Editorial Reviews

In a small café in occupied France the harassed proprietor, Rene, is fighting his own war. With the German Army in residence at the bar, Rene is risking his neck to aid the Resistance by hiding two British airmen and a radio transmitter upstairs. As if this wasn't enough, Rene has also got involved in hiding a priceless painting in a garlic sausage, which even now is being sniffed out by the Gestapo. But Rene's real problem is his wife, Edith, and what she will do to him when she finds out about the affairs he is having with two sexy waitresses!

5.0 out of 5 stars After a long pause... May 18, 2008
Verified Purchase
Is seems like there was a long pause between this series and the seventh (it is explained in the bonus material) - the time has passed in the scenario, the actors look way older (those who made it to these shootings, unlike the 2nd reincarnation of "It is I, LeClerc").
The series contains less episodes, but the 1st one is quite long, almost a movie. The jokes are funny, some are new, and the Leutenant Gruber impersonation of der Fuehrer is unsurpassable!
The British airmen disappeared, so did the Italian Captain, but the Madonna is fully back and so is the 'ruthless' Communist Resistance.

The series is saturated with anticipation of the war end, that way (the French) or the other (the Germans), and as usual the Resistance is quite preoccupied with money, be it ransom from Germans or cash from Rene's till, all along with some futile attemps to do the Germans a real damage.
And, of course, there is a somewhat new for these series 'pudding club' plot, which ends to everybody's satisfaction (almost).
I am not sure whether this is the last one, or there is more, but, never mind, we already know who won the war: those fighters like Rene that were dragged into the vortex against their will and survived against all odds...

5.0 out of 5 stars British Comedy June 7, 2008
Verified Purchase
'Allo, 'Allo is the best Brit comedy ever. I've seen most of the other sitcoms on BBC but this is tops. If you want a good laugh this is it. You must see this from the beginning, Series One, to get the whole story.

5.0 out of 5 stars The end is near for Rene' June 8, 2008
Verified Purchase
The end is near for Rene' and the Allo Allo saga. Even with new cast members (changing actors but not new roles), the program made the passage of two years in a blink.

You need to be an Allo Allo fan to 'get it' at this late point in the series, but this two disk set is WELL WORTH adding to the collection.

If you have never seen the series, you need to begin in the beginning to build the plot of this, the most popular syndicated comedy of all time from the BBC..... YES, this series has larger distribution than Monty Python, Faulty Towers, Black Adder, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Allo, 'Allo is a Wonderful series. November 2, 2013
Verified Purchase
'Allo, 'Allo is a great series of rollicking British comedy. Anybody who wants to sample this series should start at the first episode and keep going, although the episodes don't make a lot of sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a great series September 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
This series is really good, and "I shall say this only once" is one of the best catch phrases I have heard lately. And there is a surprise ending in volume nine.
