Bizarre plots and yet you get hooked
I'd never believed to become a steady viewer of this series. It's my grandma's fault. She started it. And here I am, even watching old seasons. It's bad. It's contagious. I cannot help myself. It's almost embarrassing! Isn't there a jab? ;)
Those stories are beyond reality, awkward lines, sometimes one gets the feeling the makers never have been in a hospital at all. Hilarious, absurd everyday problems at the clinic, but nevertheless, one has to be in awe of actors achievements.
The series takes place at a hospital called "Sachsenklink" in Leipzic. Maybe that's the reason audience loves this award winning series. It's certainly a given reason to me. The hospital staff is mostly the same throughout the years. There is tragic, drama, lies, death, love, marriages, adultery and scheming just like in any other series. There are guest stars....But it differs in comparison to any other hospital series. I guess it's German. Typically German? I cannot put my finger on it: it is charming, to say the least.
Here is hoping it never ends!
