    Worst sitcom concept ever, or best sitcom concept ever? You decide!

    Though actually, now that I think about it, I can totally see this working as an Adult Swim style show.
  • Red Dwarf
    I can totally see Robot Chicken having this as a skit.

    what about that one they did about Lincohn's Slave Butler that I saw them talking about on some countdown thing on like E or VH1!?

    I kinda wonder whatever really happend to the actors from this show?

    And if they ever regretted signing up for this sitcom doomed to failure. That would be interesting. Honestly after watching "Too Smart for Strangers" I thought nothing would he does aftewards would top that, but I guess I was wrong. Great job Brad!

    This seems more like something out of Seth Mcfarlands head.

    This whole series sounds like a bad Family Guy joke - In other words... ANY Family Guy joke!!!

    Is it wrong of me to like this? Even though it's completely tasteless? Either way, I will still laugh.

    All this series needed was Steve Urkel to show up and ruin things. :)

    But this was before its time. Oh well.

    The show on before was 'Dad's Army', a sitcom about the British home guard that they only stopped repeating 10 years ago...
  • Argent Larkin
    avatar
    Nope they still repeat it occasionally on BBC2 when they need something to fill in time on weekends.

    Probably because it's one of the most beloved sitcoms in British Television History. If anyone wants a genuinely funny humourous poke at the WWII era, I highly recommend seeking it out; some of the humour is a bit dated, and some may not be amused by the ever-present slapstick, but there's also a healthy undercurrent of dark humour which deserves at least partial credit for my current passion for the stuff.

    Dude, that show right before Heil Honey, it was just lingering in my mind a couple of hours ago, and I was trying to remember its name. Seriously, this creeps me out, an image of a show made God knows when and which I haven't seen or thought about in years suddenly comes up in my mind, and a few moments afterwards the same show happens be in your footage by some freak accident...

    Well, I did a search and it seems it's called 'Dad's Army', a fairly well-known British sitcom about the Home Guard during the Second World War. Just FYI.

    But honest to God this vision of mine wasn't a fluke or a mind trick, that just happened. I guess such things happen, but man...

    Honestly, how many episodes could this show possibly have? The whole thing is WW2 and Hitler puns, and you can only have so many of those.

    OK, by a freak coincidence, I am scheduled to post a review of this exact same show on TV Trash this Monday. I had NO IDEA Brad was going to review the same show; in fact, the review has been completed since last Tuesday. I can't delay the posting because of time and how this review ties into the TV Trash storyline, but I just hope everyone knows this is pure coincidence.
  • Linkara
    avatar
    Don't worry about it. ^^ Coincidence like this happens all the time, like when the Game Heroes did a Let's Play of Plumbers Don't Wear Ties and then a few days later the AVGN posted up his review of it.

    With the sheer amount of reviewers out there, it's bound to occur.
  • FunkyM
    avatar
    Like when the Nostalgia Chick Ninja'd me over TRON with her Dark Nella Sag... oh I'm not going to become boring over it.

    Also, that end credits of the show that came before Heil Honey, that's classic British Sitcom Dad's Army. Hmm, Possible HoL material, methinks...

    Looking forward to what you have to say Rowdy as I enjoy TV Trash.

    This makes me want to make a Saturday morning cartoon, featuring Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Robert Mugabe, and Kim Jong-Il as adorable babies who use their imaginations to go on biiig advantures! I'll call it "Dictator Tots"!

    Well... it at least it wouldn't be in worse taste than this!

    Cool find, Brad. What a completely unreal concept for a sitcom.
  • GLKnight
    avatar
    More "Dic-Tots" brought to you by DiC, and you're in business.

    Also, I would have said "That's like saying Dahmer's a picky eater..."
  • Surfermario1  - Darn it Brad!
    I'm trying to get to sleep because I have work tomorrow and now I can't sleep because I don't want to wait until the moning to view this.

    Obviously influenced by "Hi Honey, I'm Home," but so was Pleasentville.

    Wow....glad this didn't make it to show.

