Tv Season Info

The EPIX Original Series BERLIN STATION, a contemporary spy series consisting of 10 one-hour episodes, follows Daniel Miller, (Richard Armitage), who has just arrived at the CIA station in Berlin, Germany. Miller has a clandestine mission: to determine the identity of a now-famous whistleblower masquerading as "Thomas Shaw." Guided by jaded veteran Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans) Daniel learns to contend with the rough-and-tumble world of the field officer -- agent-running, deception, danger and moral compromises. As he dives deeper into the German capital's hall of mirrors and uncovers the threads of a conspiracy that leads back to Washington, Daniel wonders: Can anyone ever be the same after a posting to Berlin?

Critic Reviews for Berlin Station Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

It is disappointingly light on hokum, weighed down rather by seriousness and its ambition to rival the best.

Berlin Station so far looks like a series worth riding out, with Jenkins, Armitage, Ifans and Forbes all making strong contributions to the cause.

Berlin Station... has too little thrills of any kind.

It's a solid cast, but apart from the always reliable Jenkins, rarely do any of these actors do much to stand out.

Dec 6, 2018 | Rating: 5.2/10 | Full Review…

This is absolutely worth sticking with, much more than the sum of its parts.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Sleazier than most is CIA man Hector DeJean, played with a persuasive air of moral corruption by Rhys Ifans.

Oct 26, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Sometime toward the end of the first episode, the show hits critical mass and turns mesmerizing and addictive.

Oct 28, 2016 | Full Review…

Filmed in Berlin and Spain's Canary Islands, Berlin Station has the right look and feel of a great spycraft series, but it lacks the drive or urgency of a show like Homeland.

Oct 27, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The Berlin office teems with manipulative, power-grabbing operatives who have their own agendas, well played by the likes of Richard Jenkins, Michelle Forbes and Rhys Ifans.

Oct 14, 2016 | Full Review…

This is a show that wants to be complex but winds up being convoluted instead.

Dec 6, 2018 | Rating: D- | Full Review…

As rookie efforts go, it's more than solid.

Oct 28, 2016 | Full Review…

Making something that's just OK or even pretty good is not good enough in the oversaturated world of television today.

    Action packed yes. Fast moving sometimes. However, if agents as stupid as this worked for The west, we would all be speaking Russian.
