The prisoners ID cards that Capt. Kurtz has issued in this episode are the same ID cards worn by the 'Heroes' to enter the factory in Season 2, Episode 21, 'The Swing Shift'. (Several of the ID cards have the same picture on them.) See more »

Goofs

After wiring the charges on the railroad tracks carter walks past a railroad signal with the red light at the top and the green light at the bottom, as we would see on an automobile traffic signal. In the early days of railroading instead of colored lights stop, slow, and go were indicated by a ball hoisted to different levels on a pole. As a fail-safe to prevent a train from going through a "false green", if the signal failed it would fall to the lowest position which indicated stop. In keeping with that tradition, to this day, railroad signals put red at the bottom and green at the top. See more »

Frau Burkhalter must have some powerful pull.
7 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

General Burkhalter, with strong words from his wife, places his brother-in-law, Captain Kurtz, as adjutant at Stalag 13. And with the new adjutant making life hard for Hogan's gang, it will come as a surprise when he asks Hogan to help him leave the country. But it appears that Captain Kurtz is not really wanting to leave, it appears like he wants to make points with Burkhalter.

Since the viewer was not sure how to take Kurtz- it made the entire episode much more interesting. It was not till the very last of the show until we are sure of the Captain's intentions. With some funny lines and a tight plot this show was enjoyable. Nice watch.
