We are out of country, living outside of the comforts of language, and were trying to find great series to re-watch on Surf the Channel. Die Kinder came up in conversation as one of the very GREATS, right up there with The Wire, the best of Prime Suspect, A Very British Coup, etc. Why is this series not available? We would nearly kill ourselves to get to the opening scene, to make sure that we were tuned in on time. The quality of this series--from the inventive narrative-expanding, plot-thickening opening credits, to the writing and acting, to its very end--was consistently thrilling. Back in 1990 we were telling everyone to watch and felt like it was a private treasure trove; twenty years later, I am still perplexed about its apparent un-availability and the small audience of fans for the series. Its relevance continues: terrorism--both renegade and state-sponsored, political fanaticism across the ideological spectrum, political resistance and refusal, it all matters. The recent Baader-Meinhoff film was good and gripping; this series is formidable, smart and superlative.
