Ten German television shows you should know
We're entering the dark season in Germany, and there is no better time to curl up on your couch and experience the, um, joys of German culture from the comforts of your living room.
Few things provide culture shock to those new to Germany like Wetten, dass ... An institution in its final run (the penultimate episode brought Canadian actor Will Arnett many laughs as he tried to explain the experience to Jimmy Kimmel) after the departure of its long-time host, Thomas Gottschalk. He left after a guest paralyzed himself performing a stunt. Celebrities and side shows combine as the guests have to bet on the success of the unusual, er, talents of the "everyday Germans" who are featured.
