Storyline

Set in a bizarre, 1960's inspired version of World War II, action comedy series Danger 5 follows a team of five spies on a mission to kill Adolf Hitler. Danger 5 is the finest group of special operatives the Allies have to offer; Jackson from the USA, Tucker from Australia, Ilsa from Russia, Claire from Britain and Pierre from Europe. In each episode Danger 5 unravels another of Hitler's diabolical schemes as they travel across a myriad of exotic locations. The action and offbeat humour is relentless as Danger 5 mounts a series of thrilling missions which include discovering Josef Mengele's perverted Antarctic death circus, busting down Erwin Rommel's golden murder casino and posting as exotic dancers in an attempt to take out Hitler at his own birthday party.

Danger's Five Vs Hitler
8 February 2015 | by soppiestcorgi93See all my reviews

Danger 5 is a 2011 Australian television series produced by Dinosaur that is a mixture of 50's shows with The Naked Gun movies; the result is a very funny adventure of a group of five super spies serving the Allies against Hitler's Axis.

The humor of this series is very reminiscence of the cult web series Italian Spiderman, freely available on YouTube, this is not mere coincidence, because the creator of Italian Spiderman Dario Russo and David Ashby are the creator of Danger 5.

The heroes are the macho man Jackson(David Ashby),Ilsa a more than seductive Russian woman( Natasa Ristic), the leader of the group Tucker(Sean James Murphy), the intelligent but never listened to Claire(Amanda Simon's) and an agent with special bartender skills Pierre(Aldo Mignone).

Their interactions during the episodes are gold, every character is fleshed out during the episodes giving them personality, traits and even some little, but still interesting, backstories.

During the six episodes of the first season they fight against Hitler(Carmine Russo) in bizarre plots involving dinosaurs Nazis, powerful monsters(Kaijus) that feel straight from Power Rangers or even the dark powers of Hitler's himself in a casino.

There is a lot of visual gags and sound gags like Nazi flags on martinis, cheap sets and effects from the 50s serials, combination of different spoken languages and so, everything is played straight by all the actors so it's even more humorous because it's like the series is not self-aware. The attention to the detail is astounding, it's like everything came directly from the fifties, it's a perfect emulation of everything that made those shows great and not so-great.

There is a lot of references to old classic shows like the Japanese Super Sentai (Power Rangers in the west), Star Trek, Johnny Quest etc. You are always laughing and delighting yourself from all the craziness that is happening.

This series is an instant classic for me, my favorite episode is ""Hitler's Golden Murder Palace" because of how crazy the plot is and how funny everything rolls and my favorite scene is Jackson shooting a cigar to Ilsa mouth's using a handgun.
