Can not keep up to its promise
29 November 2019 | by bernhardbubblegumSee all my reviews

[Edit: watched until the end. Tried to sum up.] In ordner to make this review without spoilers, this is the only thing i can say. I watched all three episodes and i am not amused. This series thinks, every single human in its audience is so dumb, that it comes up with a total sensless plot. In fact i beleave the plot was written by 14 year old teenagers who naively are building up a crime thriller psycho plot without the key components of these genres.

The series is over explanatory. It does not leave room for interpretation or time and space for thinking about it. 50% of the dialouge consist of names shouted at each other for rembering the dumb audience who is who. Besides that the characters are constantly repeating themselves like a cliche bomb. Its like a story in the head of the already mentioned teenagers - only with more strong language to give it a pseudo contemporary and adult flavor.

Why? The title and the thumbnails, even the short description were promising. The series can not catch up what the marketing promised. It feels like an afternoon tv show for senior audience in german television.
