Trivia

The introduction of the character Horst Schimanski (Götz George) marked a strong change regarding the depiction of cops in German television. He became notorious for his rebellious attitude, his frequent drinking, foul language and occasional brawls. As those traits were unprecedented in the 1980's, it gained the character a cult-status. Schimanski is also credited for making the word "shit" more socially acceptable, and in 1991, the German newspaper Bild even counted the number of times he used it. In many polls, Schimanski topped the list of the most popular Tatort characters. See more »

As good if not better than most US crime shows
25 November 2018 | by michael_wehoSee all my reviews

Working my way through the Cologne series after watching the Kiel series on MHz. I especially like these series due to the pacing and stories. Moreover, I get a tour of different parts of Germany. If subtitles are not a drawback then I recommend Tatort. I kind of hope that MHz will show the really early ones from the 70s and 80s
