Show Summary

Meet René, the most wanted man in Occupied France: Women want his body. The Resistance wants his brain. And the Nazis want his sausage! In a small café in occupied France the harassed proprietor, René, is fighting his own war. With the German Army in residence at the bar, René is risking his neck to aid the Resistance by hiding two British airmen and a radio transmitter upstairs. As if this wasn't enough, René has also got involved in hiding a priceless painting in a garlic sausage, which even now is being sniffed out by the Gestapo. But René's real problem is his wife, Edith, and what she will do to him when she finds out about the affairs he is having with two sexy waitresses! (BBC)

    That was the funniest line in the show, spoken by Michelle, leader of the French resistance. This was a comedy like none other, which demonstrtates that the British are masters when it comes to making us laugh. Set during World War II, 'Allo 'Allo! tells the story of René Artois, a French café owner in the village of Nouvion. The Germans have occupied the village and stolen all of its valuable artefacts. These include the first cuckoo clock ever made and a painting of The Fallen Madonna by Van Klomp (known to those who have seen it as The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies). The local commandant has decided to keep them for himself after the war and forces René to hide the painting in his café. Hitler also wants the painting, and sends Herr Otto Flick of the Gestapo to the town to find it. Flick, in turn, conspires to keep it. The paintings are duplicated by a forger, get mixed up and put in knackwurst sausages. One is sent to Hitler on an ammunition train, which gets blown up, one is hidden, and the other is eaten for dinner by Flick himself. This is just one of the many things that happen in that series. Among the most memorable characters are René, the owner of the café, Edith, his wife and possibly the worst singer in France at the time, Yvette and Mimi, the café waitresses who hated the Nazis, Michelle, the leader of the French resistance, Mousier Alfonse, the undertaker, Officer Crabtree, a British spy posing as a French police officer, who thought he knew how to speak French fluently but was actually pretty bad, the British airmen Fairfax and Carstairs, Herr Flick, the local Gestapo agent, among many others. The cast was very good, and even today they are all regarded as one of the greatest casts to ever been chosen for a sitcom. I give this one a 10 out of 10, for still making me laugh until this day.moreless
  • I still love watching this show!

    I still love watching this show! It has been a favourite of mine since the first time I saw a rerun of it when I was younger. It made me laugh every time and I was usually still laughing long after I had turned off the tv. The story lines were well written and even though you knew things would always go wrong when happened seemed to always be unexpected. Comedy at it's finest, the British seem to be able to do it better than any other country. The casting was perfect and the acting was superb. It really was one of a kind!moreless
  • The best show ever!

    Allo' Allo' is the funniest show that was ever broadcasted on TV. Extremely funny plot, witty dialogues and the perfect cast is what made it very successful. The occurence takes place during the World War II, in a little French town called Nouvignon. Every character speaks english, but with the different accents. The Germans and the French do not understand eachother, but we understand all of them. The main character, Rene, owns a little cafe. With the help of his wife Edith and two waitresses, he runs his buisness well, and every day something new and interesting happens there. The regular guests are mostly German officers that come to the cafe to relax and have a drink. Throughout the series, we meet many different, wonderful and very funny characters. This is a show worth watching over and over!moreless

    'Allo 'Allo plays out in occupied France during the 2nd worldwar. The caféowner René is wanted by everyone; by the french resistance, the german nazis, his wife, his waitresses and last but not least the German leutenant Gruber... :-D The series is very silly, but in a really good way. The dialogue is great, allthough it is all in english. When they speak french or german they do so in english with the appropriate accent... :-) hehe... René has his problems trying not to choose sides in the war, but ending up choosing all the sides. This is a funny, funny show, and I can absolutely recomend it to everybody!! :-Dmoreless
  • Unbelievable...

    "Allo, allo" is a true classic when it comes to TV shows. The humor is quite simple, a foreigner trying to adapt in the new country with a new language (which, of course, causes problems in the comunication). The characters are also classical, one is stupid, one is humble and so on... This might make you think "so, what is the special thing that makes it so good?". And, frankly I do not have an answer to that question. Perhaps it is the simplicity and originality, perhaps it's the actors geniality... I suggest you watch the show and tell me what you think! :)moreless
