Is anyone else a huge fan of this Austrian tv series?

I have the two multi season box sets with English subtitles.

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.

Do give it a watch if you can.

Also great for practicing your german :)

I haven't bought the Italian version yet. Glad to know it is good because being unsure was holding me back - as its a bit pricey!

I confess much as I like tobias Moretti as moser, I liked Alex, Gedeon Burkhard better, thought he had more rapport with Rex

My dad loves it! I enjoy the dog obviously, but am not a huge fan of subtitles.. Although, the series is done well

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.
