Meanwhile, as Edith prepares for her wedding, René & Co. must get the aerial for their new radio above the jamming signal of Herr Flick, so they disguise Mimi as a small nun to obtain a box kite which they fly to contact London and request plastic explosive to blow up the safe in the General's château to get the British invasion plans.

This was _make-you-laugh_ funny. Spoof the French WW2 generation that preceded the great Pink Panthers with Peter Sellers.

The Nazis are always great laughing material which they absolutely deserve after all the sick stuff they did in WW2. Especially Richard Gibson do a good sadistic Gestapo officer and it is always fun to see how he forces his Nazi secretary to undress herself. Sadly the show drown in it's repetitive gags that they recycle for each episode. I can not understand how people can't lost interest after the first seasons as there was several actors that were replaced with inferior actors in the last seasons including the mentioned Gibson. In small doses it has a laugh every now and then.
