** The series aired in both Germany and France. The German audiences loved it, with some older people saying that it was a relief to be able to laugh a little at a painful period of their history. It was the French who accused it of being insensitive!

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Although the series was extremely popular in Britain and overseas, it was especially so in UsefulNotes/{{Portugal}}. According to [[https://www.publico.pt/culturaipsilon/noticia/a-madonna-caida-das-grandes-maminhas-1742530 this article]], it was because the series was seen as a parody of war movies which put every one, villains and heroes, the good and the bad, as equally incompetent (and not specifically of ''Series/SecretArmy''), at the same time as using a review-style kind of humour (review being at the time a type of theater which was very popular in Portugal, albeit slowly going out of style with other TV series which were contemporaneous with ''Allo Allo'' on Portuguese telly). In fact, when Gorden Kaye had his car accident, it was cover news in Portugal, and a BBC spokesperson was reportedly surprised at the ammount of Portuguese journalists calling in to inquire on Kaye's health!

* DeaderThanDisco: Averted. While modern comedians frequently trash-talk the series (in particular, Creator/RickyGervais has gone on record as saying that this series showcases everything wrong with the classic BritCom format), it still remains very fondly remembered by most people.



* {{Woolseyism}}: In Sweden, the show was called '''Emliga Armén'' ("Lame Army"), a pun/French-accented pronunciation of ''Hemliga Armén'' (the Swedish translation of ''Series/SecretArmy'').
