TV-criticism to "Mirage – Dangerous lies" (ZDF): conspirators meet in the Louvre Abu Dhabi

The author team, Franck Philippon, Bénédicte Charles and Olivier Pouponneau, has a continued history spun a wild yarn.

Should you fail once, will help you regularly a happy accident out of your misery. From the audience, those of tolerance, it is expected that applying it when James Bond goes after a wild Hatz without Luggage, the continent, and yet the next scene in an immaculate Savile Row suit, enters.

Especially in the Action scenes, it seems to be a case of carelessness – because a ball hits a window in Taylor's head height. The bends-flight and remains unharmed. A Cabinet piece, he could be in a circus.

"Mirage – Dangerous lies" in the ZDF: Scenic desert and spectacular high-rise buildings

display values, there are, of course, enough. The circular Aldar Headquarters building, a real eye-catcher, is one of the main places. Excursions in the bazaars, in the picturesque desert areas or under water. Abu Dhabi's tourism industry can't complain about the lack of tourism advertising.

to be Fair, was added to provide that the ZDF Better has. Stockholm's Skyline is less impressive, the action of the local series "Hidden Agenda", which is also a ZDF co-production , but a lot more convincing and less predictable. Oddly enough, the station opted for a En-Suite-broadcast on Friday penultimate week, when a YouTube video in the time between 22:00 and 4:00 in the morning.
