Beautifully shot in Germany in and around the city of Berlin. It is refreshing to see a TV show that does not feature Canada posing as the location.
This spy tale starts off by playing a last scene first, then going back and tell the story. Not my favorite way to start a show.
There are a lot of twists and turns in the plot and there is no "black and white" as far as bad guys and good guys. That is interesting & refreshing for the viewer.
Almost every character is a shade of gray as far as their misdeeds and past sins.
A very binge-worthy show that keeps you on your toes.
It is exciting without overdoing the violence.
Lots of LeCarre type of office political drama as people compete for promotions or just try to survive the turmoil.
