Hogan’s Heroes – The Complete Fifth Season

Colonel Robert Hogan (Bob Crane – Return to Peyton Place) and his troop have been captured by the Germans during World War II and are interred in a POW camp. Sound like a comedy? Well, on the wacky world of television this was a popular comedy series during the 60s. What the Germans never seem to figure out is that Hogan and his gang are conduction espionage and sabotage operations right underneath their noses. Much of the comedy comes from the fact that the Germans are so silly and easily fooled. Colonel Wilhelm Klink (Werner Klemperer – Houseboat), the leader of the German POW camp, is more preoccupied with not being transferred to the front lines than he is with disciplining Hogan et al.
