I was CD shopping yesterday, and found the first two seasons of Hogans Heroes on DVD. I really wanted "Miami Vice", but felt I really needed the laughs, so I bought the heroes instead. Not very accurate on weapons or uniforms, but totally hilarious, I laughed all night.

I love that show, reminds me of when I was kid. The funniest part about that show is that all three Klink, Schultz and General Berkhalter (the three main German characters) were all jewish in real life. Saw an interview once with the guy who played Klink and he said he wanted to do it but only if he could do Klink in that (dumb German bumbling idiot) way that he did.

That was a great show. I wish someone would convince TV Land to put it back on, along w/ McHales Navy, and some other oldies.

Hogan's Heros is definitely a favorite of mine. The comedy is priceless.

I also enjoy Combat!, this show is alot more realistic, but it's not a comedy. Its supposed to be a realistic portrayal of a US squad in France and their interactions with the Germans. Each episode has a pretty good message, and I think it's pretty amazing production-wise, given it was made in the 60s and on a TV budget. If you want gun porn, this show has plenty!

They don't make shows like those anymore.

I have Miami Vice season 1, it's an especially important show in a historical sense, because of the soundtrack. They changed the way TV was done and bridged the two medias. Its cheesy now, compared to The Shield, but it was groundbreaking in its day.

I never missed Hogans Heros when it was 1st on TV. Alot of laughs. Bob Crane was a DJ on a local radio station was I was a kid.

Ahhh, the good 'ol days. Hogan's Heros and Manix..two of my favorite TV shows.
They wouldn't last a month with todays programing. No homos or bimbos to capture ratings.

One of my favorite shows.

My favorite episode is: Will The Real Adolph Hitler Please Stand Up

Thats the one were Carter runns around the camp acting like Der Fuhrer, scaring the shit outta everyone, including Burkholter.

The actor that played the Frenchman "LeBeau", Robert Clary, came to my elementary school (Oxnard, California) in the mid 70's and talked to us kids about the Holocaust.

He was a concentration camp survivor.

Deep stuff for a little kid, especially because my family always watched and enjoyed the show at home and he was there in person talking about something that wasn't funny at all.

The reruns on HDNET are so clear compared to the old crappy reruns. Thanks HDNET

I have read that the idea of a Hogan's Heroes movie has been bounced around between different screenwriters and film directors for literally years now, but none of the major studios wants to touch it for the double-reasons of a sitcom in a Nazi POW camp and Bob Crane's gay-lover murder.

Of course, as we have recently seen--the bit about the gay lover probably isn't the main objection anymore.....

+1
Watch it every mon-sat at 8am

Being only 24, I've never seen the show before I got HDTV. I saw the movie it was base off but only heard about the show. Now its one of my favs.

I don't understand people who routinely buy TV series on DVD. I could understand a favorite show, but the people who line their shelves with show after show.....you watch it one time and you know what happens, after all. And paying for what was originally free bugs me, even if there are any extras included .Not what I would spend my money on, but oh well.

I also watch Hogan's Heroes on HDNET every morning. I watch it before going to work.

The main question, ala Gilligan's Island, is: Helga or Hilda?
