Introduction:

I know nothing ... NOTHING! Actually ... I do. This is the final season of the classic POW comedy, HOGAN'S HEROES! That's right, Hogan (Bob Crane) and his band of buddies (Larry Hovis, Richard Dawson, Robert Clary and Kenneth Washington) are back for one last hurrah to trick and tease Colonel Klink (Werner Klemperer) and involve the blustery Sgt. Schultz (John Banner) in their schemes. All 24 episodes of the sixth and final season are here for your enjoyment from Paramount/CBS DVD!


Memorable Episodes / Notable Guest Stars:

Memorable episodes this season include "Klink's Masterpiece" in which Hogan convinces Klink to believe he is a great artist in order to meet underground contact at an art gallery. "Lady Chitterly's Lover" Parts 1 and 2 in which an English traitor who could pass as Col. Clittendon's brother, parachutes into camp with information for Hitler. "The Gestapo Takeover" is the one in which the Gestapo move into camp and take over with plans to send Klink and Schultz to the Russian front. "Kommandant Schultz" in which Schultz lets his new powers as camp kommandant go to his head. "The Gypsy" is the one in which Hogan dresses up LeBeau and passes him off as a gypsy. And more...

Guest stars this season include Brenda Benet, Noam Pitlik, Sigrid Valdis, Barbara Babcock, Harold Gould, Bernard Fox, Forrest Compton, Monte Markham, Leon Askin, Howard Caine, Alice Ghostley, Ruta Lee, Kathleen Freeman, and more!


Packaging:

The set continues to be small in size ... well, more compact, which is a good thing. The main cover art features Schultz, Klink and Hogan front and center, with the series logo over them. The back of the box features three-color photos from the episodes as well as a nice shot of the group together.

There are two discs per case and each case holds two discs, so there are four in total. The discs themselves continue to have a simple background. Disc 1 contains episodes 1-6. Disc 2 contains episodes 7-12. Disc 3 contains episode 13-18 while Disc 4 contains episodes 19-24.


Menu Design and Navigation:

The main menu immediately starts with a list of the episodes, plus a Play All feature. On top of the episodes list are video clips of the series. The sound of drums, like marching drums, is playing in the background.


Video and Audio Quality:

The video and audio itself, really, are very good and there is nothing I can really complain about. The episodes are uncut in length, and each runs a good 24 to 25 minutes in length. Chapter skips are available on each episode, and it is always a handy feature.

Special Features:

On the back of the box, it claims "Nussing is missing." Well, there is something missing. SPECIAL FEATURES! Sadly, once again, no bonus features are a part of this set. It is a shame that the final season of such a popular show will not get any special features. Thankfully, the earlier seasons had a ton of them. They could have at least possibly spread them out over the course of six seasons.


Final Comments:

Another generic set, sadly. I miss the days of customized disc art, customized slip sleeve case art. I guess it is cheaper to use the same graphics throughout. Moreover, the lack of special features is a big disappointment. Of course, though, any fan of the show will definitely have to pick this set up to complete their collection. It was a good run and I am sad to see another one of "my sets" come to an end...


Final Numbers (out of 5 stars - How our point system works)

Video Quality: 4.5/5
Audio Quality: 4.5/5
Special Features: 0/5
Menu Navigation/Design: 4.5/5
Overall: 4/5
