HDS - Episode #27 Almost Krimi

We had a little problem with our podcasting equipment and lost our intended discussion of two excellent Krimis, The Black Abbot and The Hand of Power. However, we still managed to rock out for half an episode. Brad and I also give a shoutout to the MillCreeps. Check them out! So anyway, here is the new episode. And, as always, you can check out the archives here.


  1. Thanks so much for the shout-out, and sorry you guys lost your audio for the Krimi reviews. Just a suggestion, but maybe Brad can record on his end as a back-up in the future so it doesn't happen again. Glad you guys are putting out shows, and I'm soooooooo looking forward to the next Fulci episode!

  2. I think I've asked this already, but are there any good krimis on Netflix?

  3. The College Girls Murders is on Netflix. I've always pointed folks to that one. It's color, fast paced and it has Uschi Glas from Seven Bloodstained Orchids in it. I think The Strangler Of Blackmoor Castle is there, it's a bit sleepier but it was the first krimi I saw so I have a soft spot for it. And Monster Of London and Mystery Of The Red Orchid are there too. It's been awhile since I saw those two.

  4. @Aaron - Hey duder. Your comment went to spam. Thanks! I hope the Fulci ep was to your liking. Just found it! Actually Brad's computer fucked up and lost his end of the convo. We always record ourselves separately and I mix it together.

  5. Hey Richard & Brad,

    I listened to this show last month on my vacation (and to the Fulci III show thousands of feet in the air!) and really wanted to explain to you how much the TV "Krimi" means to Germans. The black & white Krimis of the 60s were popular, but far from being such a big part of the collective German consciousness (uh-oh!) as the modern TV versions since the 1970's have become. Krimis are HUGE here, especially the "Tatort" movies. No matter what age, sex, education, political or ethnic background, Sunday night is for many a sacred TV slot (and I'm one of the very few exceptions - I hardly ever watch a Tatort, but it's such a big part of our cultural life I could tell you about its history, relevance and cultural significance for hours). It's a big issue here, be it the choice of new detective teams, the ratings, or the oftentimes topical plots that guarantee a discussion on Monday mornings, be it at the water cooler or in the pages of the newspapers (including the smart ones!). It's hard to explain, because one has to know a bit about how our TV system works. But thankfully, I found a very cool article from 2009 which I thought you might be interested in:

    On a different note: I'm very busy lately, unfortunately; I keep track of my viewings and I watched one (1!) movie in the last two months! But I'm trying to catch up with the new episodes and I'm still enjoying them, of course! So even if I have to pile them up a bit, please keep 'em coming! I cheated somewhat and listened to the beginning of the latest show, and about choosing a topic for a show, well, I'm still looking forward to a Rob Zombie Halloween I & II lovefest!!!

    Hail Satan,
