I caught this series, by chance, while I was studying in England. I do love British humor. When I saw the very first episode I was pleasantly surprised. It's too bad for I could only watch a few episodes but I enjoyed each one of them...if WWII had been so funny, we would still be making it! I still want to laugh every time I think about this show :) I think the guys who created this series caught the real essence of french people; they make fun of us, of course, but they do the same with the British and the Germans...everybody gets their share. I love that way of dealing with painful subjects such as WWII. Why aren't (real) wars so funny? The characters made a big effort to talk with a really "thick" french accent that, in my opinion, sounded rather real and almost "natural" if I dare say. This show gathers all the ingredients of a good old recipe that will make the viewers spend a funny moment (I give my word); since the show cannot be seen of french TV I'll probably buy the DVD soon.
