A COOL TRIBUTE TO JACK HAIG

"It's nice to know the BBC is at least paying attention to some of the things their customers want. Thank Heaven they've been releasing 'ALLO, 'ALLO! on a pretty regular basis. Now, let's just hope they do the same for WAITING FOR GOD.
I'm really looking forward to series five of this show. Whether there's going to be any bonus material included in this series remains to be seen, but even with out it, it's still a great watch.
The cover art for volume one of the series is a great tribute to the late actor Jack Haig, who sadly passed away on 4 July, 1989.
I also like the fact that the price is going to be much lower thn we first thought.
The one thing I don't like about the bonus material for the series thus far is that they include cast bios in every series. There were nine series in all, so in my opinion they should have waited until the end of series nine to include them.
I also don't like the fact that series four had no bonus material at all.
Other than these small complaints, I think this is a fantastic addition to anyone's collection of British comedies."
Only the Brits can spoof themselves so well

"i have series 1-4 and each gets better. only the Brits can spoof themselves, as well as others, so well. Brits doing French is bad enough, but a when Gestapos get funny you are in for a treat. this won't go over too well in Germany, but maybe the young Germans might smile."
Lengthy yet enjoyable series...

"I don't know the story behind why Series 5 contained so many episodes, but all are real classics. I must admit ALLO ALLO really utilized its serialized (or soap operatic, if you will) format the best during this season. New characters, like Denise, were introduced and older favorites, like Officer Crabtree, were given more to do.
Speaking of good, old Crabtree, this series features him in one of my favorite scenes of the whole show's run. Just wait until you hear his rendition of "Louise" when Rene and the gang go undercover as a band. Simply priceless.
This set is more expensive than the others because it's being released in two parts, but it's worth the extra cash if you're a fan of the show or just British comedy in general."
