    Hogan’s Heroes, my favorite TV show, March 2, 2005
    Tommy Noe (Morristown, TN United States) –

    This review is from: Hogan’s Heroes – The Complete First Season (DVD)

    Finally, Hogan’s Heroes is on DVD. I have every episode on VHS tape, but I have been anticipating the release of HH on DVD. My favorite episodes in Season One are It Takes A Theif Sometimes, Hogan’s Hofbrau, The Scientist and The Safecracker Suite. My favorite characters on the show are Sgt Shultz (I see nothing, I know nothing!) played by John Banner, Robert Hogan played by Bob Crane and Major Wolfgang Hochstetter played by Howard Caine. In an interesting tidbit, Howard Caine plays three different German officers on Hogan’s Heroes. First, he is Major Keitel in the episode, “Happy Birthday Adolf,” (in season one) and he plays Colonel Feldkamp in the episode “The Battle Of Stalag 13″ (in season two).

    I was very excited to get this first season of Hogan’s Heroes on DVD. If you are a fan of the show who has only had the pleasure of watching it on late night UHF then the complete first season will be a great pleasure. The lack of special features will not upset you very much.

    If you however like myself you have the VHS tapes you will notice that the pilot is cut. Whole scenes are missing as well as key lines and jokes. I was planning to dump my VHS copes after buying this. I don’t plan to do so now.

    As this is 17 hours of episodes I don’t expect I’ll notice every missing scene, but if you are going to make a collection is it too much to ask that the actual broadcast episodes as opposed to the cut versions (for extra ads) from UHF be used? I would think not but apparently we beggers can’t be choosers.

    My advice is to pick up the VHS versions whenever possible, but for episodes not available this collection will fill the bill.

    Colonel Klink isn’t going to like this., February 28, 2005

    This review is from: Hogan’s Heroes – The Complete First Season (DVD)

    For those of you not familiuar with the show; Hogan’s Heroes was a great military sitcom. It paved the way for other military shows such as M.A.S.H. and The A-Team. The basic plotline of the show is that Hogan and four other prisoners of WWII are being held in a german P.O.W. camp. Hogan and his friends take advantage of their situation to sabotage the Germans any way they can. It has many hilarious moments, usually resulting from the Germans led by Col. Klink who are incompetent and completly oblivious to what is going on right under their noses. Hogan and his men have underground tunnels and a seemingly endless supply of disguises at their disposal. My favorite character of the show was Colonel Klink who was played to perfection by Werner Klemperer. You can catch him reprising his role in the season 5 episode of the Simpsons “The Last Temptation of Homer” where he is Homer’s guardian angel. I am thankful that this show will finally be available in season sets on DVD. I would also love to see some bonus features on these DVDs but since this is a Paramount release I am skeptical that there will be any. This should be available on March 15. So until then enjoy this list of the 32 season 1 episodes that should all be included on this DVD set.
