This is not about the movie though, a new TV show that came out. If you liked the movie, you will like the TV series.

No. Lol. No SJW or politically correct stuff in this series so far, quite the opposite.

Women characters are involved with some intrigue, espionage, resistance movement type stuff. Is well done, how is all connected. On Episode 3 now. Yes, drama. Well done though.

The first episode opening scene - pretty gripping about life on a U boat. Damn.....

Series in terms of production reminds me of Babylon Berlin.

Good. I am so tired of the SJW stuff on tv/movies etc. Once I see that or global warming, climate crap, I turn it off.

It really shows how cramped the living conditions were on a Sub.

Well.....I was wrong. End of 4th episode - as you can expect it seems these days on all shows to appease the alphabet mafia - out of nowhere they have the two lead female characters assume a lesbian relationship. Sigh...

Like how they do this in the middle of the series, so you are still compelled to watch the last four episodes to see how all else pans out with the other story lines. Where as did in first episode many may just turn off. And the way they did it is almost pretty blatant, in it comes out of nowhere almost like mid production the alphabet mafia/SJW got word and demanded that quickly throw the two main characters into a positive lesbo relationship.

Some of the outright discord / mutiny, la k of discipline on the sub is starting to get a bit old also. Will probably finish off the season, but seems with the above mentioned crap, and how it seems to be dragging out too much with the drama, they stopped short of perfection on the series.

Figures.....series ends with a cliffhanger.

Overall, would have just been better to watch the original movie again.
