Storyline

This popular fiction series follows the police officers in a precinct of Ghent (Flanders, Belgium), both professionally and in their private lives. Main characters include detectives like John Nauwelaerts and Raymond Jacobs, the gay Wilfried Pasmans who shakes his sissy image by moving from office - to field work, motorized cops such as Nick Debbaut and the ethnic Turks Selattin and Mihriban Ates. Other recurring characters include some of their relatives or partners, especially when those side-stories interact with their police work, as well as forensic and public prosecution officials.

Going downhill...
20 November 2001 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

When "Flikken" first started in 1999, it was a very good show. But the second series were a lot worse, suddenly al the story lines were very unbelievable. But in the third series, it's getting better again! They introduced some new characters, and it's fun to watch again. But it's still not very realistic anymore. Next year, the fourth season will be shown, but it won't be the same again, with three major characters who are leaving (Axel Daeseleire, Cahit Ölmez and the always gorgeous Joke Devynck). On the other hand, the also always gorgeous Ann Ceurvels will be introduced, but still, they should stop the show now, while it's still popular, instead of keeping on going downhill.
