This Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition is a hard one for me, considering how I dodged the bullet last time. But have no fear, I always find a way! Here are three recommendations that I have watched, enjoyed and all happen to be in German!
1. ALARM FOR COBRA 11 – THE HIGHWAY POLICE (1996-…)
Had no idea this show is still going and Semir (Erdoğan Atalay) is still part of the highway police! Though I have definitely not seen all 43 seasons, I did see multiple seasons during the early 2000’s. It’s fun, funny, but sometimes serious.
2. REX: A COP’S BEST FRIEND (1994-2008)
Another police series, this one from Austria which features a German Shepard named Rex as the lead. I didn’t see this one as much as Cobra 11 but it was definitely among our family’s evening entertainments.
3. DARK (2017-…)
My last pick is the best of the bunch! An original German Netflix show with time travel. It will mess with your head, it will give you the feels and you will wait impatiently for it to return for season 2. The acting is pretty good but the twists are what make the show excellent!
THIS SERIES IS CREATED BY WANDERING THROUGH THE SHELVES3
I picked Alarm for Cobra 11 last year. I love watching that show and I love that Semir is still there. My family and I used to watch Rex all the time. Unfortunately, the original Austrian series is no longer on TV here. Now we have a new/awful Italian version.
That sounds awful (the Italian version), but still, it’s nice shows like this still exist!
I love Dark. I have a feeling we probably won’t get a season 2 this year. Perhaps early next year? Can’t wait.
