The finale was so crazy and inventive and well-executed (that Rath/Wolter shootout in particular) that I stopped questioning any of it and just went along.
Babylon Berlin is a self-conscious departure from the kind of history shows German TV cranks out by the dozens every year: Those tend to be drab, self-important, graceless and lacking in nuance.
The scenes created in the legendary nightclub are nothing short of astonishing. Forget the empty glamour of Luhrmann's ostentatious Gatsby, this is the true grit and unabashed sexuality of the underground.
Social context aside, the show is elevated even further by truly superb acting, and a narrative flow that assumes that viewers are intelligent enough to follow a story without having to explain every single twist.
It's all wonderfully gripping, and Bruch has the most pained, expressive eyes you'll see all year.
