Possible humour outbreak in Deutschland

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I thought I would put this in CA as there may be many benefits...

    BBC Linky

    I do so hope that the dubbing includes comedy accents.

    A sign that Germany is coming out of its post WW2 "Don't mention the war" attitude. Hopefully.
  2. And they dont even have a word for "fluffy"
  3. I still can't see them 'getting it'!

    They found Benny Hill funny 20 years after it was sacked in UK - these are strange people.....
  5. Wonder if "Hogan's Heroes" ever played over there?
  6. You are talking about an group of people who admire hasselhoff, the word "retro" sums them up quite well
  7. Benny Hill made me what I am today...

    A stocking perv with a fetish for women in uniform, so he wasnt all bad.
  8. Strange people?
    Who made the show in the first place?

    Yep. It is still being shown as well.

    The boxheads have their very own sense of humour and a lot of what they find funny is just cringe making but the younger generation are starting to get the idea. Slowly... very slowly in some cases.
  9. Retro does indeed do the job. As it seems that their fashion sense is just hitting 1982 now, perhaps the comedy that began that year will be a hit. I think they should dub The Young Ones for the Deutsche aswell, another brilliant example of comedy from 1982 that will sit quite nicely not only with the fashion, but also the music tastes!
  10. Do the Germans watch warfilms? Can anyone ever remember one being played on German TV whilst they were channel hopping for porn?
  11. A german warfilm basically is a porno

    In addition to the German voice overs with crappy UK/US accents, they tried using computer graphics to switch both sides uniforms - but the apologists preferred watching Jerries getting killed/losing, so they binned the idea .......
  13. Moved to the fatherland on 5th june 2005 and they showed the longest day that night. I thought it was jolly nice of them to put a film on that i would enjoy although something was wrong with the sound, they seemed to only be using the latter half of the alphabet and dropping out most of the vowels.
    as for 'Allo 'Allo i'm almost certain that they won't get it but at least this year orange isn't the most trendy of colours!!!!
  14. 'Allo 'Allo was being shown on German TV as long ago as 2001. During a RIP in Macedonia we handed over to the German army and we nicknamed one of the blokes Renee due to his similarity. He understood straight away, commenting how much he liked the programme and he watched it whenever it was shown.
  15. I so want to hear how they dub Herr Flick. Will they even need to?
