Yes, the miniseries is watchable until 27.9.2019 in Yle Areena. I will definitely watch it.

I just fear that the comparison with original film is initially kind of disappointment. These TV series are usually watered-down versions of the original. :roll:

But if it is Babylon Berlin level series, it is a completely different thing then.

It is nothing like the original. Well, there are U-boats, it is called Das Boot and includes a sample of the orginal Das Boot theme music.

Half or more than half of the series is spent ashore focusing on events surrounding mostly a communist resistance cell, the German effort to catch them and a little about the Frogs too.

One single event that takes place on the submarine appears to be taken directly from the original Das Boot too.

Overall OK, imho. Some stuff feels a little too fantastic though. Why would someone like Wrangel know detalis about fighting around Charkov in 41-42? I did not find the U612's special mission to make sense either...

Sometimes the original is so good no attempt should be made to recreate it.

There are a few exceptions. Fargo for one.

I figure the name helped sell the TV-series around the world. But since it is not a remake, or even a sort of sequel I guess some people will be pissed off when thinking they get Das Boot with modern graphics and it's something very different.

I checked a few websites (Amazon Prime, IMDB, Wikipedia) to see if/who in the US is carrying this tv show.
I have not seen anyone in the US carrying this.

If someone sees otherwise, please indicate who is carrying it.

This makes me want to revisit the original. Seriously...we have all been there before...right? If not...shut the fuck up.

All the best Battle of the Atlantic movies end with a bunch of sobbing krauts trapped in a bottomed out submarine using a hammer to tap "Please stop hewting us" in Morse code on the hull as the water slowly rises above their necks.

:lol:

I think Das Boot may be my favourite war movie ever. Or at least joint first with a select couple of others.

I made my wife watch Das Boot (the extended sub-titled version) with me once. I hyped it up so she was all prepped and understood it was one of the "Greatest War Films of All time."

She refers to it as "Das Pain," and any hint that she might ever have to watch it again evokes immediate NO!
