Its a great action series , if u don't mind watching with subtitles !
24 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

I actually found this TV series quite awesome when it used to run . It's actually a really awesome action TV series that would be up there with The UNIT or 24 if it wasn't in German .

Anyway basically the main character is an ex-special forces type who faked hes own death and now he is a vigilante going after the larger organized crime groups , this isn't like the A-team where the enemy never gets hit with bullets. In The Clown HE actually does shoot the enemies and often stabs , so plenty of action and explosions in the series .

BTW , hes best friend crashes a helicopter in almost every episode ( wonder how much that costs ) :D

It is definitely worth a shot if u don't mind the German language or subtitles .
