Another fine written episode
23 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

There is an important underground agent, Scott Becker, that has been captured by the Gestapo. With all the valuable information that Becker knows, London sends a message to Hogan to promote the escape of Becker ASAP. But with Becker being guarded by two Gestapo officers in the local hotel, it will be difficult to spring the agent.

Meanwhile in the prison camp, Klink is expecting one of the most important Generals in the Third Reich. General Kammler has just been assigned as the Commander of the military district and is on his way to inspect Stalag 13. Upon arriving in camp, we learn that Kammler and Schultz served together in WW1. In fact Kammler says that Schultz saved his life. Kammler has even offered Schultz a change in assignments which Schultz refused. However, Kammler wants Klink to keep him abreast of all of Schultz's activities.

Well it is not long before Klink, wanting to promote himself in from of Kammler, wants to give Schultz a medal. Klink invites Kammler to the ceremony that will be in the same hotel where the agent is being kept. Hogan now has a chance.

Another enjoyable episode. Clever writing and nice acting comes together to give us viewers another fine show. Was not really sure why Klink was never removed from his post but that is all part of a TV sitcom. With the comedy high and the story interesting- you can not help but like this episode.
