Underestimated, underestimated, underestimated!!!

7/10
Author: THE_FREDeric from Germany
18 December 2006

Underestimated comedy from Germany.

Not as bad one would expect from a German TV-production.

You will see it, if Steve Buscemi would play the part of the underdog Dittsche, who enters a Snack-Joint to philosophy in his simple, unique way of compromising, during drinking an old fashionable German beer. Discussing about the newest news, not minding if it is an important issue or the latest gossip. The not always interested clerk of the little snack stand, should be played by Harvey Keitel, like he did in "Smoke" and the story settled in the "BIG APPLE" New York. These two incredible actors, in a weekly broad casted show talking' about the newest news displaying the (usually, pretty dumb) actions of George W., the game of the Knicks or the Yankees, the famous (like Paris, Britney, or anyone who thinks they're more important than the rest of us) or all the sh*t, which happens every day. This idea is simple but extraordinary and would improve TV-channel.

Like every TV-show it has his good and his bad episodes, but in the end it is a good, but also improvable piece of TV.

Dittsche - real studies of life

Author: mreasy from Karlsruhe, Germany
23 January 2006

You know that kind of guys - they can explain you everything, from why the local soccer club lost its last match (of course it's because of the United Nations), to the impact of the internet on waldsterben. Oddly enough nevertheless this huge knowledge about the things in the world and their connections Dittsche does not find a job and wears his bathrobe all day long - especially on the daily trip to the little rat-shop where he orders 3-4 beers and shares his knowledge with the clerk.

Clerk is the catchword: Think of Dittsche as the roofer-guy that plays in "Clerks" and explains why the roofers working on the death star in "Star Wars" know the risk of being destroyed together with the death star when they signed their contract.
