Babylon Berlin


Recommended Posts

I'm very much a fan, though that's no surprise given my affinity for all things Tykwer. Seasons 1-3 available from Kino Lorber. 

My review



Ironically, the work she gets is tagging photos in the “murder squad,” so that detectives can look for commonalities between crimes. In the pilot’s best scene, Ritter and Rath bump into each other (the most cliché of all meet cutes), each spilling crime photos on the floor. As they sift through the pile, neatly separating murder from sex, violence from vice, neither flinches in embarrassment, though one comment towards the end signals a belated concession that something about the encounter isn’t normal.

Sounds like Ross Douthat shares your enthusiasm for the show, Ken.  Haven't seen it yet, but will prioritize it.  Apparently the three seasons are now on Netflix.
