Deutschland 83 new series = Deutschland 86

Postby Samoan » 08 Mar 2019, 10:15

There's a new series starting tonight (Friday 8 March) on More 4 (Channel 14) continuing on from the acclaimed Deutschland 83 and now called Deutschland 86.

I was a big admirer of the original. It looks to be intriguing. Martin has been banished to Angola having fallen out of the Stasi's good graces.

Deutschland 86
9pm, More4
As the sequel to Deutschland 83 opens, East Germany is on its knees, abandoned by Moscow and desperate for hard currency. Cue an alliance between the HVA foreign intelligence service and the commercial coordination unit (KoKo) that reunites agent Martin Rauch with his shady Aunt Lenora.

Well I didn't expect that. Young Angolan orphans who can speak fluent German.

Wunderbares Fernsehen. Still viewable on Channel 4's catch-up 4oD

I watched it. It was okay, not great. I'll watch the second one and see if its worth persevering with.

Likewise. A “previously on Deutschland 83” would have been helpful as it’s a while since we saw it. I recognised some of the cast, but could have done with a bit of a refresher.
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

Full series of 86 available to stream if you're too impatient to watch it one episode weekly.
We're usually skipping around the function room in our long-johns by now...
