    • Dark

      CREATOR: Baran bo Odar & Jantje Friese
      CAST: Oliver Masucci, Maja Schöne & Jördis Triebel
      Probably the best thing to come from German television since Generation War. This original Netflix time travel show is about a quiet German town where kids are disappearing. But this has happened before - it is as if the past, 33 years ago, is repeating itself. The show is often compared to Stranger things, but then darker. We believe this is a bit of a marketing trick, but fans of Stranger things will surely also enjoy this.

    • Babylon Berlin

      CREATOR: Tom Tykwer
      CAST: Volker Bruch, Liv Lisa Fries & Peter Kurth
      A historical crime drama bout Berlin during the social and political changes of the Golden Twenties, and a new police commissioner that just moved there from Cologne. It's a creation by Tom Tykwer (Sci-fi movie Cloud Atlas) which means that we are rather excited to see yet another film director go television, even in Europe now. The second season is already scheduled, so it seems a rather serious project (and a $40 million budget).

    Germany has a very rich cinema culture, which should mean that good German series aren’t hard to find. Good shows have been made indeed, yet somehow the Germans keep their series mostly to themselves. Here’s what’s interesting.
