Hogan’s Heroes is an American television sitcom that ran for 168 episodes from September 17, 1965, to March 28, 1971, on the CBS network. The show was set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during the Second World War. Bob Crane starred as Colonel Robert E. Hogan, coordinating an international crew of Allied prisoners running a Special Operations group from the camp. Werner Klemperer played Colonel Wilhelm Klink, the commandant of the camp, and John Banner was the inept sergeant-of-the-guard, Hans Schultz.
The series was popular during its six-season run. In 2013, creators Bernard Fein through his estate and Albert S. Ruddy acquired the sequel and other separate rights to Hogan’s Heroes from Mark Cuban and a movie based on the show has been planned.
Not as old as Hogans Heros Peter, but you’re not the only one to start having marathons with old or older series. Erik and I did this with all the Star Trek series: Deep Space 9, Joyager, then Farscape, etc. We also like to wait until some season series are complete, then watch that season at once as with American Horror Story, True Blood etc. At the moment we’ve gone back in time just a little and are in to season 2 of The West Wing…I’m loving it!
