Did You Know?


The soundtrack in the bridge game scene is a quite rare and almost forgotten song of an Italian songwriter, Adriano Celentano, titled "Prisencolinensinainciusol" a bizarre grammelot in fake english. See more »


During the investigation of Jakob Ungerleider the Colonel/Oberst mentions that Yuri Gurki is an exchange student from Ukraine. In 1988 an officer of the forces of the GDR/DDR would probably have said that Yuri Gurka is from the Soviet Union which was the politically correct term at that time. See more »


Ray Stussy: Hey! Dickhead!
Maurice LeFay: Huh?
Ray Stussy: I gotta place, turns out a place that needs some robbing. A little robbing, not wholesale burglary, just a specific... Just looking for a certain item. And if you do it... well let's just say... your little problem goes up in smoke.
Maurice LeFay: What are we talking about?
Ray Stussy: A stamp.
Maurice LeFay: A stamp?... Like a... postage stamp?
Ray Stussy: Yeah.
Maurice LeFay: Cool... Cool... So I mean, I know I'm the moron but...
Ray Stussy: It's not that kind of stamp numb nuts... It's a vintage stamp, it's got you know... sentimental value for me... ...

Great First Show!
20 April 2017 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I am most curious how the East German angle is grafted into the story and if the Chief's step-dad is part of that. I wish I could have read who wrote the two books found in the hidden locker?

This looks like another great season; last year's was good, but no where the level of season one. It left too many unanswered questions for me. This one seems back on track.

I'll have look on line for the author's of the novels and see if these secret finds are hidden treasures which will some way of connect the East Germany, Cold War, interrogation seen at the beginning. I love how this show connects what seem unrelated events into a chaotically, absurd reality which by seasons end fits together like a finished, mosaic puzzle.

This my favorite series on TV; it is show well photographed, directed and written. I also love how the show always presents women as forces of nature which men must reckon with.
