Must See MeTV Tonight!

This being Veterans Day in America, I’d like to express my undying gratitude to the selfless, courageous and heroic men and women, who we rely on to preserve, protect and defend our cherished freedoms.

As long as we’re speaking of heroes… in a similar, somewhat less serious vein…

Let’s cross-fade to a discussion re the classic sitcom, Hogan’s Heroes, which originally aired over the CBS TV network from September 17, 1965 until April 4, 1971.

“The show is set during World War II, and concerns a group of Allied prisoners of war who use a German POW camp as a base of operations for sabotage and espionage purposes directed against Nazi Germany”

However, it’s the storyline of Season 2 Episode 01, in particular, which I consider to be the most imaginative of this series’ entire, 6 season 168 episode run. And best of all, it’s all slated to playback in prime time, this very night over the MeTV network.

BTW, the reason for my recently heightened affinity for this program is quite understandable. These characters consistently make life hell for every Nazi who’d even dare to cross their path.

Nazis just like Donald J. Trump and the 74,223,369 Nazis who voted for him last November.

Beyond that…

Had the characters Colonel Robert E. Hogan, Corporal Louis LeBeau, Corporal Peter Newkirk , Staff Sergeant James Kinchloe, Sergeant Richard Baker and Technical Sergeant Andrew Carter been stationed in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021, not one of Donald J. Trump’s seditious bastards would’ve gotten within one kilometer / mile of the U.S. Capitol. Hell, Nazi Trump’s Anti-American, “Stop the Steal” rally would’ve never gone down at all.

Typically, showtime for Hogan’s Heroes is 10 p.m., but due to time zone issues, the exact times will vary; so do consult your local listings.

This is Must See MeTV; soooooo… Tune In, Watch It and ENJOY!!

Much Needed Heroes (Vid of the Day)

Today’s clip features a concluding scene from the TV sitcom Hogan’s Heroes… namely, the Season 2 Episode 1 installment, which is titled, Hogan Gives a Birthday Party (which just happened to air, last night, on the MeTV network). Because of the especially clever plot twists and turns, this episode, in particular, has always been a favorite of mine.

Aside: Ever since the resurgence of reprehensible Nazis, right within my own homeland, I’ve felt a renewed, heightened interest in this TV series, which originally aired on the CBS network from September 17, 1965 ~ April 4, 1971. I mean, it feels so damned good to be witnessing even fictitious characters fighting Fascists rather than watching the all too real Donald J. Trump sucking up to them.

Sitcom Concept: Our main hero, Col. Robert Hogan (Bob Crane), is in command of his rough and ready, Allied Forces special ops unit. They’ve all been captured by the Germans, however, that doesn’t mean they’re out of the action. Together, they fight WW-II right from out of a prisoner of war camp… Stalag 13… right under the noses of the narcissistic / inept Camp Commandant Col. Wilhelm Klink (Werner Klemperer) and the secretly antiwar Sgt. Hans Schultz (John Banner).

Episode Synopsis: Col Hogan kidnaps the Stalag 13 visiting, German General Biedenbender, commandeers his airplane and pilots a makeshift mission to fly over and bomb a German oil refinery. He then turns over command to the two shot down over Germany American pilots (who he’s helping escape back to London). Hogan and his men could’ve even flown back with them… to get back into the war, officially, but, instead, they return to Stalag 13 and parachute just outside the barbed wire fences. And from there, they resume their espionage and sabotage activities.
