Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A top 10 show in its first season (a top 20 show in its second), Hogan's Heroes, like Gilligan's Island, got little love from critics during its seven-year run, but it would come to be ranked among TV's guiltiest pleasures. Hogan's Heroes has gotten something of a bad rap. It is not a situation comedy set in a concentration camp. It is, instead, set in a P.O.W. camp, where Col. Hogan (Bob Crane, a former top radio jock, in his star-making role) and his men "trick the dumb Germans," to quote the late Crane's former wife, Sigrid Valdis, in her enlightening commentary on the episode, "Hogan Gives a Birthday Party." While Valdis reveals that the film Von Ryan's Express was a key inspiration for the series, the show seems to takes its cue from Billy Wilder's Stalag 17, with its blend of comedy (albeit more broad than darkly cynical) and espionage action. Though camp commandant Col. Klink (Werner Klemperer, who would win an Emmy for his career-defining role) was, in the words of one character, "a bubble-headed fool," Hogan's Heroes was not quite a burlesque of bad taste.

Seemingly in response to wide-ranging outrage over the show's misunderstood premise (a Mad magazine parody at the time was brutal), there are some bracing dramatic moments that cut through the comedy. In "Operation Briefcase," Hogan is recruited to assist an attempt to assassinate Hitler. Hogan disdainfully tells the German plotter, "It's the least you can do, considering you're the same bunch of guys who put him in business." In the episode "Will the Real Adolf Hitler Please Stand Up?" Hogan explodes at one of his men when he imitates Hitler. "Imitating that nut in Berlin," he fumes. "It's not all that funny." But somehow, Hogan's Heroes is, thanks to Crane and Klemperer ("You talk about two people born to play a part," remarks Valdis), not to mention John Banner as the jowl-cheeked buffoon, Sgt. Schultz, and the rest of the crack ensemble, including real-life concentration camp survivor Robert Clary as LeBeau, Richard Dawson as Newkirk, Ivan Dixon as "Kinch," and Valdis herself, who debuted this season as Klink's secretary, Hilda, she of the scene-stealing tight sweaters and low-cut peasant blouses, and whose chief dialogue consisted of "Col. Hogan to see the commandant." The extras are a retro blast. The most bizarre is a commercial in which Carol Channing is smuggled into the barracks to enjoy a Jello dessert with Hogan and company. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

HOGAN’S HEROES: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON focuses on a group of American soldiers, led by Colonel Hogan (Crane), who are confined in a Nazi prisoner of war camp called Stalag 13 during World War II. While trapped in Stalag 13, the inmates conduct an espionage and sabotage campaign right under the noses of their warders. Because the Germans, led by the bumbling Colonel Wilhelm Klink (Emmy Award®-winning actor Klemperer), are often gullible, 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 Hogan's shenanigans (no spoilers within) August 11, 2005
Format:DVD
They say that humor is the best medicine for what ails you. They are not kidding. When I need a boost, I plug in Hogan's Hereos and find myself in fits of laughter. I found out from a friend of mind, that the German's actually love this show. Even though the sitcom is not an accurate portrayal of WWII (it was not meant to be), it still serves it's purpose well in providing a humorous look at something that otherwise would be sad. My favorite scenes, with out spoilers, is whenever Le Beau speaks to the dogs and scolds them and gets them to do what he needs them to do. One time, Le Beau sent the dogs away saying that it was not time for him to be found yet. Another good scene is when Kinchloe impersonates a German Kommandant. Richard Dawson even had the chance of doing a very bad impersonation of Klink over the phone to give orders to the gate guards. It was hillarious. All truth being told, I'd have to rate the entire series as 10 stars. I saw it way back when, and saw it now, it still pops a gut! I would have to admit that my telling of the funny parts is not so funny. So, give it a try, I am sure you'll love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captives with a Captive Audience April 9, 2006
Format:DVD
Season Two picks up where Season One left off. The only significant change was that Sigrid Valdis joined the cast permanently as Klink's secretary. Valdis guest starred in an earlier Season One episode. One of the things that makes Season Two so enjoyable is that there are no significant changes in plot or characters. Hogan and his men continue to foil the Nazis while at the same time protecting Klink from being sent to the Eastern Front.

By its second season, HOGAN'S HEROES lost its top ten spot in the ratings, but maintained a very respectable position in the top 20s. This was no easy feat for a World War Two sitcom. John Banner is just as loveable as Sergeant Schultz. During the second season there was increased professioal rivalry between Banner and Klemperer in each episode. In the end, Schultz, even when he is in the background of a shot, always steals the scene with his boyish expressions.

True to all Season Two DVD releases, HOGAN'S HEROES boasts special features including home movies taken on the set with narration by Sigrid Valdis. There are also some promotional spots by Klemperer and short clips of cast appearances on other shows. Additionally the opening DVD selection menu has more graphics and sound effects. The quality of the DVD release is exceptional.

Realize too that this show is 40 years old. Its historical setting makes the sitcom timeless. HOGAN'S HEROES continued its Bing Crosby Production schedule at Desilu studios and the outdoor lot adjacent to Gomer Pyle and Mayberry. Note too that most of the outdoor episodes are supposed to be taking place in the wintertime.

5.0 out of 5 stars A genuine feel-good show for the whole family March 31, 2006
By Breyel
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched just four episodes of "Hogan's Heroes - Second Season" last night, and I must say what I have viewed already convinces me the show has lost none of its charm since I first saw it, way back in 1966. Even my 16 year old daughter was pleading to watch more of the zany antics from the cast of Stalag 13; she couldn't stop laughing.

I too was amazed -- after not having seen the syndication of the show in over 20 years -- at how good Werner Klemperer, Bob Crane, John Banner et al really were; they were such comedic geniuses. Their timing and acting was so convincing, no matter how farcical their schemes. Moreover, the concept of Hogan's Heroes was in itself a clever premise for satirising the Nazis.

All of the shows have been digitally remastered, albeit pan and scan format. The sound is in Dolby 5.1 (mono). Only the filmlet extras, i.e. the gags, Bob Crane-Sigrid Valdis' wedding, Jello/DreamWip commercial with Carol Channing, Leslie Uggums appearance, Air Force recruitment ommercials and two promo spots with Gary Moore-John Banner and the entire cast, are in their original condition. There are also a number of radio interviews. Nevertheless, they are wonderful additions of the show for fans.

With so much jocularity going for it, I can't wait to watch the other episodes on this 5-DVD set, which incidentally is packaged in three slim DVD cases. There's also a nice synopsis of each show on all of the cases. Based on the few shows I've seen of "Hogan's Heroes: Season Two" I've already placed my order for "Hogan's Heroes: Season One", and quite possibly "Hogan's Heroes: Season Three".

The programme was, and remains, absolutely hilarious! "Hogan's Heroes: Season Two" is one hearty laugh after the after...a genuine feel-good show for the whole family.
