So no one likes inspector Rex, also known as Kommissar Rex? It was the number one rated show in Europe for years, and also very big down under. Its a police procedural, but the star of the show is a GSD.
I have the first 10 seasons on DVDs -it's in season 13 or so - but I discovered it's also now on Amazon prime with subtitles and there are some episodes on YouTube too.
The dog is so wonderful and after many years his son took over the role.
So, I’m resurrecting this thread. I just discovered this show after it was mentioned in The Two Popes (movie). I’m watching the first episode on Amazon. I love the dog! I searched here to see if there might be other fans and only found this old thread. (I know, it’s an old show.) You can buy individual episodes (in German with English subtitles) on Amazon for $2.99 each, if you want to see if you like it before investing in the whole series. I love dog movies and books, even the terrible, sappy ones. I can’t say Inspector Rex is great art, but it is entertaining, and the dog is adorable and impressive in what he can do. Oh, and the human star is easy on the eyes, too.
Directed by Delbert Mann. With Timothy Bottoms, Eva Marie Saint, Arthur Hill, Glynnis O'Connor. A recently blinded man becomes one of the first American users of a seeing eye dog and must fight to remove the legal barriers impeding its use.
