Performers, Cast and Crew:
Amid the battles of the Second World War, laughter abounds in this uniquely British show, with the first two seasons contained on this release.
SERIES ONE: The hilarious BBC series that won audiences over throughout the 1980s finally lands in the United States. Rene (Gordon Kaye) is in a bit of trouble. Check that, a lot of trouble. A shop owner in occupied Nouvion, France, Rene's hands are full in more ways than one. In addition to hiding two British soldiers, he has also hidden an expensive painting in a sausage. But that's just the beginning. Rene must also try to hide the fact that he's having an affair with two of the shop's waitresses. 'ALLO 'ALLO remains one of British television's most celebrated shows.
SERIES TWO: The hit British comedy returns in all its bawdy glory with this complete collection of episodes from the second season. Rene (Gorden Kaye) is constantly beleaguered by problems, most of them stemming from his overbearing wife. A botched attempt at getting rid of her by faking his own death leads his troublesome spouse to take over the reigns of Rene's cafe, which he leaves to her in his will. Returning as his identical twin brother, he has to renege on his agreement to marry his shapely waitress's Yvette (Vicki Michelle) and Maria (Francesca Gonshaw), and attempt to win back the heart of his former wife in order to regain control of his cafe! Meanwhile, the Second World War rages on around Rene and the cast of oddballs, but this seems to be the least of their problems in this riotously funny show.
