Trivia

The central motif of the series soundtrack mimics the "Doppler Effect" (a high pitch transitioning to a low pitch), perhaps alluding to the centrality of the Doppler family to the story. See more »

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 »

Watch in German with subtitles
13 May 2019 | by savagecaptionSee all my reviews

I tired to watch this with the English dub but it was just terrible. It's the only show I've ever given a chance in a foreign language and I don't regret it. If you're the kind of person who watches shows with subtitles anyways then this is for you. It just hits the spot in every way you can imagine. Amazing writing, acting, great plot, and leaves you mind blown.
