I watched it all, so that says something. Howev, it got to be a bit of a hate-watch-wondering how much more I could dislike any (yes, any) given character. I finally decided, the adulterous non-German philandering new priest replaced another guy who was surely fired because he kept marrying people who blatantly hated each other. My God, the only heat comes from the priest and the chick married to the gay dude carrying on with the 30 year old high school student. Oi. And, spoiler plate, incest isn't scary, it's just depressing.
Hey “terpenstein” even if a movie is not your cup of tea you don’t need to spoil the plot for everyone else who may want to watch the show by giving away the twist in your actual review, not cool a hole! I don’t understand why people think that simply writing “spoiler alert” excuses them from the really atrocious behaviour of completely wrecking other people’s potential fun ! Grow up dude !!!
1 hour of a middling show stretched into 6 hours of absolute nonsense. Nothing that happens amounts to anything, as just about every single minute in the show is a red herring that has little to do with the show's reality. Spoiler alert: the amnesiac guy isn't real, he's a fictional character that the kid creates as a way of resurfacing his repressed memories, as is just about every scene and character interaction that we're shown. However interesting some of the trickle-fed mysteries may be, they can't amount to anything because things beyond what our intrepid snoopy kid may have witnessed (these two are having a secret gay love affair, the weird lady in the salon is weird, so-and-so is a fucking freak) arr straight fiction. The remaining hour of TV is a generic incest-based murder mystery. Sux.
Really enjoyed the series! Bad translations might take a toll on characters and story! In German it’s great (sorry just getting to grips with the instant review)
