Since we got Netflix Germany at the beginning of this year I’ve started watching a lot of shows with my wife. She’s gotten me (halfheartedly at first) into Dr. Who… Which subsequently got me to wondering first why everywhere I look lately I see the TARDIS. AAAAnd.
…if Dr. Who was a German series would he be called Dr. Wer and use a Deutsche Post Packstation as his TARDIS instead of the familiar Police Box? See the TARDIS?
Maybe the one standing at the entrance to our apartment complex is one…
My favorite thing about the Netflix Germany @NetflixDE is they release all of the shows produced by netflix at the same time as they’re released in other countries, and wait for it… You can watch every show in the original language! It was a Sunday afternoon when I realized this while playing around with the tv settings. I silently celebrated the triumphant discovery (since it was a Sunday and there are laws about being quiet) even more enthusiastically than a choir of monks participating in the Hallelujah Chorus.
It was a truly tremendous hallmark moment of moments in my relentless pursuit of not having to only watch local tv or go through multiple sites of streaming videos hoping that they had all the episodes, the video I was watching would have the whole episode all the way through to the end… Or worst of all a video player that froze midway through whatever I was watching.
At the beginning of the year @NetflixDe had a very sparse collection of antiquated shows, but now. Now! Only mid-way through the year the standard has been raised to the point we only watch Netflix as a family.
