Deutschland 83

Deutschland 83

It's 1983. The Cold War is hot. Russian missiles in East Germany are already pointed West. American missiles will soon be placed in West Germany, pointing East. The threat of nuclear conflict looms. Martin Rauch, born and raised in East Germany, is sent undercover to West Germany as a reluctant spy for the Stasi Foreign Service. Everything is new, nothing is quite what it seems and everyone he encounters is harboring secrets, both political and personal. DEUTSCHLAND 83 is a coming-of-age story within a suspenseful thriller, set against the real events, culture wars and political realities of Germany in the 1980s.

Not believable at all. The idea East Germany would plant one of their soldiers as aid to a top West German general is unrealistic. Spies are recruited from within. At the end of episode one his East German handler shows up as he trains with his troop and carries with her print documents of his previous spying!

Timely history lessons made ever-so-palatable by some great characters, amazing production & German New Wave music. Prost!

The series is very good. I enjoyed reflecting back to the eighties. I dislike the fact that if I have to stop watching for a period of time the series or episode does not resume. I have to forward the episode and guess where I stopped watching.