    It looks like the writers were thinking of a Monty Python "frustrated Hitler" bit, but the producers were thinking of a Mel Brooks "refuge in audacity" bit, and the two bits ruined each other somehow.
  • Gurning Chimp

    I actually didn't find that offensive at all! Of course it was crap, but the actual content itself was no worse than the British sitcom ''Allo 'Allo', which was a series created by the same guys behind Dad's Army (the show that appeared on the bootleg at the beginning) and was about the French Resistance. That show was actually brilliant.
  • Shippou-Sensei
    avatar
    Allo Allo was great but i think it was a lot less problematic as it focused on the little people. no one in allo allo was really evil just incompetent and selfish.
  • malhex  - oh that naughty naughty hitler....
    avatar
    not sure why, but after watching this review, it reminded me about the buddy sitcom upn had planned to put together about abraham lincoln and his house slave...you wouldn't happen to have a copy of that laying around would you?
  • ToastMaster623  - What were they thinking?
    avatar
    I could only imagine what the producers of this show must have thought.

    Producer 1: Hey John, I got a great idea for a new sitcom!
    Producer 2: What's that Jim?
    Producer 1: Let's have a sitcom about one of the most terrible dictators of all time living in an average suburban environment!
    Producer 2: THAT'S BRILLIANT!!! I'm sure it'll really connect with the kids.
  • Char79

    I'm kind of reminded of the Springtime for Hitler play in The Producers, except that was actually funny.
  • Dierna

    Oddly this show reminds me a tad of I Love Lucy....
  • rowdycmoore

    Would you believe this didn't completely kill the career of the lead actor, Neil McCaul? In fact, he just had a role in the Gnomeo and Juliet movie.

    A slightly funnier Hitler parody which was part of Harry Enfields sketchshow:

    I'm gonna go stick pennies into wall sockets until I've erased all knowledge of this show's existence from my brain.
  • Flaregun
    avatar
    So this was a British show? Then why does Hitler & the entire cast (except for Chamberlain, 'natch) have Brooklynese American accents? OK, I can kinda see they were going for a send up of classic American style sitcoms; "Adolph" is at least 3/4 Ralph Kramden and Eva trying keep from blabbing a secret is straight out of I Love Lucy, but didn't the British have their own wacky sitcoms whose memory they could tarnish? I mean, this was a show about a German dictator made by British television, why do they have to drag *us* into it?
  • mrrubino
    avatar
    Hitler's accent sounded more Grouchonese to me.

    It's nothing short of amazing that this exists- that somehow, without exception, every single person involved, from the writers to the actors to the people that approved and aired it, never said "This is a bad idea. This is CAREER SUICIDE. I want nothing to do with this abominable train wreck." The unbroken chain of stupidity required to bring this into existence, let alone air it on television, is just staggering to comprehend.
  • Flaregun  - reply to Hanglyman
    avatar
    Hanglyman:
    I think it's very likely that many of the people involved, both in front of & behind the cameras, agreed to do the pilot as a quick paycheck with no long term commitment, assuming there was no way it would ever make it to air in the first place, let alone last more than one ep. (That's pretty much how most of the cast of Gilligan's Island got roped into that gig.)
  • The_Awesometeer
    avatar
    Now think of all the shows that ever get their pilot picked up to air on tv and then think about how this did.
  • DrNurgle
    avatar
    It seems insane now but I can see the idea seeming like a good one befdfore hand, the show would be bound to get attention.
    Following after Dads Army? one of the most loved and popular WW2 sitcoms, kinda makes sense but a really smack in the face to a much better show.

    As I recall there was a similar sitcom that used historical figures with a controversial tone. It involved a gay Abraham Lincoln and his black slave butler. It aired on UPN and for the life of me I can't remember what it was called.

    Anyway, this sitcom isn't offensive, it's just stupid, as you said.
  • malhex  - glad i'm not the only one who remembers it!
    avatar
    just looked it up, it was called the secret diary of desmond pfeiffer.
  • RocMegamanX
    I don't think I remembered that sitcom. And I'm glad I didn't...Lincoln was GAY in that sitcom?!

    No wonder it only lasted 9 episodes, if Wikipedia is to be believed.
  • Sebastian_Havelock
    avatar
    Also it wasn't just American sitcoms they were shitting on. Did anyone else think it was trying to be "Till death do us part"?

    For the Americans "Till death do us part's" leading character Alf Garnet was the main inspiration behind the character of Archie Bunker.

    Great stuff.

    Not the sitcom, the Idea of satirising Hitler.

    Recommended further viewing includes 2 of Jimmy Perry and David Croft's Sitcoms, Dad's Army and 'Allo 'Allo.

    (Am I the only one that wants to see Jillian Zurawski/Mrs Jones Dressed up as Michelle of ze Resistance?)
