Storyline

Colonel Von Strohm wants to hand René over to the Gestapo along with the painting of the fallen Madonna with the big boobies by Van Klomp to get rid of Herr Flick, but René convinces them that it would be a better idea to try to forge the painting, give that to the Gestapo and split the money from the painting after the war. Captain Hans finds out that putting cheese in one's ears improves the sound of madame Edith's singing. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

The Thrill Has Come
12 May 2020 | by monsieurfairfaxSee all my reviews

One other commentator stated perfectly that Cafe Rene finally opens its doors. I say it opened them with a bang. Although 'The Reclining Madonna with the Big Boobies' has changed into 'The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies' and Lieutenant Gruber is now less decorated (in the pilot episode, there were more medals on his uniform) all the great components are here. The running gags start to work their way into the viewer's heart, and the witty remarks are truly sharp. Besides perfectly timed comedy, the second episode adds some serious thrills and tension into the mix. Even some of the modern thrillers don't have this amount of edge of your seat suspense.
