Storyline

In this Dutch police detective series, Detective Jurriaan 'Jurre' de Cock is sort of the 'Columbo' of a Dutch police city's police department, as deceptively poor in appearance (cheap raincoat) but always able to outsmart the crooks, usually a murderer per episode. He does however have a competent team, especially his young, promising right-hand Detective Dick Vledder and the more modest, often separately standard-researching Detective Albert 'Appie' Keizer, while Chief Corneel Buitendam is not too helpful; another regular is forensic examiner Dr. Ennaeus den Koninghe. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

In the Netherlands, the series (both reruns and new episodes) is always aired by RTL4 on Friday evenings, not counting airings on Belgian channels which are also received in the Netherlands. However, when live soccer matches threatened the viewing figures for some Baantjer reruns (which are known to usually score about as high as new episode, which is relatively unique), the series was temporarily moved to Tuesday evenings. Also, since late 2005, channel RTL7 also airs reruns of episodes on Saturday evenings (these are reruns of the episodes aired the Friday before; RTL7 is known for rerunning RTL4's programs the day after).

Crazy Credits

Since the 10th season the closing credits start playing over the final scene; the screen shrinks so the title bar showing the credits can become visible. See more »

Great show!
17 January 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Baantjer is a great show! (not crap at all) Every Friday night, here in the Netherlands, I watch it with my family and it's a very exciting show. The person who wrote the other review has probably never seen Baantjer because if he had, he wouldn't have called it crap! Also, it's not true that the only reason for watching Baantjer is because famous stars appear on screen every time because they never have famous people on Baantjer! Baantjer is just a great, funny and exciting Dutch show, that would never make it in the USA because it has too much Dutch culture. But that's not a reason for people to comment negatively on it! And If you ever go to the Netherlands, check it out! (You'll definitely fall in love with it!
