A reporter in Iraq might just have the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady, a guy who claims to be a former member of the U.S. Army's New Earth Army, a unit that employs paranormal powers in their missions.
In a fictional tavern located in a tiny UN demilitarized zone, during the Bosnian war, spies from all three warring sides are waiting for a foreign spy with a secret weapon that will bring victory to the side that obtains it.
René Artois runs a small café in France during World War II. He always seems to have his hands full: He's having affairs with most of his waitresses, he's keeping his wife happy, he's trying to please the German soldiers who frequent his café, and he's running a major underground operation for the Resistance. Quite often, the Germans' incompetence itself is what nearly lands René and his cohorts in hot water; they are not helped either by the locals, who are dreadfully keen to get rid of the Germans, but their blatant and theatrical attempts at espionage and secrecy often create problems that René must solve quickly.

Many incorrect explanations have circulated since the start of the series as to what Captain Hans Geering actually shouts when he does the Nazi salute. Sam Kelly has often said that it had cost him a fortune in stamps writing to people to tell them what it actually was, namely '-tler!' which is short for 'Heil Hitler'. Kelly felt that Hans couldn't be bothered saying all of 'Heil Hitler'. See more »
Madame Fanny is occasionally seen knitting. However, the character knits British style. Any French woman of the time would knit Continental style instead. See more »
Now Read Very Carefully, I shall say it only once.
Allo Allo may not be offensive as it sounds. I even watched this show in Poland. A sitcom about WWII, Germans, French, British, in a small French town at a small cafe, Renee's. He owns it with his idiot wife, Edith, who helps her ailing, bedridden mother, and hides 2 British airman in her wardrobe/closet. Renee has enough on his plate with his constant infidelity relationships to his servant girls. He always comes up with an excuse to have them in his arms at one time or another. The French resistance and the French communist resistance only complicates Renee's already complicated life. Despite the fact, that the leader of the communist resistance is also in love with Renee too. Michele of the French resistance always says "Now listen very carefully, I shall say this only once." There's plenty of laughs to watch and enjoy on this show. Don't miss it.
