If you get a chance, watch it...
6 March 2016 | by heikoquantSee all my reviews

German TV productions are usually meh at best. Sure, there was Heimat or Berlin Alexanderplatz, but mostly they suffer from small budgets and even smaller ambition. Crime Scene Cleaner is the rare exception from the rule, a real gem of unhurried and intelligent comedy. And more importantly, it is original. Not some knock-off, stuff you've seen before. The format allows it to be great in spite of a most likely abysmally small budget.

So far you are stuck with Canal+ in France and Network MHZ in the US, to actually see the show. Which is more than you can say for most German TV, but sadly the show is far from readily available. But it certainly worth the 30 day trial of MHZ streaming service.

Give it a try, you will not regret it...
