<p>Allo 'Allo!: The Complete Series 1 (DVD)</p><p>Meet Rene, the most wanted man in occupied France. Women want his body. The Resistance want his brain. And the Nazis want his sausage. In a small cafe in Nouvion, France, this harassed proprietor is having a difficult war. With the German Army in residence at the bar, Rene is risking his neck to aid the Resistance by hiding two British airmen and a radio transmitter upstairs. As if this wasn't enough, Rene has also got involved in hiding a priceless painting in a garlic sausage, which even now is being sniffed out by the Gestapo. But Rene's real problem is his wife, Edith, and what she will do to him when she finds out about his affairs with two sexy waitresses!</p>

The central character of 'Allo 'Allo, a cafe owner in occupied France during World War II, is cowardly, venal, adulterous, and yet ineffably charming, thanks to the whimsical performance of Gorden Kaye. Rene (Kaye) helps the local Nazi commandant hide a valuable painting of a bare-breasted Madonna, helps the local Resistance hide British airmen until they can be smuggled back to England, and helps himself to the lovely charms of his two waitresses, Yvette (Vicki Michelle) and Maria (Francesca Gonshaw). The farce flies fast and thick; the Nazis are greedy clods, the Resistance fighters are neurotic obsessives, and the British airmen are jaunty dimwits--'Allo 'Allo cheerfully offends everyone, including old people, homosexuals, and onion sellers. The humor isn't subtle, but the cast enjoys themselves and Kaye keeps the show moving with a world-weary shrug. --Bret Fetzer
