summ, summ, summ

So I am watching my first episode of the 41 year old German crime drama, Tatort (Crime Scene). It is the Roland Kaiser episode. I understand very little except that Roland Kaiser is essentially playing himself. There is a down on his luck Rocker named Manni. They seem to be antagonistic toward each other. I suspect that it is a veiled reference to the dust up that he had with Matze..... I certainly hope that is not the case.

So far I like this a lot. Professor Bernhard is very much the serious version of Sheldon Cooper. The female cop is a twin to a co-worker and there is a cop on a bike. I admire that man's skill to use no hands while biking to talk on his phone and check his watch.

I wish my German was better to understand some more of this program. I am a little lost.... when they are not talking schlager.

  1. Correction: There was no dust up. Apparently Google translate is not good at handling the bulk of the vernacular in common articles. Or even very good at translating friendly chatter on blogs. I wish my German was better so that I could have caught the inferences in the article that I read.

    Turns out the conversation was a friendly rivalry over sales. It is really annoying to not be able to understand German better.
