It's 1983. The Cold War is hot. The threat of nuclear conflict looms. Born and raised in East Germany, Martin Rauch is sent undercover, as Moritz Stamm, to West Germany, to work for a top General in the Bundeswehr. Officially, his job is to gather intelligence on the placement of the Pershing II Missiles. A secondary gig develops, infiltrating youth culture through close relationships with the General's two children. But nothing and no one are as they seem.

Not bad. I wonder if the scene early on in the movie was accurate: could someone do direct dialling for West to East Germany at that time ? I was in Berlin around that time; passing West to East through Checkpoint Charlie as a tourist. Things weren't that loose.

I enjoyed this series! What was great about it was also the fact that it includes real people from this era as part of the story--Petra Kelly, Udo Lindenberg, etc. Also the advancement of tech --computers and Walkman. Not to forget the music of that time period.

It gives a different point of view of the cold war era, just before The Wall came down.

On par with the best BBC and Scandinavian productions. Standout soundtrack. Fast-paced storytelling. Watchable and believable characters. According to the extras, this is the first German series to hit American audiences. I hope it is the first of many. Brilliant! Highly recommended.

Great characters with a story that keeps you watching. The 1980s setting in both East and West Germany is well realised. There's suspense and humour all the way through!

Comparisons to The Americans aside, this is an interesting show from German TV and well worth watching. It provides an interesting insight into how Germans felt and reacted to the cold war and a divided Germany during the Regan / Andrapov period and the burgeoning peace movement in both countries. You also see the generational differences between the younger post WW II Generation and their parents. Looking forward to season 2 set in 1986.
