Unlike many other reviewers i think this show is pretty close to reality. Also acting, camera and specifically set design are amazing. The director paid attention to small quirky details and i just love the main character who is energetic, a bit evil, but after all just a real human.
I can only assume, why so many Berliners hated this series (see the shows FB page): Their main point of criticism is, that it shows too many clichés. Yes it does. But those clichés are just also true at the same time. Many people (still?) don't want to see that. Yes, those clans exist the way the are shown, yes, there is betting manipulation in the DFB, yes, there are blackmailing cases, yes, there are Nazis in Marzahn who look like those guys, yes, the Hells Angels are tied to all of that, and yes, there are a lot of corrupt police officers. That my only point of criticism: The corruption problem is actually worse.
