Storyline

A metropolis in turmoil. From economy to culture, politics to the underworld - everything is in the grip of radical change. Speculation and inflation are already tearing away at the foundations of the still young Weimar Republic. Growing poverty and unemployment stand in stark contrast to the excesses and indulgence of the city's night life and its overflowing creative energy. Gereon Rath, a young police inspector from Cologne, is transferred to Berlin in order to solve a criminal case - a porno ring run by the Berlin Mafia. What at first glance appears to be simply a matter of extortion soon reveals itself to be a scandal that will forever change the lives of both Gereon and his closest associates. Together with stenotypist Charlotte Ritter and his partner Bruno Wolter, Rath is confronted with a tangled web of corruption, drug dealing, and weapons trafficking, forcing him into an existential conflict as he is torn between loyalty and uncovering the truth.

Great start
18 October 2017 | by rmoreauautorSee all my reviews

As a German I feel a little desperate for good German TV series productions. The last I watched was Deutschland 83. Before that I really don't know, there is quite a big gap.

Babylon Berlin chose an interesting time period. The golden 20s. Not so golden for everyone, as we see through Charlotte Ritter and her family. The series starts in the year 1926. The future will show how far they get into Naziland. The takeover is still a couple of years in the future, but the general turmoil is already coming.

The production quality seems to be outstanding. Loved the last ten minutes of the second episode with a nice scene. There will be quite a bit of nudity. Which I don't mind, I like it actually.
