Any other takers?
Best thing on Sky Atlantic for a while.
Based on quite a few truths.

I'll probably binge watch it - I liked the first episode.

I'm surprised nobody else has taken any interest.

There's some good bits and some unbelievable stuff although their Facebook page keeps updating with historical facts on what the plot events are supposed to be based on.

Watched both seasons and found it excellent. Visually, it was sumptuous, the acting elegant, and we even had a Bryan Ferry cameo croon. Liked the way various Roxy and Ferry tracks were re arranged and incorporated into the soundtrack

I binge watched it over the weekend and was blown away by it. The depiction of inter war Berlin seemed authentic, as did the juxtaposition of the grinding poverty with the desperate decadence.

The intertwined storylines were gripping; so much tension. Expertly paced. And the two leads were mesmerising- especially Charlotte. Acting was brilliant overall.

I read they’ve commissioned a third series: they can’t make it quickly enough for me!
