June 6, 1944. 700 warships, 23,400 airborne units, 156,000 men, and 4 goofballs oops! I meant … 4 totally incompetent soldiers parachuted into occupied France. Clumsy, a little loose, endearing, they form the most special unit of the entire US Army. 4 morons who, unintentionally, will change the course of history. They form the Lazy Company.
Here is cool series as I call it GI joke. Of course it is a fictional series during world war II. During their missions, the four goofballs will have the opportunity to meet many historical figures such as Churchill, Hitler, Charles de Gaulle, Mussolini, Pétain or Einstein. Oh boy you don’t say. This is like Hogan’s heroes a la band of brothers but a comedy. They tried to capture the era as authentic as possible like every series first they develop the characters on the first season you get to know them and what there are about. You have Caroline Vigneaux wife mistress sadistic Nazi and Quentin Baillot who portrays an hilarious hitler. You see they are soldier who are waiting until the war is over so they don’t get kill. There is this one episode were one of the soldier of the resistance has a resemble to hitler you know where that is going. The writers are taking risk nothing is sacred nothing it is all out there. If you like hogan’s heroes you will like this one. It is a bit outrageous at time but it is funny and well done. they signed on for 2 more seasons and that is so cool.
