You know that. The drone flies low over a forest. Dark music sets in. A deep voice says: “Something will come. Something dangerous …”. The voice is well known. She is the one of the narrator who already announced the disaster in the Netflix blockbuster “Dark”. Ever remembered at “Tribes of Europa” a lot about the time travel drama, which celebrated the first German surprise hit on Netflix with three seasons. Six episodes of “Tribes of Europa” were finalized at W&B Television Production by producers Quirin Berg, Max Wiedemann and Maximilian Vetter.
The series was invented by Philip Koch as a showrunner, headwriter and director of the first, second and sixth episodes.
The plot is easy to explain: In 2074, after a mysterious catastrophe, Europe fell apart into countless small states.
The se so-called “tribes” fight for dominance over the continent. Kiano (Emilio Sakraya), Liv (Henriette Confurius) and Elja (David Ali Rashed) from the Tribe of Origines are drawn into this conflict. An aircraft belonging to the mysterious Atlanteans crashes near the village with an important message. Now the hunt for the “Cube” begins. A strange futuristic device that contains a message. From Friday, February 19, “Tribes of Europa” goes online worldwide on Netflix.
It happened in the forest
If you don’t want to wait until Friday, you can spend your time with the new Luxembourg series “Captains” to evict. Here, the inspector of the same name, a sullen, serene guy, investigates a murder disguised as a suicide. Because the body of 15-year-old Jenny Engel (Jil Devresse) is discovered in Manscheid. As if that weren’t enough, their twin sister disappeared without a trace. Is there even a double murder on the program? Since the case is too big for the local police, Inspector Luc Capitani (Luc Schiltz) is supposed to run. Supported by the young local police officer Elsa Ley (Sophie Mousel), who has a little secret herself.
And who first has to explain to the cop from the city that things are a little different in the country. Because the search turns out to be very difficult.
The manscheider are suspicious and disapproving. Somehow everyone has their secrets and no desire to see them exposed. But haven’t we seen this too often on Netflix? Basically yes. “Black Spot” or “Swamp” comes to mind spontaneously. Either way, Capitani is an old school cop who still has an ace up his sleeve.
Checked in at the horror hotel
A documentary series is currently causing a stir on Netflix: It revolves around the infamous “Cecil Hotel”, a shack in the drug district of Central LA. It has always attracted suicides, rapists and all sorts of seedy rabble. Killer Jack Unterweger was also a guest at the time.
The subject of the four-part documentary is a bizarre criminal case from 2013. At that time, the 21-year-old Canadian student Elisa Lam disappeared from the accommodation without a trace. Cameras show the young woman as she enters, but not as she leaves. She also seems to be paranoid. And the elevator is acting weird. So where has the young woman gone?
