Goofs

Despite being set in 1906, the Vienna Riesenrad (ferris wheel) is shown to have only 15 gondolas when it would have had 30 gondolas. During WWII, the Riesenrad was damaged by allied bombing and was rebuilt after the war with only 15 gondolas to help extend its operational life (but with the gondolas having only even numbers which explains why there is a number 24).

Echos of many better series
20 January 2020 | by howardeismanSee all my reviews

Another smart guy/ dim bulb mystery series.

The justification for Dr. Lindemann being a omniscient know it-all is that he is a student of Sigmund Freud. Freud, in real life, had no interest in forensics and even failed a medical/forensic exam! How Freud's rambling ideas about intra-family romance translate into Lindemann's knowledge of stagecraft, for example, is not explained. This, to me, was a lingering problem. Why does this guy know so much? Is he an alien?

Hardly a scene passes without a memory of some other series, usually a better one, being recalled. The setting is new, but the plot seems to be a bit of a cut and paste job. Characters are stale. They are not rounded into interesting people nor does anyone have any particularly wittty lines.

The mystery, thus far, (I have only seen the first episode) is faintly familiar but still pretty intriguing

Worth a look but don't change any plans just to see it.
