German dark comedy that hits all the Marks...I mean Euros
25 May 2019 | by Marc_LowellSee all my reviews

Just finished watching all 6 episodes of Season 1 of "Hindafing" over two nights (would have finished it in one if I didn't have to get up the next morning) and it was time well spent! Who knew that Germans could be that funny, and Bavarians at that! The tale of a fast-talking, drug-addled small town Bavarian mayor (they don't even have their own exit off the autobahn) who more or less inherits the job (and his given name) from his father and then proceeds to step in one pile of Scheisse after another. A man who if he didn't have bad luck wouldn't have any luck at all. A man who consistently snatches defeat from the jaws of victory. A man who...you get the idea. Who is this man? Mayor Alfons Zischl Jr. and he is someone who definitely doesn't tread lightly through life but oh what a thrill it is to watch him go from one disaster of his own making to another and survive them all, albeit a little worse for wear. German actor Maximilian Brückner plays Mayor Zischl for all he is worth in a bravura performance directed by Boris Kunz. This 2017 German television series is currently available in North America either on a 3-disc MHz Choice DVD set or as an add-on "MHZ Choice" subscription to Amazon Prime Video (U.S. customers only). Start watching now and spend the best 266 minutes of your binge viewing time with this dark German comedy.
