Our Take

8.0
The Staff

This high-production-value German series is about a junior investment banker who finds herself at the center of events that will cause a big financial crash. The show starts with the crash then goes back a year to tell the story of how the young Jana Liekam got caught in the middle of it. 

Bad Banks functions sometimes as a cautionary tale on the dangers of investment banking but it’s mostly just a simple, good, and enjoyable corporate thriller. It’s also a great introduction to quality German TV, if you’re ever looking for one.
