A rather routine script.
6 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A rather routine Hogan's Heroes script where an American General is captured by the Germans and just so happens arrives at Stalag 13. With the prize catch, Klink has called Field Marshal Von Heinke to be present at this special attraction for the German side of the war. With the American General somewhat of a rude prospect for escape, orders are received from England that the General is to be freed at all cost. Now Hogan must think up a scheme to free the General from the Stalag.

It just so happens that Hogan decides to capture the visiting Field Marshal and propose a prisoner swap. But it will not be easy when Klink gets suspicious about the events.

Not the most exciting or funny show in the lot but it does entertain enough to make for a nice watch. There is a funny scene when Schultz is suppose to be watching the captured plane but gets side-tracked when food is offered. Other than that scene, it is very routine.
