A parody of the BBC wartime drama "Secret Army," this WWII-set BBC sitcom centers on René Artois (Gordon Kaye), a French café owner in occupied Nouvion, France, who always manages to get himself into major hot water with the authorities. What provides many of the laughs are the Resistance's ever-failing, half-baked plans to get their airmen back to England. Carmen Silvera plays Edith, René's out-of-tune, cabaret-performing wife.
Summary of Season 1 (1984) - 2 discs
For nine seasons, this much-loved BBC sitcom followed the travails of René (Gorden Kaye), a shopkeeper in occupied France who manages, with great regularity, to get himself into trouble with any number of higher authorities. He's hiding two British soldiers, and he's hidden an expensive painting in a sausage. To top it off, he's having affairs with two sexy waitresses -- and making sure his wife doesn't find out is more difficult than he thought.
