once again German TV productions proof how easy one can burn 10'' or 20'' $ on a historical content and get ZERO out of it. Aldon chains up with the latest ken follett miniseries or 'wanderhure' where you would need a 3-digit-million-budget to cover the books. these historical contents could be the next gladiator movie or boardwalk empire miniseries, however with only a few million plus some German amateur actors from the kiddy club program you get 100% bs. also i thought it would be easy to produce a hotel story with 90% indoor shots and the historical site still alive in Berlin, i was terribly wrong. after seeing kaiser William ii. for the first time in part 1 i simply switched off my TV. that guy looked exactly like the English political cartoons during ww1. and all of this rubbish payed for by all German citizens, coz it was a ZDF production by the non-private network where every German is so happy to pay $200 p.a. ROFL.
