Kennedy's Brain is a captivating German crime drama that premiered on MHz Networks in 2010. It tells the story of a murder investigation that takes a gripping turn when a former Nazi's brain is discovered in the possession of a renowned neurosurgeon. The series follows the lives of two vastly different individuals, each with their own personal storylines. Ursula Hertting, played by the talented Iris Berben, is a private investigator based in Berlin. She receives a case to investigate the mysterious death of a woman who had been in therapy with a prominent psychiatrist, Professor Robert Seligman (Heino Ferch). Meanwhile, Seligman's life is spiraling out of control, both professionally and personally, as he faces mounting pressure in his personal life and is accused of malpractice by his colleagues.

The investigation soon takes a twist when Ursula follows a lead that takes her to a mental hospital in the Alps. There, she comes across the unusual case of a patient who bears a striking resemblance to the late President John F. Kennedy. As the story progresses, it's revealed that the patient was one of the scientists who worked on the moon landing program and was also involved in the assassination of JFK. But things take an even more shocking turn when Seligman's neurosurgery team inadvertently gives new life to the scientist, thanks to his functioning brain being transplanted into an artificial body.

As the investigation gains momentum, Ursula pulls together a team of experts to help her solve the complex puzzle of who murdered the young woman, and why her case is linked to the bizarre discoveries being made. Along the way, the team struggles to catch up with Seligman and his colleagues, who are determined to extract every bit of knowledge they can from the newly-revived Kennedy scientist.

The performances in Kennedy's Brain are outstanding, with an all-star cast that includes Iris Berben, Heino Ferch, and Michael Nyqvist, who plays the troubled and brooding investigating prosecutor. The actors bring their characters to life, skillfully juggling multiple storylines and themes as the series takes unexpected turns. The writing is top-notch, with a strong script and believable dialogue that keeps the audience engaged throughout.

The series is set against a backdrop of Cold War politics, with references to real-life events like the Kennedy assassination and the U.S.-Soviet space race imbuing the series with a sense of historical significance. The special effects and cinematography are also impressive, with well-executed transitions from real footage to artificial bodies. The show's pacing is balanced and measured, and it gradually builds up suspense as the characters delve deeper into the conspiracy at the heart of the story.

In conclusion, Kennedy's Brain is a cerebral and engaging thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end. It delivers powerful performances, an intricate plot, and a narrative that's both thought-provoking and thrilling. It's the perfect show for anyone who enjoys complex crime dramas, science-fiction themes, and political thrillers that explore the darker side of human nature.
