    Angry [TV] The Blacklist and their "German" actors.

    Please for the love of god: German doesn't sound like that. They say German words but they slur them so hard that even I, as a German, have a VERY hard time understanding them. I'm going even that far that they sometimes don't even speak German. Just blurging out some learned German words in a row.

    And even in east Germany, they have a funny accent but that doesn't even comes near their accent.

    Also, we're are not all Neo-Nazis. Yes, they exist. Yes, they commit hate crimes. Yes, they're scum. Yes, they exist in almost every country under different names, agendas or colors.
    An addition to that; there are no "Nazis" anymore. Maybe some very old, very poor old guys somewhere in South America with a lot on their minds or maybe even not. They're called Neo-Nazis. If at all.

    But that is more off topic than I desired it to be.

    In that regards, have a nice day/morning/afternoon or night, where ever you are

    Have you ever seen tv actors try to speak Swedish? It's ridiculous, and it's probably true for any non-english language spoken in american tv shows, except maybe portuguese and spanish. Don't take it to heart, you'll enjoy the show way less, and the cause is something that doesn't even matter.

    I don't see them claiming all Germans are neo nazis either. Where was this said? As far as I understood, this was only a group of criminals, and not in any way a representation of the population of Germany.

    Couple things here. First, nobody thinks that the criminal groups they represent on The Blacklist are the demographics for your nation. Second, I really couldn't care less what they say or sound like when they're speaking German. I'm too busy reading subtitles, as are most americans, so I'm sure it isn't a high priority. Not to mention the fact that while there have been a few German characters on the show, overall the show isn't about Germans.

    People need to stop searching for reasons to be offended by TV and movies. It's fake. If you don't enjoy it don't watch it.

    None of them are worse than the iranian villains... Even the sound of them speaking farsi was enough to make me pause the show and stop the laughter...

    As an ex-gold coaster the drongo accent isn't very far from my standard accent anyway.

    if their speaking german i dont understand it anyway so im just reading subs. i dont think all Germans are Nazis or Neo Nazis but honestly its not something i pay attention to anyway. im more focused on the current plot rather than what happened a long time ago.

    As an ex-north Qld'er I concur.

    Which is why it's a good thing we're seeing more of Daniel Brühl.

    Lol welcome to the world of Movies/Tv Series where anything that goes outside america is mostly wrong i cant remember how many times people tried to talk dutch or called dutch people german, i think the only actor in a movie (that i can remember) that spoke actual dutch is Matt damon in The Bourne Idenity.

    I saw the Tom Keane episode last week and thought it was kinda funny to see them go german lol.

    Or try being a "yank" who doesn't buy into Andrew Lincoln's southern accent.
