An exceptional multi-part crossover! I liked the Easter eggs with Major Hochstetter and Colonel Teppel as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed this, such an inventive collection of scenes as the man just kept turning up. Very well done:-)

This series was excellent. You did an amazing job fitting it all together, with a storyline that was consistent and made sense. Until I read this I had not realized how many episodes this particular actor was in-each time as an entirely different character. This was a very enjoyable read.

This series of stories was great. I have been re watching all the episodes on DVD and its funny seeing how many actors come back as different characters. I really love how you explain 'Wagner' coming back as someone new each time. Really well done and I enjoyed it immensely even though it didn't feature Carter (my favourite) haha! Two thumbs up from me :)

I had to reread this story again. I love your story-telling abilities. Wagner became a favorite of mine after reading this.

I really should read more of your stories, Moffitt. They're always good, and this one is no exception. I love it! I have prosopagnosia myself, so I don't generally notice things like the same actor turning up in innumerable roles (I was so proud of myself for spotting Howard Caine in a Rat Patrol episode!) but I really loved the explanation. I think this is one of the things fanfic does so well: connecting the dots that canon left adrift, and giving us a reason for what we've seen.
Since I just left a rather harsh review for a badly-written story of dubious merit, one of the things I want to point out here is that, aside from the fact that this, and others by the same author, are just GOOD stories, interesting, thought-provoking, and enjoyable to read, their lack of errors avoids jarring the reader out of the story. They're perfect examples of the difference between "good enough" and excellent. They don't exhibit the text equivalent of scratches on a record, as so many others do. They'd be good for readability alone; the fact that they're such wonderful stories takes them all the way to great.
Keep up the good writing!

How is it possible that I am just now finishing this story? Somehow I have overlooked it and discovered it through the process of reading all the PBA nominated stories.
(I'm starting to get very nervous about getting them all finished and my votes turned in on time! But that's another issue...)
Anyway, I absolutely loved this, as I love all your stories. And, I love it for all the same reasons: your attention to detail, your vivid characters, your deft weaving of canon and imaginative plotting...It's all just amazing.
But, what I think I might love most of all is your wonderful way of finding the GOOD in people. The fleshing out of that dirty snitch Wagner into another of Hogan's Heroes is so unlikely, yet you do it in a graceful, completely believable way.

"I think I'm going to miss him..." Oh Carter, that's so sweet... ;-)
Thanks for explaining everything, even though Mr. Wagner himself didn't appreciate it very much!

Now this really took some complicated and ingenious detours - but you pulled it off beautifully!
| konarciq chapter 5 . 10/21/2011
Loved the explanation of the serial number!
| konarciq chapter 4 . 10/21/2011
It took me quite a while to figure out who was the narrator here, but boy, did it bring the story alive to have it told from this point of view!
Well done! Extremely well done, I may say!
| konarciq chapter 3 . 10/21/2011
Isn't that the name of some famous composer?
LOL at the repeated "whatever that was" comment whenever he came across something "technical"...
| konarciq chapter 1 . 10/21/2011
I suddenly realized I never finished reading this story... Starting all over again to properly get into the spirit!

Now I'll have to put this one in the DVR player. This was fantastic. I loved seeing Hogan's thoughts during this caper. The end of an era, and the end of a terrific story. I always love your style of writing and your original take on our boys at Stalag 13.
| Canadian Hogan's Fan chapter 7 . 8/22/2011
Awesome! You did a bang up job of taking the perspective of the big man in camp himself. There were so many funny lines in this. I particularly liked: "And he's smiling, for Pete's sake. Have you ever seen a soldier smile for the camera?"
"Ah, hell, I'll admit it. I was just itching for an excuse to play the tough guy. I had a trench coat and everything."
"Too bad the trench coat wasn't black; it didn't really go with the image I was going for, but what could I do? There was a war on, you know."
And, of course, "I took a deep breath, and allowed my inner James Cagney to surface." After all, what guy from that era doesn't have an inner Cagney?
I also enjoyed Newkirk's guilty look and Hogan's fear of being kissed. I know how Hogan feels; something like that happened with me once too.
You've done a wonderful job on this series. Thanks for the great reading!
