The worst TV-series ever - so bad that it is good
This German (?) TV-series was, for some incomprehensible reason, bought to Finland and shown late at night by YLE (our state-funded TV corporation).
They had one script for the entire series. Christian Borg, a _very_ bad imitation of a "secret agent", arrived into this rich man's mansion. A talking lion statue complained about its' boredom (no, I'm not making this up!). In the mansion, the rich guy introduced some kind of a job or a problem somewhere, where Christian Borg had to travel to. They actually shot this in various holiday resorts around the world. There, Christian Borg always met some girl. This or some other girl was always shown topless at one point of the episode (they might have thought this would inspire someone to watch this crap). There was some action sequences, fights, bad guys, etc. and then Christian Borg solved the situation (or not). Oh, and his tagline was "Mitt namn ist Borg. Christian Borg" (or something like that, I don't know German).
The acting was terrible, the plots were horrible, music was camp, had ridiculous "gadgets" none of which made even as much sense as the talking lion statue. They did manage to stay in focus and film (tape?) it okay. The only professionals around were the cameramen and sound men?
This was so bad that it was actually hilarious.
