  • A re-run, believe it or not. Hogan's Heroes.

    Brilliant satire of stereotypes matched with absolutely amazing production values. It is frequently compared to MASH, but the comparison is ephemeral.

    To start, the production values in MASH were lousy. The show is allegedly taking place during the Korean War of 1950-1953. Yet there is nothing in the show that would suggest any specific timeframe. The hair and costume styles are contemporary and the scenes non-descript at best.

    This in comparison to Hogan's Heroes, where the attire - though less so the hairstyles - are of 1940s vintage. Ditto the sets which included authentic 1940s era automobiles and trucks.

    More important, the scripts. MASH could be humorous, but it tended to be preachy. Its message was about as subtle as a drop forge. Yes, we get it, war is no fun.

    By contrast, HH was more shrewd. In dealing with caricatures and stereotypes, the show managed to mock war and - more importantly - Naziism. This latter point being rendered more significant in that MASH tended to treat communism vs the west as the B Team vs the A Team with no deeper reflection.

    Bottom line, even decades later, Hogan's Heroes has managed to stay fresh. MASH, by contrast, seems worn and tiresome.

    So there!! Aren't you glad you asked?

    P. S. Runner ups include Seinfeld, Bewitched - the latter also brilliant satire, and yes, The Office.
