Did You Know?


The cassette tape with the controversial song Katharina and her friends are talking about is most likely the song "Jeanny" by Falco. The song was boycotted by several radio stations but sold over 2.5 million copies to become the best selling single of 1986 in German-speaking countries. See more »


When filmed over Ulrich's board, there are some action figures in the back. Some of them being from the action figure series "Combo". Whilst it is unsure, when they came on the market (many talk about late 80s/early 90s, some sites name 1988), there is an obvious flaw when it comes to the Battle Blade Skeletor figure. Battle Blade Skeletor is part of the Mattel-Series "The New Adventures of He-Man", which started in 1988 with BB Skeletor being released in 1992. So the creators of the series made some mistakes in the action figures. See more »

Yes, shocking dubbing
8 October 2018 | by tarkatheauteurSee all my reviews

Charlesponchon (March 21) is not wrong about this. The appalling quality of the dubbing is beginning to make this interesting series borderline unwatchable. If you switch on the subtitles, the dubbers and the subtitlers are using different translations. I will try to carry on, but I gave up on 'The Frozen Dead;' because of this issue. For those who are struggling, as I am, to keep track of who is who and who is related to whom across the 1986 to 2019 time-shift, I recommend the Wikipedia entry on the series.
