Two competing versions of Ronald Reagan winning the Cold War singlehandedly are airing on a television near you. Which one is more accurate? HNTP takes a closer look at all the secrets, the sex, the murder, the music, and the corruption of world history.
This is it! The Season One and/or possibly series finale of the bildungsroman that taught us to embrace the cold war, break out our Walkmans, and sprechen sie deutsch. Will we get that Star Wars moment we've been pining for?
Last week Martin saved his mother's life. This week he tries to save the world, only nobody will listen to him. It's the second to last recap of Deutschland 83's inaugural season!
Apparently the secret to staying alive in Deutschland 83 is not to be remotely competent at the whole spying thing, because those who are keep sacrificing themselves for those who aren't. More death, betrayal, and prostitutes in this week's recap.
Ingrid's health takes a turn for the worse. Will Martin make it back in time to save her? Alex makes a bold, but not unexpected decision. So does Annett. Grab your German-to-English dictionary, because it’s Week 5 of Deutschland 83.
Sorry, Martin, you're stuck in the vile, decadent, and altogether wonderful West a while longer, where beautiful potential love interests will continue throwing themselves at you every 15 minutes, and only half of them will try to kill you.
When East Germany was under the thumb of the Evil Empire, a young soldier is forced into the undercover spy biz to save his dying mother and get back to his super-hot girlfriend, although not necessarily in that order.
