Hey, Deutschlandfunk!

I used to spend a lot of time listening to this radio station when it was called Deutschlandradio Kultur. But in any case, definitely a positive review.

If the first episode is still heavily laden with clichés and one asks oneself whether a simple American view of the world is being served here — evil whistleblower against decent US spies — the series gains complexity and tension. […] If Berlin Station distinguishes itself pleasantly from Homeland, the other US spy series that only filmed Berlin in its fifth season in stereotypical decal photos, it’s because this time many Europeans and Germans collaborated and probably also had more to say. […] Berlin Station may not reinvent the genre of the spy film, and seems rather classic and somewhat staid, however, it definitely displays Orwellian dimensions.

  1. Das hört man doch gerne…..

  2. Das ist aber eine wirklich positive Beurteilung. Ich würde sehr gerne mehr als nur die beiden ersten Teile sehen, die im letzten Sommer mal kurz öffentlich zugänglich waren.

  3. Nice one, although I think he should have done it without the spoilers!
