This Dallas-type series is about two competing Dutch families, Noordermeer and De Graaf, running ancestral firms in the Rotterdam shipbuilding business, each with numerous internal tensions, especially between the generations, as some are business-prone, others adverse, some ruthless, some soft or moralistic, but also with their staff, often meeting each-other in both ruthless commercial rivalry and personal relationships, again also with staff and third parties (clients, competitors, suppliers...), producing an intricate web of sub-plots, some sex, some crime etcetera.Written by
Okay...so maybe soap-opera is bit of an insult, because this show offered more than just your regular soap-opera story lines. It's been a while since I've seen it and the final season was ridiculous, but I remember really enjoying the second season. I loved the little Romeo and Juliet-thing that was going on between Sam and Anton (Daan Schuurmans was terrific as Anton!), because it was all very sweet. The whole concept of the show is pretty original. Sometimes things did get a big ridiculous though. Especially in the final season when there were face transplants and stuff. I stopped watching then, but I remember several things about the second season that really makes me want to watch the show again. Like the storyline about Tessa and Nancy and Nancy turning into a psycho with an axe...That was all fun. The show wasn't perfect, but I really enjoyed watching it.
