It's cult, just cult! Manfred Krug, a well known actor from the eastern part in Germany, personalized this show who lasted for almost 20 years (1978-1996) and contained total 86 episodes of 45', made in 7 seasons, with his superb, herb and very original character as a international truck driver. An absolute must-seen for all Krug-fans (Liebling Kreuzberg, Tatort Inspector Stoever etc.) and for all of those, who'd like to share the exploration of less unknown parts of (east-)europe and even more important, who: ...likes special characters-drawn ...develop sympathy for the charming construction of German TV-series from the late seventies and the eighties Now, the very first season is available on DVD - if you don't know "auf achse" and you're able to understand German: give it a try, it's worth it! For all the others: You know what I'm talking about ;-) 8/10
