German tv classic
11 April 2003 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Well I was quite young when "Der Kommissar" (as far as I know the correct translation would be: the chief inspector) was on German tv from 1969 until 1976 but I remember it well. Even though I live in Portugal for 17 years now, I sometimes have the chance to see the reruns on German cable tv. I enjoy each episode.

One thing that makes this tv series immediately stand out is its theater approach. Many a murderer is played by an excellent actor with classical stage experience. Often actors using the "method acting" approach are present to provide counter balance. Usually the whole cast is excellent.

The team of four: Erik Ode in the title role, Reinhard Glemnitz, Guenther Schramm and Fritz Wepper (later in 1974 his brother Elmar took over) have an honest approach which is sadly missed from more recent German crime-solving tv series with the possible exception of "Der Alte"(roughly translated: the old police lieutenant) with the excellent Rolf Schimpf in the title role. Erik Ode adds a "world weariness" yet a sharp wit that stems from an old school which is sadly missed.

I don't know if any English version of "Der Kommissar" exists (dubbed or with subtitles) but it is definitely worth checking out.

Herbert Jarczyk's title music might sound a bit "outdated" (to put it mildly) but please don't let yourself get distracted by it.

Der Kommissar: definitely quality classic German tv.
