I got the complete boxset of 'Allo 'Allo on DVD yesterday
For any Americans reading this and wondering what the hell, 'Allo 'Allo is a British comedy set in a small cafe in Nazi-occupied France during World War 2. It had an intertwined storyline and memorable characters that managed to take a serious part of history and make it thoroughly hilarious without being derogatory or distasteful - though there is plenty of innuendo for those who like their comedies a little saucy.
I also had the luck of meeting two cast members at London Comic Con a few years ago.
It is one of my favourite 'old' (aka pre-2000) comedies, along with Are You Being Served and On The Buses, but what with it being 9 seasons long I have not had to chance to watch it all the way through. To be fair though, when I have stumbled across the odd episode on TV I have enjoyed watching it as a standalone. Then I found the boxset on offer in HMV, and since I got a gift card to there for Xmas I snapped it up!
Both 'Allo 'Allo and Are You Being Served were the brainchild of David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd and are well worth the watch. I don't know if they are on Netflix or anything but if you happen across them on TV or online definitely park your buns and have a crack at watching them.
