Every now and then I bring you guys something a bit…odd, just to make sure I’m not the only one seeing it. Although if you’re from Australia I’m sure you have seen this (though with various international rights issues I don’t know if you’ll see this in Australia). Danger 5 is a rather…interesting bit of “well, that happened”. The 2014 comedy series look at a World War II series if it were a typical 60s crimefighting show, just with Hitler as the constantly escaping villain. In season 2 the series jumped time to the 1980s as Hitler somehow survived and cooked up more crazy schemes, drawing the team back together.

The show focuses on the five member team: Jackson from the USA, Tucker from Australia, Ilsa from Russia, Claire from Britain and Pierre from Europe. (I just copy/pasted that from the fan wiki for time.) Sent by their boss, the eagle-headed Colonel Chestbridge to uncover the latest wacky scheme the Nazis are up to and put a stop to it. Oh yeah…and kill Hitler. In this first episode Adolf’s flunky decides to play Carmen Sandiego and steal some monuments for Hitler’s birthday party. What follows is really weird. Yes, the eagle-headed colonel is the least weird thing here. Enjoy the madness of…”I Danced For Hitler”!

If you want to see more of this Shout Factory TV has both seasons available to watch.
