I was watching a rerun on METV (well of course it was a rerun, that’s all METV airs! :smack: ) of Hogan’s Heroes and I don’t know why I thought this, but every episode of Hogan’s Heroes, a sit-com made in America, takes place outside of America. There’s not one second of any of the 168 episodes that took place in the USA. There was an episode or two that had a scene in London, but the rest took place in Germany.
I wondered, how unique was this? Were there any other American Sit-coms (not dramas, just sit-coms) that did the same? The only shows that came to mind were
MAS*H - All 256 episodes took place in Korea
McHale’s Navy - All 138 episodes took place in the South Pacific or Italy
Roll Out - (I’m guessing that this short lived WW2 show only took place in Europe)
Can anyone think of any others? I know this is an obscure subject, but it got me wondering just how rare a TV comedy that’s made in a country never has an episode take place in that country.
