Default HOGAN'S HEROES, MCHALE'S NAVY, AND THE POST 9/11 GWOT SITUATION COMEDY

http://vannevar.blogspot.com/2012/05....html?spref=fb

Quote:
I saw a Fox-bashing graphic the other day that I thought was clever and then it led me to perplexing questions.

What would a holocaust survivor think of Hogan's Heroes in 1965, 21 years after D-Day? What would a child who had lost their parents to the Nazi's think of Hogan's Heroes?

Similarly, McHale's Navy in 1962. It took 21 years after Pearl Harbor for it become acceptable for a pop-culture comedy to have a Japanese sailor (Fuji) as one of the good guys to be protected. Fuji's backstory was that he was a deserter from the Japanese Navy and McHale's crew kept him dressed as a POW as a cover.

If your husband or brother died in World War II, when would a comedy featuring "good Germans" or "good Japanese" become not only non-controversial but also commercially viable? It seems like it takes 21 years. How long will it take after 9/11/01? Given the genre, what will the next war comedy show podcast look like?
