Deutschland '83

Post your views about what's on the telly-box (not about transvestites, unless it is a programme about transvestism, and even that is borderline unless there are also ladyboys).

First episode and really liking it a lot. Loved the 'He Can't play the Piano' bit and that they didn't massively overplay the Easterner out of Water angle.

Bridge of Spies and now this (and Tinker Tailor on the telly the other night). It's like furred collared spy porn for me. Though I've not spotted any furry collars yet, but there's still time.

It's very good, but they do seem to gloss over a lot of difficulties.

I mean, I am from Newcastle originally and live in Leeds. If I was pretending to be from Manchester there would be all the 'Ohh you have a funny accent' never mind the 'Oh, I am from Manchester too, where did you go to school/oh so did I/ etc etc.

There are a few anomolies but generally quite well done. The STASI IT Depts problems with the floppy disk was funny.

For the real nitpickers, The East Germans couldn't watch West German TV. Not so much because it was forbidden, but they used SECAM for their TV not PAL like the West. US is NSTC so i had picked up a multi system TV so could watch all 3 nations and of course SSVC's efforts at forces TV until we got Sky in 1990. Eastie TV used to be good for their May day parades,Sat night soft porn and Sunday Trabant racing, where they closed off roads in the countryside and had a go at rallying at speeds in excess of 55 miles an hour :)

I remember stories about west german bank-robbers driving over in their audi getaway cars while the former east german police still had trabbies.....
