Storyline

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.

Goofs

At the end of each episode there is a list of "Cast in order of appearance", but on several occasions, the order of the list does not reflect the actual order in which the actors appear in the episode. In season 5, there are even some episodes where actors are credited in the list without appearing in the episode. See more »

Officer Crabtree: [climbing out of the rubble] There is obviously no piss for the wicked.

One of the best Britcoms ever made
29 June 2004 | by (Brooklyn, New York) – See all my reviews

If you like Britcoms, then you'll love this series. Every line is a joke, and they're all hilarious. Lots of double entendres/sexual innuendoes and a ridiculous amount of zany one-liners.

The episodes are similar, with some running gags that appear every episode, every time with a different twist. As expected with the British playing Frenchmen, the sarcasm is biting, but almost turned around: the English policeman (bobby) who keeps trying to speak french, with the horrible pronunciation and accent makes tears come to the eyes.

This series is excellent, and missed greatly. Buy it if you can.
