    Yo I know it can be hard to commit to a season of subtitles but this is a phenomenal show.

    It's a cop/spy drama set in the waning days of Weimar, packed with political intrigue, loaded with outstanding performances, and it's downright beautiful to look at - the art direction, set design and editing are all ridiculously on point. Supposedly this is the biggest budget TV series not in English ever... trust me it shows.

    Oooohhh gonna add it to the list.

    I prefer watching anything foreign with subtitles. Dubbing is awful regardless of how good. Thanks for the rec!

    Started it last night. Love it so far. Love this time in history. I recently went on a deep delve on Wikipedia on the Trotsky/Stalin relationship. Fascinating.

    Gonna check it out. Been looking for something new. Started Jan De Lechte but stopped after a few episodes when I heard it had one season.

    Don’t stop. It’s really good and there are rumors of a second season, just with a different story.

    JDL? Some idiot told me the ending too. He said it’s been a few years so he figured people would know.

    On the second episode of Babylon, so far so good. But not earth shattering.

    Watched the first season. Enjoyed it but wasn’t blown away by it. Starting season two.
