This sleek German drama is often referred to as “the best German television series of all time”. It’s a rare insight into the criminal underworld of Berlin, a city known for its appetite for parties and drugs, but rarely put in question about where those drugs come from.
It follows a Lebanese drug cartel and its leader, Ali “Toni” Hamady, who wants to get out of crime to protect his family.
Crime is not “cool” (kids!), but that doesn’t mean that a show about crime shouldn’t be. And 4 Blocks, in everything from atmosphere and music to its depiction of rarely-portrayed gangster nationalities, is really cool.
