NY Times 2021 Summer TV Preview

Influential NY Times TV critic Mike Hale recently highlighted MHz Choice series Turncoat (Der Überläufer) in his Summer TV preview for 2021!

On Turncoat, Mr. Hale writes:

“An absurdity-of-war story in an unusual (for American audiences) setting: an isolated Nazi outpost in a Polish swamp, where a handful of German soldiers are outnumbered by the local partisans and desperately counting down to the end of the war.”


Acclaimed World War II drama about a young German soldier torn between a sense of duty, guilt and conscience, who ultimately defects to fight with the Red Army.
