Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Set in the German capital Berlin, the series centers around a German woman and single mother of a teenage daughter, who starts a relationship and decides to live together with a widowed Turkish father and his two teenage children.
After the first season the title theme was changed. For the DVD release they erased the old title theme and took the new one for all seasons. See more »
For episode 68 (# 4.2) "Echte Freunde" they made alternative opening titles including "Stuttgart, Stuttgart" as series title. They credited Lolle and her friends living in Stuttgart with their character's names. That's why Felicitas Woll, Rhea Harder, Alexandra Neldel, Jan Sosniok and Matthias Klimsa acted uncredited in this episode. See more »

As I am living in Holland (German origin) I was really glad that I could receive ARD. The bad thing was that I could not talk with my friends over here about it (it's a shame that 'Berlin, Berlin' is not aired on Dutch TV).
I especially like the comic idea about it and the funny, weird and sometimes sad relationship between Lolle (Felicitas Woll) and Sven (Jan Sosniok).
The first season however is my favorite one (because of Rosalie (Sandra Borgmann) I guess) but still the other three seasons are very good as well. There is always something crazy, something funny, something unreal but still imaginably real in every episode (I praise the writer(s) - David Safier!).
If you have the chance just watch it and see yourself!
