Storyline

Con artist Maik Schäfer switches his fake conductor's suit for a real soutane while trying to escape custody and ends up in the catholic parish of Läuterberg. Standing in for Vicar Sanman, Maik participates in the parish members' fates and fortunes, and deals with their problems in his own unconventional way. At the same time, he has to help out his brother who is stuck in Berlin with a busted drug deal and a 50,000 Euro debt with a local gangster boss. To pay him back Maik plans to get his hands on the parish's precious but well-kept monstrance. On top of that, choir teacher and police officer Eva Hellwarth start to show interest in the new vicar - though in a different way than he had hoped. Written by ninalochmann

Nicer than can be expected from the outline - with unexpected charm
28 February 2018 | by supermaggieSee all my reviews

The plot description comes across like the garden variety blueprint for a show for bored housewifes: A(n attrative) con man (can't go without the crime element) poses as priest and while hiding out in a small town solves a lot of problems and even finds some romance (hello Thorn birds and Thorn birds-fans among the housewifes). Not only does it sound cheesy, to a certain extent it is. It basically is a cheesy, clichéd, run-of-the-mill show, but it has enough charm and provides so much harmless fun, that you do not mind too much. In its best moments it even reminds of the New British Cinema flicks - and not just because of the occasional redheads. The problem-solving is a bit easy and ideal, but it seems that the authors gave it enough thought to come up with charming and helpful solutions to the many human/everyday problems Maik encounters. So even if you usually react allergic to cheesy housewifes- or past-retirement - entertainment (like I usually do), give this nice little show a chance, it might paint a smile on your face - and who can say no to that?
