BBC won’t remake classic World War II comedy ‘Allo ‘Allo ‘ fearing Nazis in the show will OFFEND viewers’

Allo AlloThe BBC has ruled out remaking the famous World War II sitcom ‘Allo ‘Allo because bosses were nervous the Nazis in the show would offend viewers.

It comes as the broadcaster gave the green light for other classic programmes to be remade, including comedy series Are You Being Served? and prison sitcom Porridge.

But the BBC were worried that some of the characters, such as Gestapo officer Herr Flick, would cause animosity, reports The Sun.

    That’s okay, remakes are always shite anyway.

    The BBC didn’t want to upset their viewers the same way they felt upset about Britain voting to leave the EU!

        Bruno Ganz – the Rolls-Royce of actors.

    Are You Being Served? One of the best, wife and I would just about piss ourselves watching that show. The Brits did a lot of damn good comedies. However they would NOT fly today, not politically correct,what.

    As if Nazis are a problem in Europe these days. That’s OK Beeb, go back to sleep.

    A mawkish write up –
    with a fresh title – something like “My Stalin, My Love”
    would get all the left wing creative juices flowing.

    Knowing the BBC they’re planning a comedy about paki rape gangs.

    “Hey Mohammad, you up for a spot o’ twat what”? -cue laugh track-

    Sad part is most Brits would find it funny.

    I’m thinking there should be a comedy show called “Jihad…Jihad”….About a muslim bartender and his wife. It would include the local bomb maker, the vest wearing suicide bomber who can’t decide when he should go to work, the local burkha wearing sex pot and other various characters. I’m working on the script. I’m sure nobody would complain about such a show…..

    I find the French more offensive than the Nazis.

    Don’t mention the war!

    Are they paying people to come up with new TV shows and the best they can do is remake old ones? They need to hire new people.

    Here’s a better idea for a remake: Replace the Nazis with Islamic State thugs.
