    These things have never been technically accurate since El Cid but as I say it's not Die Hard or Death in the Snow Nazi Zombie horror. Plus this is not a documentary. None of the stations in any cop or fire service dramas are places you would want to work either but that's TV for you

    Tell her it's not a war story but a tale of family loyalties divided by idealogical schism and a social commentary on a distopian epoch of the mid 20th century set against a battle of love and devotion to duty in which good must triumph over evil! Either that or it's a period "bodice ripper". Your choice but they both work, trust me

    Just recalling the original series....a while back, there was tension & the first time I remembered a series in the UK, german made with english subtitles, I was glued every week, as I was about a year later with Heimat, a story of a german family from the end of WW1 to present day (1985 ish), I have fond memories of these as a teenager at the time.

    Just finished watching this, which is available in the UK on Sky Atlantic.

    It is different to the original film, in that it is less interested in the gritty reality of U-Boat life and more concerned with the drama, plots and sub-plots (and a fair bit of nudity too).
    There is as much action on land as on the u-boat, maybe even more.
    Some of the stories are a bit far fetched as well.

    That said, as someone who is very interested in anything U-boat related, i still enjoyed the series.
    As good as the original film? Probably not. But, like Mark says - providing you don't take it too seriously - still worth watching.

    Just binge watched the whole series and loved every second!! Superb entertainment from the high tension of the resistance sub-plot to the claustrophobic action at sea! Superbly acted too!
    Gets 10 out of 10 from me
