I used to have a coworker whose father in law had served in WWII.  Apparently, he'd bitterly exclaim "it wasn't like that at all" whenever reruns of the show came on.  He wasn't outraged, just annoyed.

So little time had passed between the war and show I'm surprised the greatest generation allowed it to air.   :scratchhead:

I read where it was a very popular TV show in Germany.  My father enjoyed it.

What bugged Dad, who saw a LOT more combat action than most as a member of Darby's Rangers, was when someone would get shot in the torso in a TV Western and just fall over and die.  Dad would say something like, "In real life, there'd be blood spattered all over and he'd be conscious and crying for his mother."

Hogan's Heroes was a terrible show.  I think it was an attempt to make a comedic TV version of Stalag 17.  So unbelievable in every way.  And even if you could swallow your intellect and temporarily accept the ridiculous premise, the "humor" still isn't humorous.   Why it is still on in syndication (Me-TV), is a source of never-ending amazement to me.

I don't like Bob Crane.

He was a bum. Spent his last decade performing in minstrel shows around Phoenix. @UglyBob talked about meeting him once where he tried to hit on WOUB I believe?

I liked this show when i was a kid. It's unwatchable now. Some shows age well and some do not. 

However, to be fair, I think someone who decries "HH" because it's an unrealistic portrayal of war, has missed the point.

It's an unrealistic portrayal of everything it tries to portray.  Total crap, IMO.

It did have a lot of pretty women. 

Probably just trollops who slept with Crane.  Have weird sex with Crane = one appearance on Hogan's Heroes.

This was actually true. 

He did end up marrying Patricia Olsen the very attractive secretary to Colonel Klink

Speaking of MeTV.... I find it hard to believe "F Troop" was even remotely popular. It's really awful.

I never received my autographed copy.   :(

Huh?  The rest of us all received our complementary autographed copies.

Now you can spend time not reading his mystery while not enjoying grape pie.  UB would like you to sick your barrister on him.  He'll be eating grape pie and enjoying John Grisham novels for months.

Robert Clary, who played the character Le Beau in the television series, spent several years of WWII in German Concentration Camps where several of his 14 siblings died. His life story is a fascinating read.

He was also on Days of Our Lives.

Ok, now there was a documentary that realistically portrayed life in every way possible!  Surpassed only by the documentary 'Dark Shadows'.

All were surpassed by Mary Hartman Mary Hartman
