Just found this one: Line of duty.
Absolutely awesome British police tv-series. Finished seasons 1 and 2. This is how you make tv.

 

I loved it too. A few plot holes along the way, but brilliant nonetheless.

Somehow from descriptions I should like Rick & Morty, but it has not clicked for me. *shrug*

I tried watching this series but stopped when it just seemed to be torture porn. If not regular porn...

Nice palate cleanser after finishing Das Boot season 1.

How was Das Boot anyway? I heard it sucks more than just a bit, but still did not get enough time to watch it.

Just started S1 Ep 1 of DB yesterday. Too soon to make a judgement, but it looks encouraging so far. At least it will allow me to work on my German, without getting distracted by Trixxi's boobs.

Some brilliant plot points, got way too complicated with the conspiracy inside a conspiracy Russian nesting dolls BS.

 

However, anything with Thandie Newton is worth watching. And the mind-bleep that the Bernard character goes through is well-done. Jeffrey Wright is an actor to keep an eye on.

If you are looking for a realistic depiction of the uboat war it's not for you.  The plot is kind of stupid, and half of each episode is devoted to some really stupid resistance types and the only moderately smarter Germans trying to catch them.  The uboat scenes are decent and they do a good job of showing the claustrophobic living conditions and general overall misery of serving on a uboat I think.  Overall I found it more or less watchable if only to see how absurd the plot could get and how the writers were going to resolve it.

Re BBC Police Drama's, I thought 'The Informer' was very good. Probably the best show ive seen Paddy Considine in. Oh, and unlike Line of Duty, Jessica Raine does not get thrown out the window. Which is nice. :)

So the 'political reality' of German WW2 fiction continues to hold sway. Then I guess we won't be seeing Otto Carius  biopic anytime soon. I had heard there was a Das Boot mini--tiny flutter of hope they'd maybe do another German WW2 unit history without it being totally ridiculous, some day.

Don't get me wrong, I like German War Movies (Usually) but the 'political constraints' render the characters so lifeless, guiltridden and depressed, you wonder how Germany took over anything.

I imagine---and Imagine if some of the 'soldados' were fiercely patriotic and willing to die for The Fatherland or even be staunch supporters of 'Dolph, Baby' & his 'party'?

I'm hopeful but have some concern.

 

The show will be taken straight from the books.  For most of us our only exposure to the Witcher is from the games and from what I've been reading they're very different.  Some comments I read yesterday stated that the books are all about politics and drama with monster hunting a rare thing.

 

Even if they turn the above into a great show (hell, politics and interpersonal drama is basically GoT in its best seasons) Netflix has a bad history of making an expensive, amazing show... and then cancelling it because even the success it may have doesn't justify the costs.

 

I'll likely sign up for Netflix for a month to watch it nonetheless.

I played the games and have read most of the novles long before that. There is more interpersonal drama, also description of the life of the people. And unlike the games Geralt does nopt stumble over monsters at every turn. In the books it is a rather special that a witcher finds monsters and is often called specifically by a village to kill that one monster troubling them. And often enough the humans are the real monsters. there are also more interactions with all the displaced fairy tale creatures than in the games.

Amazon has announced casting for first characters for their Wheel of Time project, starts shooting this autumn. Still my favorite series, even though books 9-11 or so sucked, I have a combination of high hopes and trepidation about what is going to come about.
