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!]]>

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...
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.
