Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Probably the most successful bad idea in television history, Hogan's Heroes took an appalling premise--the suffering of World War II prisoners-of-war played for laughs--and turned it into a hugely popular series that ran for six seasons. Wily Colonel Hogan (Bob Crane, previously a regular on The Donna Reed Show) and his merry multicultural band of P.O.W.s--including cocky cockney Newkirk (Richard Dawson, pre-Family Feud), softhearted Frenchman LeBeau (Robert Clary, later to appear on Days of Our Lives), clumsy explosives expert Carter (Larry Hovis), and steadfast radio operator Kinch (Ivan Dixon), one of the first black characters on television to be treated as an equal by his peers without any self-congratulatory comment--carried out spying and sabotage against the Third Reich, always back in the cozy confines of Stalag 13 by the end of the episode. But the good guys were not the show's real draw; Hogan (charming to some, smarmy to others) may have been the titular hero, but audiences loved high-strung Nazi commandant Col. Klink (Werner Klemperer, who won two Emmys for the role) and the adorably bumbling Sgt. Schultz (John Banner), whose cries of "I see nozzink, I know nozzink!" became the show's biggest catchphrase.

The fourth season finds the snappy one-liners, preposterous plots, oversexed atmosphere, and Nazi buffoonery all firmly entrenched. Brief bits of suspense help to balance the clownish antics. The missions change a little from episode to episode (instead of a bridge, they have to blow up an ammo dump; instead of a beautiful lady spy, they have to help...no, it's always a beautiful lady spy), but a reassuring sameness is what guarantees the success of any sitcom. It's interesting to speculate about why audiences embraced these goofball Nazis only a couple of decades after the revelation of the decidedly unfunny concentration camps. Perhaps, as the Cold War wore on and the threat of atomic annihilation felt increasingly likely, mocking the previous threat to the world made the Soviet Union less terrifying; or maybe Klink and Schultz are hapless 1950s parent figures, outwitted by their more worldly hipster children. Regardless, even contemporary viewers with a taste for daffy pranks may find Hogan's Heroes a bit of sweet comfort food. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

The inmates of a German World War II Prisoners of War camp conduct espionage and sabotage campaign right under the noses of their warders. While the enemy is often gullible, easily fooled or downright incompetent – the real strength of Hogan’s men are the elaborate ruses and sometimes dangerous lengths they will go to complete their mission.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purchase another season of hilarious antics, Schnell September 14, 2006
Format:DVD
Another trip to Luftstalag 13, mind you still there has never been an escape from Stalag 13. Maybe, Just maybe this will be the year of the first escape!? Not if the Iron Colonel has anything to say about it.

Another hilarious season of Hogan's Heroes. The series really began to excel at the fourth season, the show was established, and the cast had grown together.

We see some familiar guests' appearances, Colonel X, with his elite commandos appears, who outranks Hogan. Many funny episodes from the crew at Stalag 13, and Schultz is fantastic. As stated earlier extras are lacking, but at least we have a reasonable release time. So hurry and add this season to your collection and hope it holds you over until the fifth season is released.

4.0 out of 5 stars It just never gets old. August 17, 2006
Format:DVD
I have been eagerly awaiting the release of season four as I am sure many other have been. I do own all previous seasons on DVD and am thrilled with the audio/video transfer. But has anyone else noticed a weak mastering of the audio on season 4? I have to turn up my TV louder to hear it which produces that "white noise" sound in the background. Oh well, I can deal with it. Can't wait for season 5!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good escapist TV, but with NO extras August 22, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Same outrageous comedy/action as in the first three seasons- that's good.

The color/picture restoration is good (on the couple of episodes I've watched so far) and I haven't noticed any sound trouble- that's also good.

This time around you get only 26 episodes instead of 30-32 and no extras of any sort- that's really a cheap stunt for the DVD people to pull. No deleted scenes, no subtitling (it is closed captioned), no added extras (season 2 had several very good ones), not a single episode has a commentary or added photo gallery. This time around the producers didn't even bother to thank the surviving cast members and their families, you get nothing beyond episode dates and outlines on the DVD cases.

The set is well worth owning, I just hope that when season 5 comes out someone puts out some extras of some sort- they really add to the experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fourth Season Still Going Strong January 29, 2007
Format:DVD
The Fourth Season of HOGAN'S HEROES picks up right where the Third Season ended. HOGAN'S HEROES was one of the few series where, with the exception of Ivan Dixon's departure toward the end of the show's run, there were no drastic changes season to season. That is probably why the series did so well in syndication in that you could mix and match or otherwise view the episodes in any order without losing continuity. Even those shows that did harken back to an earlier storyline, like Klink's recurring encounters with General Burkhalter's sister, could well stand on their own merit.

Much as we noted in the second half of Season Three, the overall story lines were a little more vague regarding the war's timeline. In Season Four we have additional references to Stalingrad as if it were an on-going campaign.

Toward the end of the fourth season there are an increasing number of out-of-camp episodes with Hogan and his crew found in the local hotel, a hospital, or a German headquarters. There are also more episodes with Burkhalter and Hochstetter appearing in the same show. I still marvel at the fact that the outdoor Stalag 13 set was only separated from sprawling Culver City by tree studded earthen berm. Overall the production team did a fantastic job in making us believe that the camp was out in the county somewhere. Season four is the first time you can spot two California palm trees sneaking into the scene over background barracks roofs.

As the show neared the end of the 1960s the number of episodes per season also dropped. Season Four contains 26 shows. That is still a healthy number when you consider the pitiful number of episodes boasted by today's half-hour television series.

Hogan and his team have changed very little.
