My life has gone downhill. I’ve been watching episodes of Hogan’s Heroes.

Hogans Heroes is a classic Peter.  I think LaMa has hit it on the nose.  Then you would have really hit bottom.

Used to watch that when I was a kid. The re-runs came on just as I got home from school.

Robert Clary, the guy who played LeBeau, gave a talk about the Holocaust at my high school. He is a concentration camp survivor. Sobering times, given how much I loved the show.

Most of the cast were survivors of one sort or another, including the Germans.

I wasn’t even here in the U.S. when this started but I do recall seeing some after I came here.  THAT’s how long ago it was:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hogan’s_Heroes

Hogan’s Heroes is an American television sitcom that ran for 168 episodes from September 17, 1965, to March 28, 1971, on the CBS network. The show was set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during the Second World War. Bob Crane starred as Colonel Robert E. Hogan, coordinating an international crew of Allied prisoners running a Special Operations group from the camp. Werner Klemperer played Colonel Wilhelm Klink, the commandant of the camp, and John Banner was the inept sergeant-of-the-guard, Hans Schultz.

The series was popular during its six-season run. In 2013, creators Bernard Fein through his estate and Albert S. Ruddy acquired the sequel and other separate rights to Hogan’s Heroes from Mark Cuban and a movie based on the show has been planned.[1]

I’ll look for it.

Meanwhile my Stalag 13 addiction is still haunting me. Last night I got a dose of Colonel Crittenden as well as General Burkhalter. Please. Help me end this addiction.

Not as old as Hogans Heros Peter, but you’re not the only one to start having marathons with old or older series.  Erik and I did this with all the Star Trek series:  Deep Space 9, Joyager, then Farscape, etc.  We also like to wait until some season series are complete, then watch that season at once as with American Horror Story, True Blood etc.  At the moment we’ve gone back in time just a little and are in to season 2 of The West Wing…I’m loving it!

As an Australian I would have presumed you would have been bombarded with re-runs. I’ve seen it in the UK; it was pretty poor! Some memorable bits and some dated views in there, but it was the 70s.

Watching Hogan’s Heros isn’t too embarassing…

Now me? I watch My Little Pony. Yeah. The new series is… really pretty awesome.
