absolutely hilarious, in fact all the actors & actresses perform there character perfectly.
If you have bought all the other series of allo allo then you will buy this and any other series when they are released, after all we just have to see how it all ends in series nine, but first we have to see series six seven and eight.
Please don't waste time releasing them.

Having "rediscovered" Allo Allo a couple of years ago I've enjoyed the continuing themes played out in the French village of Nouvion.
The interactions between the characters are wonderful with both great verbal and visual gags. Richard Gibson's portrayal of Herr Otto Flick deserves a special mention, both for his ability to deliver some very funny lines whilst maintaining a slight menacing edge.
Arthur Bostrom as the vowel mangling English Secret Agent "Officer Crabtree" (disguised as a Gendarme) is another great character and manages to get away with some fairly suggestive words in the guise that he is attempting to speak French!
For fans of Allo Allo, or classic comedy in general this is definitely recommended.

It is I, leClerc.
This is the best comedy World War II, occupied France spoof of all time.
This show was made using the same sets as 'Secret Army' and was one million times more popular.
Secret Army featured a French cafe owner who hid airmen but was serious television.
This show made people laugh and guffaw.
Nine years of comedy (World War II lasted only four years though.) whether it's Mimi laBonk, Madame Edith and her voice, Monsieur Alphonse and his dickie ticker and Yvette and her raucous libido.
Buy this and the others DVDs, they'll have yoiu splitting your sides from D-Day up until now!

The fifth series of the popular sitcom continues as Renee is on the point of a complete nervous breakdown when Michelle of the Resistance instructs him to retrieve the German's secret Enigma machine and also to hide 200 exploding Christmas puddings.
Even though the BBC's intension to attract the American audience with the show by creating 25 episodes failed, the fifth series stands as one of the strongest of the show's run and this second half is just as good as the first.
