Okay, y’all, I’m gonna give this a shot. Every Saturday, I’ll share a picture or video clip from a movie or TV show– maybe tell a little bit about it or something, too… At least, that’s the plan. We’ll see how it goes. 😉
Since this is what I’m currently bingeing on, we’ll start off with Hogan’s Heroes and my favorite character: Sergeant Schultz. Enjoy! 😀
Hogan’s Heroes is one of my favorite TV shows ever! It’s an American sitcom set in a German POW (prisoner of war) camp during World War II. It ran from 1965 to 1971 — a bit before my time, yes — but I grew up watching re-runs of it at my grandparents’ house.

~ Storyline ~
Colonel Robert E. Hogan leads an international crew of Allied prisoners running a Special Operations group based in a German POW camp: Stalag 13. The prisoners actually use the camp as a base of operations for Allied espionage and sabotage against Nazi Germany as well as to help defectors and Allied POW’s from other camps to escape Germany. Werner Klemperer played the incompetent Commandant of the camp, Colonel Wilhelm Klink, and John Banner was the inept Sergeant of the Guard, Hans Schultz, both of whom were constantly being manipulated into helping Col. Hogan’s group complete their missions.
