Audience Reviews for Berlin Station: Season 1

    One of the best espionage shows I've seen. I love Homeland but from start to finish this may have been better. It has an overall stronger cast, though of course maybe not as strong of the main 2 characters. But the was more steady and more realistic, yet exciting and intriguing. You could say the same comparing it to The Americans. In it's execution in ways it is more similar to that, with better pacing. Again, a strong cast, but of course the two leads in The Americans were great. TURN was maybe the best spy thriller tv show that was highly underrated, with a deep strong cast, so in terms of those things it is similar. But this one hits on many topics, the politics, the risk, finding whistleblower (season 1) going deep cover to infiltrate (season 20, brink of war (season 3), etc. Very strong show.

    Why Deep State got such a high score on RT and this hasn't is a mystery to me: solid cast, pretty good scriptwriting, believable characters (mostly, I'll get to that later), great location filming, a nice blend of racy action with clandestine scenes in underground bars where contacts are made; what's not to like? Well, the characters are all good bar the comic book Chinese general (I work in China and speak some Mandarin; this character was lazy stereotyped writing at best and doesn't match up to the other better casting) and also the Mossad officer who sounds like she's trying to do a bad Russian accent and failing; she certainly doesn't sound Israeli. My only other fault is that the last episode didn't make much sense in its resolution; but to say more would plot spoil, there's enough here to make me watch the second season, unlike Deep State, which put me into a coma.

    The first few episodes were slow to start & directing was mediocre but things picked up by ep. 5 both with story + direction. End of S1 leaves you wanting more. Stellar performance from Rhys Ifans,

    who the hell is reviewing this TV show...maybe they're just too afraid to admit that they aren't intelligent enough to understand the plot, and that fact pisses they off. Convoluted? Not thrilling enough? Hilarious. Berlin Station has complicated storyline, but it is not a mess that confuses the audiences. The crew deserves more than a 60% rating. The show is definitely underestimated, and if you watch it with patience, you'll realize most of the critics are talking nonsense. PS. the defected Chinese general Houjin Lin speaks strange Mandarin, and his English is way too good ( my first language is Mandarin, so that airport scene is super funny. I can assure you that he gives up speaking Chinese while shouting )

    one of the best shows on tv. please keep it going.
  • Mar 05, 2019
    Action packed yes. Fast moving sometimes. However, if agents as stupid as this worked for The west, we would all be speaking Russian.
  • Jan 27, 2019
    Great pace of action and drama. Just enough to follow effortlessly. Thoroughly enjoy.
  • Jan 06, 2019
    Great Show with loads of thrills and spy action. At the moment I’m watching episode 6 and I’m really excited and looking forward how this season is going to end.
