Das Boot is ridiculous

This is a prestige German TV show, highly praised — and I’m sad to say, a bit preposterous.

I don’t want to get into details but mother of Pearl — talk about a show that strains credulity! Anyone here watched this yet? Am I alone in this or was this show — weirdly implausible?

Jürgen Prochnow was very hot in the original movie

Boosts, I loved it and it is widely praised. I think I last saw it a few years ago and it is as good as it was when it was first made.

What on earth don’t you like?

Oh, wait, I guess now you are referring to the TV series? I was referring to the 1981 movie.

Was the series also in German?

by Anonymousreply 805/24/2020

I watched it.

SPOILERS: Yes, the way the captain manages to get to New York after being dumped in a tiny boat in the middle of the Atlantic is ridiculous. Also, the fact Simone could easily kill Forster at the end but doesn’t (therefore leaving it open for a second series!) is inexplicable. He is the only Nazi who knows what she’s done!

I see that Vicky Krieps is in it. I haven't seen her in anything since Phantom Thread. She was great in that. But Hollywood wouldn't know what to do with her anyways.

Idiotic things:

Mutiny on a wwii German u boat

American in the French resistance

An Alsatian working in the highly sensitive U-boat arm (two of them actually!)

I’m sorry but this show is just too ridiculous. If it were American it would be heaped with scorn for being typical Hollywood nonsense.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
