I think Allo Allo is the best british comedy show after Monty Python, Fawlty Tower and Blackadder, what do you think of this marvelous show, with so many great caracters, and many funny moments.

'Twas a fun show.  The episodes were virtually interchangeable (every episode had all the same jokes) but that was part of its charm.  And you gotta love Officer Crabtree.



Klop!

Rene's response - "Well, in that case, could you please speak slowly?".
 
Crass, ridiculous and brilliant! Loved it.

Yes, it was very good. The best comedy by David Croft (and Jeremy Lloyd).

As some of you know, David Croft died recently - as Crabtree said, "Mister Cruft has pissed awee!"

It was a great show, yes, but personally I don't think anything he wrote would ever top Dad's Army.

Loved it - shallow, predictable, repetitive, smutty, childish, borderline racist, brilliant!

I would descend into a childish fit of giggles every time the policeman said "good moaning".

I like Dad's Army too. The humour in that series was maybe a bit more diverse than in 'Allo Allo. Still, me personally, I prefer 'Allo 'Allo.

It was a silly comedy full of silly and predictable and repetitive jokes but I watched it every single week and found it hilarious as a teenager.

The German chap with the little tank was always amusing as he was so blatantly gay.

But I had a thing for Helga (Kim Hartmann)... especially in her underwear.

And that poor old fallen Madonna with ze big boobies...

Not to mention the most incompetent Gestapo men in history - Himmler's nephew, Otto Flik & the brilliantly named Englebert Von Smallhausen

For an 'old school' British smut fest it was certainly miles better than the Carry On movies, Are You being Served?, It Ain't Half Hot Mum and Hi Di Hi etc but to place it in the same company as Python and Blackadder is the best gag Croft Perry and Lloyd never wrote.Wink
