The exit from the drug-Empire

The second season picks up immediately at the end of the first season, however, several open action will not be followed threads, or just tell technically eliminated. Boom boom – suddenly, for example, Lisa and Moritz are a Pair again, and Gerda (Luna Schaller) is history. After you have earned with your Startup, almost the first Million, decides the Trio of Moritz, Lenny and newcomer Dan out of the drug Business to hop on and off.

 

Easier said than done: Moritz departs alone to the Dutch wholesalers and to explain the "Mydrugs", but the project ended, but the Teenager (who calls himself "CEO") and the adult feels threatened, wants to expand the Online Business they prefer. Finally, it comes to a serious lie to Lenny and Dan. Later, the mother of Buba (Maren Kroymann) and an Entourage of dark figures appear, the Moritz and co. also on the Pelle back.

Relationship and the lack of anarchy

The first season of "How to Sell Drugs Online (Almost)" was visually more diverse and colorful than the current successor, also more interesting for spectators who do not belong to the "Generation Z" – what was the funny, fast-cut montages that everything about the Internet and the drugs declared. The new Short-clip now has to deal with the problem of open W-Lans, or to show how to convert Bit Coins into Cash, this one-player again, with the Best of what "has to offer Htsdof" comedic to.

The gentle anarchism of the first season was, unfortunately, not developed further, even though there is enough Potential would have been available. Drug excesses or absurd gaffes under MDMA influence you get in "How to Sell Drugs Online (not Almost)" in any case. Figures such as the father of Moritz, and is likely to go down as the most naive village COP in the world in the series history, loses more and more credibility. Moritz, Lenny and Dan meet in the second season in a pretty weak antagonist, the Dutch suppliers have really nothing at all Threatening. The fear of Moritz and co. "killed" you can't understand anyway, without further ADO, even if, later, even a minor character to bite the dust must.
