Hello.  I've been going thru the seasons-though not in order.  It's been a thoroughly enjoyable experience.  I grew up during this series initial run, but, I did not watch it then.  I'm glad I did not.  It is not for children.  I've watched an episode here & there thru the intervening years, but, only recently decided to view the seasons in their entirety.  

So many little things now come to the front.  Even the military drum riff starts on a black screen, before the fade in.  Such an intense moment as there are 6 riffs, before its breaks upon "Hogan's Heroes."  Even Klink exiting his office building during the intro is special as the door is opened & closed for him.

I am pleased I've discovered this site and I will try and live up to the quality I see.

Welcome Culburn.  Glad you like this show.  I was introduced to the show as a very young man and thoroughly enjoyed it.  As an adult, having since studied my history, I can view this show in a new light.  Yes, there were many light hearted moments, but I found it much more... thrilling, if you will ...  knowing the seriousness and gravity of what the Heroes were doing.  As a kid I did not understand this.  I hope the Heroe's desperate situation do not dissuade you from allowing the youngsters to watch.
