Mini-Cap: Deutschland 83 – 99 Luftballons of Fun

Deutschland 83, the new spy thriller on Sundance, takes up where The Americans left off. Literally. The season three finale of The Americans was named for the date of Ronald Raygun’s infamous “evil empire” speech, and that’s exactly the point at which Deutschland 83 starts—with America’s first Movie-Star-In-Chief trash talking the Soviet Union on television. The second episode airs tonight, and I’ll be doing regular recaps over at HNTP. Click here to read my insightful take on Episode 1 at Happy Nice Time People.
