So far I really like it. It has a lot of good insights into what life was like in the DDR.

The acting's good and the entire show is in German, which may be an issue for those who hate subtitles. If you don't mind them...I think you'll like this show.

Solid show.

Looks and feels pretty realistic from an outsider’s viewpoint.

Good to see competition in the 80’s Cold War TV space to go with Deutschland 83/86.

And the more current era Berlin Station.
