Another excellent German TV series in recent times
4 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

When my friend suggested me Bad Banks knowing I'm a finance professional who might like it, I reluctantly started watching it thinking of another traditional German TV-Drama; ended up binged all six episodes eventually! Bad Banks is another addition to the excellent German TV productions in recent times along with 'Dark', and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The acting is great, along with a perfectly paced story without stretching it too much like other TV shows. The production quality is top notch and one of the best in recent times, even better than 'Dark' IMHO. My only issue was the lead actress who appeared to be too young sometimes for this role (she's just 23 IRL), even though her acting was great. Overall, a highly enjoyable show and it's a 9.5/10 from me!
