Say, does anyone here know 'Hogan's Heroes'? I liked that series quite much. Unfortunately they won't release a R2-DVD and therefore the really nice German dubbed versions will rot in the basement of Kabel 1...

edit: top of the page, neat...

I love dead ringers, my favorites are the hidden camera ones where he pretends to be russel crow/gladiator, people think he's a mad man, and some get really scared!  laff I hate green wing though!

Hogan's Heroes was a pretty cheesy show, but I always laugh at the idea of a world war II sitcom

Well, it was a late-60s show situated in a German WWII POW-camp. Some of the prisoners (the main characters) support the Resistance, spy for the Allies and help people to escape from Germany. They also help the commander of the camp in several situations, as their work would be impossible without his stupidity.

There's even a Wikipedia article about it and some fan sites.

The show is good for quite a lot of laughs, but the plot is always rather shallow. One thing that makes it hilariously funny is - in my opinion - the fact that the German camp commander and the guards ("Schuuuuuultz!" ) can't prevent the prisoners' obvious activities. I only know the German dubbed version and the voices of the Germans are just great. Everyone has a different, heavy  accent (Klink has a Saxon accent, Schultz a Bavarian, Burkhalter a Vienna-style accent and so on) and this is good for some laughs, too. (Schultz: "Oh, mei! Des was i da sig, des schaut ma wieder mal so aus, dass i da besser garrrr nix sig!" *lol*)

I hope they'll air the complete series once again so I can record them.

Sure, Mr. Bean always running that Reliant Regal off the road is slapstick. Mr. Bean is just as intellectual as 'Futurama', except for the fact that 'Futurama' has more nerdy references and the option to use audio. Mr. Bean is merely a silent comedy.

  laff Yeah, they are funny, but the full impact is lost on me as I have only seen clips of the jeremy kyle show. I think the best visual comedy character is his ozzy osbourne, have you seen the utterly butterly ads?

Hogan's heroes sounds good, it's yet another comedy I've got to try and get around to watching!

I agree that mr bean is clever, but in a totally different way to futurama, mr bean would be more difficult to write for I would have thought. Oh and mookie is right, it is a mini!

There are loads of parodies of and references to other sci-fi shows on futurama, the only problem is that I haven't seen most of them!

Futurama

South Park
Greenwing
Malcolm In The Middle

And also I agree with Xanfor, Red Dwarf may not be one of my favourite comedies but it is sure of hell funny!!! Kryton is such a hillarious robot I find it funny when he treats Lister like a baby and says "Want another slurp of tea"   laff

Ok, RS 2thou. For one, my name isn't from a Star Trek character. See my avatar. Two, Red Dwarf is one of your favorite comedies. That automatically makes you my friend, aka, a nerd.  wink

@Dai: Look, I have an IQ of six thousand, you know! For example, instead of coming to PEEL today, I could have rediscovered the theory of quantum mechanics. Or instead of typing that just now, I could have rewritten Hamlet and made it really good. Even so, I still have yet to find the word 'subtlety' in any of my previous posts.  tongue

yeah, but since "subtile" isn't a word, I could only assume that you meant "subtle", typing an "i" accidently.  wink Also, I have a higher IQ than you... loser  tongue

The sound of chugs beats 'cross the net,
Good PEELers, lock up your sons and daughters,
Beware the swiftly flashing wit,
Unless you want to end up nerdy-er.

Chug a Bug, Chug a Bug, he watches Hitchhiker's GTTG.
Chug a Bug, Chug a Bug, he's surely a geek indeed!

Bug: 'Futurama's' on his list,
Bug: A smeghead at his finest,
Only fools and horses work for a living,
And I know it's useless what I'm singing,

Chug a Bug, Chug a Bug, with many a cunning show.
Chug a Bug, Chug a Bug, you're welcome here you know!
