It is an unwritten maritime law: The captain is the last to leave the sinking ship.
Now, after 38 years and 83 episodes – and I've seen them ALL – ZDF leave their dream ship for the first time without a captain. Just put a first officer (Daniel Morgenroth, 55) on the bridge.
ZDF quota steamship without boss? For me as a fan unthinkable – even if only for one episode.
Without guidance, "MS Amadea" over Easter (as the new episode goes) off the West African coast.
► Who will get the still inexperienced hotel director Hanna Liebhold (Barbara Wussow, 57)?
► Who will Cruise Director Oskar Schifferle (Harald Schmidt, 61) get on his head?
► Who will find the right solution for missing, unhappy lovers or hopeless disagreements within minutes?
Without the captain, the TV steam room runs!
Wanting to cross the "dream ship" in the North Atlantic, ZDF bright sailors would probably steer it full steam against an iceberg!
