Germany’s coming for your ass, justin.
The entire world has simultaneously decided to stop putting up with his crap. It’s about time.

The history of the Alarm für Cobra 11 high-ﬁves The high-ﬁve with Semir Gerkhan (Erdoğan Atalay) only began appearing with episode 48, ‘Höllenfahrt auf der A4’, the début of Tom Kranich (Réné Steinke): none of the episodes with Frank Stolte (Johannes Brandrup) or André Fux (Mark Keller) in the lead featured it. Since then, till Ben Jäger’s (Tom Beck) last episode (no. 260, ‘Einsame Entscheidung’), and with the exception of some season premières, it has been present. Both Tom and Ben had their high-ﬁves ﬁlmed twice; the Chris Ritter (Gedeon Burkhard) one was re-edited, but not re-ﬁlmed, for widescreen. The current ﬁnal frame of the title sequence now shows Semir and Alex Brandt (Vinzenz Kiefer) together without a high-ﬁve.
“The most important thing you have to give children is love and security. No matter how much you do: 20 minutes’ cuddling at least per day in there, sometimes reading a story in the evening—no matter how difficult everyday life is. We have more and more children in Germany who grow not only financially, but also in emotional poverty. They think they are worth nothing. This is a joke.”
