Review

Almost every episode of the daffy Britcom ''Allo ''Allo picked up immediately where the previous one left off--even if that previous episode aired a year before. So at the start of the fourth series, though actor Gorden Kaye has aged around four years, his character Rene Artois--a French cafe owner during the Nazi occupation who only wants to placate the Germans so he can run his business in peace and conduct affairs with his waitresses in private--has only aged around a week. As a result, multiple plotlines extend over the course of the show''s entire history, including the forging of a painting of a buxom Madonna. The fourth series is not the best place to begin watching ''Allo ''Allo, as it begins with Rene and his staff trapped in a British P.O.W. camp, all (including the women) disguised as British officers with mustaches. From there, the farce proliferates, as Nazi officers disguise themselves as nuns, a new waitress with homicidal urges tries to kill every Nazi who enters the cafe, an Italian officer woos Rene''s wife (who is believed to be single because Rene is masquerading as his own twin brother)...and through it all strides the incomprehensible accent of the enormously popular Officer Crabtree (Arthur Bostrom), a British intelligence officer disguised as a French policeman. ''Allo ''Allo desecrates every war film from Grand Illusion to The Great Escape and does so with a breezy smile and a blithe shrug. From the creators of Are You Being Served?. --Bret Fetzer

Release Note

Poor Rene. He was last seen in a prisoner of war camp, trapped with his wife and both mistresses, not to mention the two idiotic British airmen and Michelle, the hardest taskmaster of the Resistance. What''s worse, Cafe Rene and its gin supply are in the unreliable hands of his mother-in-law. More hare-brained schemes, more cross-dressers, more sausages, more fractured accents, more double entendres ? they''re all part of the rich texture of this hugely popular sitcom from the BBC!
