Hogan's Heroes

"Hogan's Heroes" is one of the funniest television shows ever produced. The show takes place in a Prisoner of War (POW) camp called Stalag 13 in the heart of Germany during world War II. The commandant of the camp is Colonel Wilhelm Klink, probably the most incompetent officer in the entire German army. It's this incompetence that allows Colonel Hogan and the rest of the prisoners to dig secret tunnels underneath the camp and use them as a base of operations for sabotaging the German war machine, all the while pretending to be harmless POWs.

The show ran for six seasons on CBS and was nominated three times for the Emmy for Best Comedy Series. Fortunately, all six seasons are available on DVD in a complete series boxset.
