Not Good. Not wholly Bad. Just Poor. Set in Nazi Germany with about as much 30s flavour as my arse. The designers thought all you needed to do to make a place look like Nazi Germany was hang a few banners on street corners. Never mind 30s style haircuts for the men, just leave their 2008 hardos in place, no one will notice. Phooey. Too bad to sleep to, not bad enough to turn off after 5 minutes. Edna says 2/5 stars.
