5.0 out of 5 stars Allo Allo!: The Complete Series One/Two. Dec 26 2005
By Paul
Format:DVD
This set offers the chance to visit a cafe in France during a rather whacky take on the War. The "French" speak with an accent that would have made Chevalier blush (since they're Brits), those playing British flyers are bumbling and stumbling. At any moment, one expects a Mr. Chips to come in and straighter everything out. The Germans have a thick faux-accent as well, and are sillier and much more woman crazy than the English.
In almost any list of the greats of British comedy, Allo! Allo! would have to appear. The writing and creation team that gave us Are You Being Served and Goodbye, Mrs. Noah! bring us to France.
If you have seen these shows on a public television station, this set is a good value for starting your collection.
As Michelle-of-the-Resistance would say "Listen very closely, I shall say this only once: 'You'll love these shows!'"

1.0 out of 5 stars "Package Deal" Dec 1 2005
By J. Dorman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I LOVE this show but my low rating is not due to the content of the set. Instead this is a question of math. I was purchasing the Series 1 set and saw the usual calculation and marketing tool that amazon uses in which they show you the cost if you bought Series 1 and Series 2. Well it seems the price is $55.98 for the two sets, not too bad especially for this great show. Well then I see that they are also selling the "Complete Series One & Two Pack" which is the same thing but instead this one has a cost of 62.99! Buying the set this way doesn't seem to add anything to the package but a higher price. So if you want to purchase both make sure you just add the seasons to your cart seperatly and skip the "convenience" of an almost $7 hike.

UPDATE June 2006: It seems that Amazon has finaly adjusted the price to be in line with the single season packages!!! Hey, Amazon is a big store I figured they get with it sooner or later.

UPDATE August 2006: Scratch the June update it seems the price is back to its $62.99 price. Idiots!!!

UPDATE October 2007: Ok the lesson learned here is that I have watched the price of this box set fluctuate from around $70.00 to $50.00 YOU MUST PAY ATTENTION to the price I don't know why they would be doing this on a somewhat regular basis but I have talked with several people who have been stung by this box set. Watch the prices of these kinds of box sets, PLEASE! It couls mean a savings of as little as a few dollars or in the case of some Star Trek box set listings $300.00!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliantly-written comedy series! May 6 2005
By Mr John Haueisen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the most brilliantly-written comedy series ever. From the very first episode to the last, all the characters are consistent and hilarious. The plots are clever and each builds on previous episodes. Not a single word is wasted; each is carefully chosen to add something to the story.

I won't give away the story lines, so I'll just tell you it is set in France during WWII. The main character is Rene, played by Gordon Kaye, who owns a cafe, and occupies his days trying to balance getting along with the Germans, the French Resistence, the Communist Resistence, his wife, who thinks she can sing, his mother-in-law, British airmen, various onion-sellers, the Gestapo, and the two lovely waitresses with whom he is having affairs.

In some ways it's like the British series, "Are You Being Served." If you have ever enjoyed a single episode, you'll want to see all of them. You'll want to watch them again and again, and share them with friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Farcical German-occupied France---One of top ten Britcoms June 14 2005
By brian komyathy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
These are the French (picture a cafe favored by the occupying Germans in a small french town) and over there in the dark, scheming to foil the Germans are the French resistance. The ONLY problem is that the resistance can't seem to accomplish anything without help, and that help is conveniently sought from the town's cafe owner. This character is a Lou Costello sort of fellow, but with considerably more intelligence; nevertheless, not enough to extricate himself out of the crazy schemes dreamt up by the French resistance leader. This is the plot of the show. Picture an ensemble Laurel and Hardy task-based sitcom werein the caricatured players are stealing/concealing/and playing hot potato with paintings to sell after the war; and are fashioning schemes (in a more adult manner, but reminiscent of the American classic rerun "Gilligan's Island") to return 2 airmen that were forced to bail out of their plane and dropped into this town, back to England. The series is known for it's tag lines; think of The Honeymooners "Bang Zoom"/"I've got a BIG mouth"/etc, "Yes Minister"(from that eponymously named Britcom), & "I know nothing" (from Hogan's Heroes, a show which is more similar to 'Allo 'Allo than not), and multiply by 10. In addition, it's full of innuendo and farcical sterotypes, but remains unoffensive and amusing...as well as being addictively likable. Do give this Britcom a try if any of the above makes sense and seems at all appealing to you. I hope I have given you a feel whether this may be so or not in your individual case. Cheers!

For any Brit this is a MUST especially if you grew up with the series. If you have not seen it and like British humor then highly recommend. It makes fun of the French underground movement in the second world war and the acting is great.
5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest Show Since "I Love Lucy" March 8 2011

This old BritCom from the 1980's is hilarious. In my opinion, it's the best BritCom they put out. Not repeated lately on PBS, I believe because somebody thought it was "insensitive" to the various ethnics involved...but heck, it is what it is (or, actually what it WAS - it was WWII in France). This comedy has just the right characters playing the various parts and is so well done; very original. Only an Englishman could think this stuff up. I re-run it for myself about once a year (takes weeks to watch). I never get tired of watching it and laughing myself sick. And BTW, listem up "Her Majesty!" Gordon Kaye should be knighted for the fine acting he did in this series.
