Fine episode with just one small beef
1 September 2015 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

I like this episode and its guest stars (Harold J. Stone and John Hoyt in a very limited role) and I like any episode that takes us out of the camp, but I do have one small beef. I don't like how panicky Hogan gets in the prison cell in Berlin, in the hotel room after the Gestapo man arrives, and again in the hotel lobby just before he "forgets" the briefcase. I understand that his life is in peril throughout most of the episode either because his Stalag 13 operation is most assuredly part of Decker's info to be turned over to the Gestapo or he can easily be identified as an impostor when posing as Decker.

But throughout the series Hogan and his heroes are always in peril and it is usually Hogan who always takes control and calms down everyone else when they get their backs to the wall. However here he is bordering on a panic attack and has to be calmed by Major Teppel. Just a little too much out of character for me, but still a fine episode.

One side note, I wonder what insults LeBeau was saying in French to Klink during the interrogation that made Major Teppel chuckle to himself. I'll bet it was something good!! :)
