    A German-language spy thriller cut from the same cloth as The Americans.

    It’s certainly entertaining and well-done but, based on the first two chapters, the viewers are going to have to swallow quite a large helping of implausible sauerkraut to attain their suspension of disbelief.

At first, as someone from the West,it's tough getting our bearings on the East/West German thing, and keeping alliances straight. But in a way, it's a nice companion piece to The Americans, in that the main characters are not your traditionally sympathetic protagonists. You're "rooting" for people who are the traditional enemies. But it makes things fun and fresh. Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I thought that Deutschland 83 was well made and kept me engaged. I found the acting to be top notch and the story totally believable. I was in Germany in 1983 and was in the US Army, some of the events in this story, I was present for and remember well. It was nostalgic, accurate and worth the watch. I give this mini-series ten stars, a knife and a fork and two thumbs up.

    I hope that they will view the success of Deutschland 83 as an indicator that the United States is a market for German shows. Oh, the Generals Daughter and Martin's Fiance, are SMOKING HOT! I could look at more of them being hot.
