With help from Hogan, Klink may avoid a firing squad
3 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Field Marshal Kesselring visits the prison camp, Klink all of the sudden provides information that is top secret in the German Army. Field Marshal Kesselring arrests Klink and sentence him to death by firing squad.

The rest of the episode is Klink getting ready to face his demise and Schultz telling everybody that there is good news and bad news. Nothing wrong with the script but it just seemed all to routine.

By the time the episode ends we have been treated to another show that really has little interest in the story. But we can thank Hogan as he will come to the aide of his Commandant with a scheme even Klink is oblivious too. Not a highly entertaining show but one that at least seems plausible.
