At the moment, I'm watching a relatively new German series called
" Türkisch für Anfänger " and so far I'm loving it. It's much better than any new German series, mainly because it's a comedy and it has some great humor.
Thematically, it's about the culture clash between Moslems and European Christians. A female German psychotherapist and a Turkish chief inspector move together. Both have - respectively - a son and a daughter and the everyday life between them isn't very easy. The main character Lena is 16 years old, then there is her little brother Nille (Nils), and their step brother Cem and step sister Yamur. Yamur has a strong belief in Allah, unlike the other two Turks and she tries to persuade the others to Islam.
It's a fun series, the best German one I've seen in a looong while. Most of all, it's quite politically incorrect.
The love triangle between Cem, Lena and her new boyfriend Axel (she calls him 'Axeli') is not only heartbreaking, but also very funny. Cem wants to beat Axel up ^^.
Morgen geht es weiter mit neuen Folgen!
