Babylon Berlin

Babylon Berlin
We started this series tonight and it's pretty great. Hollywood Reporter sums it up nicely:
Based on a series of novels by German writer Volker Kutscher, the Raymond Chandler-esque crime story follows German detective Gereon Rath (Volker Bruch), who is sent to Berlin to investigate a porn ring run by the Russian mafia. The period epic — with a reported budget of $45 million, Babylon Berlin is the most expensive German-language TV series in history — is set against the social and political upheaval of Germany in 1929, when the world’s most modern and progressive society is threatened by rising right-wing extremism and a world economy teetering on the brink.
I looked for a trailer, but they were either in German, sans subtitles, or dubbed, which sucks, or in German with non-English subtitles, which don't do me any good. On Netflix it's in German with English subtitles, which suits me fine.
