is there anything on youtube about it? I'll have a look because you got me intrigued with the accent story.
Actually I know someone from here that talking in the Genoa dialect and a Genoa accent with a French guy obviously talking in French understood each other perfectly :lol:

A poster outside one shop urged people to Dig For Victory, as if it were some kind of turnip.

I was fed up with watching them on Youtube which was why I bought them on DVD ...

As I said I do agree that it went down hill - but it is still better than half the things on offer today...

I, for one, don't see what the appeal is with The Simpsons :? yet they are extremely popular ...

I like this as it appeals to my Carry On style of humour. It's naughty but not too raunchy, there is no real swearing in it and it is something the family can watch ... (I was twelve when it ended!)

Though I loved the twist with Lieutenant Gruber!

In the 25th Anniversary of Allo Allo they had a special show where they interviewed all the stars (the replacement Flick was not interviewed Richard Gibson was ...) Sam Kelly actually said that it was TLER that he said ...

He figured Hans Geering was not really a believer in the Nazi ideals and did not like really like saying Heil Hitler ... so he gave a half-hearted TLER ... So he would seem to be still supporting the regime.

I can remember being at my Ex Mother in Laws house when the pilot episode was shown. She liked me at this particular time of the time I spent with her daughter :P .

I don't know who was laughing more my Mother in law laughing at me or me because I was on the floor rolling about in fits of laughter.

My favourite character was the undercover Fronch Polisemon

[Read this very carefully as i shall post it only once:) ]

My favourite running gag from 'Allo 'Allo:

Rene!

what are you doing with that serving girl in your arms?

You stupid woman!


I love the way edith believed the excuses that followed everytime :D

Conclusion:A book distorts time and space more than blank papers

Ah happiness. I have all the DVDs as I keep thinking of funny bits and playing them over again.
I just love the way everyone is taken a 'pop' at and everyone is trying to out-do everyone else.

What cracked me up was Rene as the male amore and he was gay and Guy Siner as the gay guy and he was straight.

Timeless.

Did he? I thought he missed off the Heil and the Hi and said 'Tler.

He's a chum of mine. I'll ask him.
