  • Berlin Station

    Lately, I've been watching this series based on Cold War Berlin since the fall of The Wall. It's quite well done, filmed throughout the European sites - today's episode was filmed in Talin, Estonia - and makes an interesting change from the usual fare.

    Anyone else watching this?

    Sounds like a Len Deighton novel.

      Ah...you're a Deighton fan! Me too.

      It does, a bit, but it's well done with flashbacks to the beginning when the Wall fell to set the stage for the current situations. It's a lot like the stuff the Brits are doing these days.

      Bit like Game of Thrones, as well. They just killed off one of the major cast members.

        .
        I found Deighton way back when but I prefer his earlier stuff - just as I like earlier Le Carre. The first George Smiley, novel 'Call for the Dead' was the best.

                    It appears that the first season of Berlin Station ended last nigh with Estonia saved, more characters killed and some deadly revelations.

                    This series holds great promise for the future.
