Inspector Rex

I don’t watch a lot of TV, but for a while Inspector Rex was a regular weekly escape, as he always gets his man (or woman) “with canine cunning … and a ham roll”. (Actually Extrawurst, apparently.)

The Viennese setting is often interesting and Rex is always entertaining. But in seasons 4 to 7, he’s in danger of losing star billing to good looking Gedeon Burkhard who plays Rex’s human companion, Austrian homicide cop, Alexander Brandtner. One of Burkhard’s ambitions is to play James Bond. He’d fit the job, methinks … imagine James Bond with an Austrian accent.
