Counterpart and Deutschland 86 caught my attention this week. I watched the first season of Counterpart when it came out and it pure spy heaven. As I’m typing this, we’re sitting at Schipol airport, waiting to board our flight to South Africa after a short visit to The Netherlands and Berlin. I still need to take it all in and go through the photos and videos of our trip when we get back home over the weekend to put everything into perspective and to revisit our trip. When you’re on such a whirlwind expedition, small things get lost in the details, especially stuff like museum visits with their countless statues and especially in Berlin. Who is dickhead number 7 without the nose again? Don’t know. Look at the photos of the descriptions I took at a later stage. No time. Gotta move! But I remember most of the Deutsche Spy Museum and I remember that the underground at Alexander Platz looks like the biggest crazy Vereeniging badkamer in Berlin:
This alone was enough to make me feel like Jason Bourne was going to get bliksemmed through a train carriage window by some big bald Russian or that J.K Simmons from Counterpart was casually going to walk past me and inject Polonium 210 in my neck.

And now I can’t wait to get back home to take a holiday from my holiday and get into some serious communist and cold war stuff. Go and dig through The Plumlist top ten pick for yourself:

It’s a well-known adage that the truth should never get in the way of a good story – and the ones on Mike Judge: Tales from the Tour Bus are crackers; anything that could be somewhat creatively embellished can easily be forgiven for the sheer entertainment value.

 #6 Counterpart is not just a good show: it’s a fascinating thought experiment
Setting it in Berlin, which was the epicenter for Cold War espionage and surreptitiously slipping over “to the other side” like a spy, is appropriately complex.
