Poor plot, like most Krimis ... but I watch them anyway
I pretty much agree with the previous commenter -- very dumb idea of structuring show in an American format with an artificial plot, based on fairy tales, albeit Cherman FT's.... I watch Krimis mainly to add something to my pitiful Deutsche, but few have even Cherman subtitles (which is what I would prefer, rather than Anglische). Something like this in Murcahn moviedom is that movie Seven (Pitt-Freeman), with a stupid plot structure based on the nummer sieben. Gives the audience a crutch to use to feel aware of the general plot structure, rather than having them find out and figure out fully, along with the cops, what is happening and how the criminals are motivated, whom they are going to strike next, etc.
I guess, in general, pretty much all crime shows, esp TV-series-types, are subject to the same limitations of methods and modes. Constant screen writing of cop shows in a series, US or Cherman, has to be mind-numbing, and affects the audience the same way. Which is why audiences prefer real movies, based on well-written books, with unique plots and characters. And subtitle options. And more shots of shirtless Fräuleins wudd be guude, Krimi series or real movies, any language. Culturally uplifting and redeeming of schlechte Grundstücke....
And as a rule of thumb, remember that If the Plot Fits Brad Pitt, a Bad Plot Will Be Your Lot .... (I now take that back -- he did excellently in some other movies, like the unique mystery/spy/thriller re a dumb gym trainer / blackmailer, with Clooney as a bumbling State Dept maroon caught up in some torrid affair or other -- nothing like the idiotic Oceans thriller caper movie series they did. Quality plot / quality acting. Depends on what he's given, and/or what he will insist on getting -- as a big-name star, he ought to be able to insist on quality book-stories, and even buy some himself and make some movies himself.... Thinque Robt Redford's Navajo cop set, based on Hillerman books....) This is bluef ... and I approve this message ....
