    The somewhat belated follow up to the early 80s German classic starts on Sky Atlantic tonight. Sounds promising - set in 1942, after the cracking of the Enigma code and focussing on both a U-boat crew and the resistance in La Rochelle:

    The new and improved Das Boot – now with added women

    If there’s a second one surely it should be called Das Boots?

    as long as its done properly, but its a hard act to follow

    sometimes you wonder why people bother....a ben hur remake? who thought that would be a good idea?!

    From what the Guardian article says, it sounds like it works. Sensibly, unlike the Ben Hur remake, it's a follow up, not a total remake of the original at least.

    I loved the original series. I'm always of the thought that that you shouldn't go back but if The Guardian review is as good as it says then I'll be watching and hoping for another belter.

    Didn't realise it was a sequel. Assumed they'd just remade it and dragged it out into a series.

    The original was extended into a series as well as the cinema release.

    Granda was a Submariner during war and thinks Das Boot is a load of shit.

    My Great Granda was torpedoed by the bastards. We don't know what he thought of the film though, as those torpedoes were a bit too explodey.

    The original film and the subsequent t.v. series were superb first time around.
    Dunno why they want to re-invent the wheel.
