Das Re-Boot


#21

“Alle Mann voraus!”


#22

If this show ends realistically the U-boat will be lost at sea, as the vast majority of them were. I wonder if the producers will have the guts to do that.


#23

If they do more than one season we could see the two “Happy Times” and the two letdowns.

#25

And here’s a different trailer

Can I just say that, despite feeling like this whole endeavour is pointless given how good Das Boot is, the thread title is brilliant.


#27

Actually I believe you already did and I absolutely agree with you!


#28

Oh my god, hahaha. Thanks for pointing that out. I sometimes re-read threads and come across old posts of mine saying exactly what I was (re)thinking. I should have done that here! It’s not even a long thread. At least I added something this time, haha.

I’m not enthused by the addition of the espionage/betrayal/Gestapo plot line. I get that a TV series needs more than just the linear plot of the movie, but this just seems all too familiar.

Yeah, reading the articles, this is becoming “thriller Soap Opera/Intelligence/Resistance fighters/let’s get some women in there, huh?. Whatta you think, Bob?” land for me me . Interest…waning…significantly…

If they had just told the story of another crew later in the war, I’d have been more impressed. This sounds a lot like a “re-imagining” dressed up in a sequel’s tarty clothes.


#32

Have to agree here. Why do they have to remake any film into a soap opera?


#33

Is this out or are these early reviews? I need something to watch.


#34

So anybody know when and where American audiences can watch this?


#35

It’s Sky, so presumably it’ll be Comcast exclusive unless it’s covered under their agreement with HBO.

Never mind:

Humm, I guess it is time to get my free Hulu preview.
