    General Burkhalter was my favorite character. The old series still has me laughing.

    Hogan's Hero's was popular in the mid-60's because it was a comedic spin-off of a hugely popular movie of the era, "The Great Escape". It was also shown at a time when everyone watched network TV and had none of the alternatives we have today.

    Add that to the political correctness factor and it equals massive flop. Mel Brooks was the last one to semi-successfully pull off a comedy about Nazi's and nothing Mel Brooks ever did could be done today.

    If they want to make a lot of money have one Network that would exclusively show nothing but sitcoms and cartoons from the early fifties thru the early eighties. However they wouldn't do that, they just wanna keep coming up with all the current PC trash. Last series that I watched on TV was "3rd Rock From The Sun" and I bought that series on DVD. Amazon Prime members can still watch that whole series for free. Sayonara.

    Well sure there are writers, it's just that most of them(90% at least) have their brains choc full of nothing but Political Correctness and Progressive Agendas. Sayonara.

    I remember watching an old movie about U.S. subs where the sailors who left the boat used what appeared to be Winchester lever action rifles.

    There are already multiple networks like that. Boomerang for cartoons and MeTV, Retro, Antenna TV, and Charge! among others for sitcoms and dramas.

    No, they cannot reboot. nothing can compare to the original.

    I remember as a boy, watching Hogan's Heros with my grandpa (who immigrated from Germany before WW2 started). He loved the series more than I did. his 2 fav programs, Hogan's Heros and All Star Wrestling. Go figure. Crazy Kraut.

    Why don’t the remake the crap movies into good, or at least watchable one? Why take great movies and turn them into post masticated piles?

    Hogan's Heroes and All in the Family were the two shows that had my Dad crying in laughter into his mug of beer.

    I can't see how either show could ever be recreated and be as funny in today's politically correct climate. I'm afraid this is just another way of keeping actors and actresses employed, allowing the crews, producers, networks, and lastly their sponsors to continue making $$.

    That and I hope noone ever tries to do a remake of Blazing Saddles...who could they ever get to adequately repeat these famous and iconic lines - with the same comedic result?

    Reverend Johnson: "Oh Lord! Do we have the strength to pull off this mighty task in one night...or are we just jerking off?"

    Bart: "Excuse me while I whip this out."

    Lili Von Shtupp: "Hello handsome, is that a ten gallon hat, or are you just enjoying the show."

    Mexican: "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!"

    *************

    Some things should just be left alone.

    I would love to see how the SJW would screw up "My Three Sons". The LGBTQ crowd would have a field day with that one.

    This. The series finale sucked. I'd have even been okay with a movie follow up.

    I don't think there was a finale. I think it's cancellation was unexpected and during the time of year when they were not filming. I heard or read as story about a studio exec getting a burr under his saddle and canceled "everything with a tree", some very popular shows. I think that included Hogan's Heroes.

    John Banner died not long after the show was cancelled, so that might have ended it when he died. I can't imagine Hogan's Heroes without Schultz.

    ETA: If you ever read the trivia, it's interesting that so many of those actors had connections to Hitlers camps or were victims of the Nazi's. IIRC, Banners family died in a camp.
