Storyline

Follows Daniel Miller (Richard Armitage), who has just arrived at the CIA foreign station in Berlin, Germany. Miller has a clandestine mission: to uncover the source of a leak who has supplied information to a now-famous whistleblower named Thomas Shaw. Guided by veteran Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans), Daniel learns to contend with the rough-and-tumble world of the field agent: agent-running, deception, and the dangers and moral compromises.

Complex and Well-acted
14 May 2017 | by jdowney-57-371157See all my reviews

Berlin Station is a very John Le Carre type of spy story, but centered around the American CIA rather than the Brits. The story has requisite twists and turns, a complex plot centered around the War on Terror and a Julian Assange style leaker who wrecks havoc with the American spy agency and it's relationship with it's counterparts from other countries.

There are a number of good performances in this show. The European setting gives the show a different feel from most American TV fare, and that in itself is very effective in making the show unique. Even Homeland, which is similar in setting, seems very American, where this show just looks and feels different. The weakest part of the show may be the somewhat contrived and clichéd nature of one or two of the backstories that are supposed to add depth to the characters. Oh..she's in an interracial relationship, and he's having an affair with his secretary, and he's disgruntled and uses hookers because his kid back in the USA is disgruntled...etc. Some of that is too 1,2,3 check off the box plot devices that just aren't adding anything to the story.

The main spy story weaves its way through enough twists and turns to keep one interested, like a Le Carre spy novel, the angst and motivations of the main characters, and their regrets at past mistakes gives them the beat-down feeling of Smiley. There is no James Bond or Jason Bourne here, just people doing routine spy work and trying to cope with moral ramifications and amoral counterparts.

Superficially anti-CIA, I think the story is more about moral relativism, and the evil that men do. There are more bad-guys than good guys in this one.

If you like a complex plot executed well by talented actors, then you will enjoy this show.
