Not too many laughs in this tale.
16 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Hogan gets a late night communication from the allies, he learns that a crate of bullet-proof vest have arrived but is unsure to whom they belong.

A few days later a French officer, Dubois, arrives at the gates of the camp to turn himself into the Germans for capture. Dubois is working for the French underground and they are the ones that the vest are for. But Hogan has to think of a way to get the French officer and the bullet-proof vest out of the Stalag, where both are tightly held. When Klink and Burkhalter get together you know a plan is afoot.

The story was nice but the funny lines were few and far between. Even when the Hogan plan worked it seemed odd that a Frenchman riding around with a crate of bullet-proof vest would not be detected before making their way across enemy lines. But that is the great thing about sitcoms, they don't have to make sense. But I would have loved for this sitcom to have been more humorous than the way it played. After viewing it just felt dull.
