The Germans seek an escaped prisoner named Michaels, who also happens to have made off with a truck carrying a German gunsight. It falls on Hogan and his men to get Michaels and the gunsight to England. To accomplish this, Hogan convinces Klink he is fatigued and should have an Officer's Club to relax in. The ploy works and they begin to build it but are actually building a boat with the plan of sailing Michaels out. Written by tomtrekp

At least the comedy was top-notch.

This is one of those episodes that is so far-fetched that a viewer is either going to like the show or think it is stupid. But for me I am going to take the middle ground on this episode since the concept was interesting but the production was lacking.

Captain Michaels has escape from another camp and seeks out Hogan to return him to London. Michaels was also able to steal a truck which just happens to contain a computerized gun sights that the German have been working on. Now Hogan is going to have to think up a plan to not only get Michaels back to London but also the gun sights.

Since the Allies are not going to be able to have a submarine available to take things back to England, Hogan is going to have to come up with his own way to get the items back to Allied hands. He actually talks Klink into letting them build an officer's club. But it will not be a regular officer's club given that Hogan builds a yacht. Guess how Hogan is thinking about getting Michaels and the sights back to London.

The whole thing was really silly. But there were some good comedy lines which made the viewing of the show actually entertaining. Not the best of the episodes but one worthy of a watch.
