Storyline

TV Series circling around young people, friends and families in Cologne and Düsseldorf, Germany. The series' trademark is that it tells both about life in rich (such as dukes and duchesseses) as well as "normal" families and people. Other and maybe most important trademark is that there always is one or many case/s of forbidden love ("Verbotene Liebe"), such as homosexuality or adultery. Written by Smoothhoney1265

Christian & Oliver
27 September 2014 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

Years ago I came to this story thanks to youtube (and I think several of us arrived in the same way), because of the technology today we can see fiction from various countries. I remember it was not my intention to start watching it, just happened one day when I was sailing on the internet. I started watching the clip 1 subtitled in Spanish, then 2, then 3, then 4 and then I got addicted, I saw all the videos I could for that night, as more chapters passed more interesting the show was done, I could not stop watching the series because the story was SPECTACULAR.

Christian and Oliver were the perfect couple, I never saw in a movie or television such a nice couple like this, the actors did an excellent job, they were completely surrendered to his characters, I do not regret having seen almost 500 clips that are on youtube, I stand up and applaud the Germans for creating such good stories like this (because I know it is not the only one of this style).

My vote is obviously a 10 for Christian and Oliver, for all those sleepless nights, for hours of fun, for that passion on screen, for making us part of the story and because THEY ARE THE BEST GAY COUPLE ON FICTION OF ALL TIME.
