Goofs

When characters use telephones throughout the series, the typical American "warbling" ringing tone is heard instead of the German "beeping" ring. Also, when speed-dialing is used, the touch-tones are heard in rapid sequence as in America; phones in Germany don't do this. See more »

Memorize the characters' names!
15 June 2019 | by gmzylmzcnSee all my reviews

I highly recommend this tv series. I don't want to compare it to any other tv series but it reminded me of Twin Peaks in terms of its darkness. Each episode raises audiences' suspense, which is a good thing. However, you should note every character's name on a paper, prepare a family tree otherwise it will be harder to remember. Great show!!
