'How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)' Season 2: Upset by English dubbing, fans say they'd rather watch it in German
Spoilers for Season 2 of 'How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)'
Season 2 of Netflix's German Original show 'How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)' dropped earlier today and it is safe to say that we're immensely impressed. The fast-paced, energetic show follows Moritz Zimmermann (Maximilian Mundt), the tech genius who started MyDrugs, an online store to sell ecstasy across the world. His online megastore, which sells different kinds of ecstasy, takes no time to become the most popular way for the millennial generation to buy drugs — clean, quick and neat. Season 2 of the show follows Moritz and his friends Lenny Sander (Danilo Kamber) and Daniel Riffert (Damian Hardung) navigate the challenges of running this website.
While the show has several highlights, several fans are complaining about the English dubbing of the show. The Netflix German original is distributed across the world and much like the other German original 'Dark', most of the show's audience is not from Germany. Hence, many from the audience rely on English dubbing. However, many pointed out how the dubbing is pretty disappointing. "The British English is so bad," a fan commented on Reddit with a sad face emoji. Another fan added that the dubbing for Season 2 "sort of kills the show, in my opinion".
Another viewer completely blasted the show's dubbing: "Feels like the old Nickelodeon lip-syncing that was done for other languages." "Never watch dub," another fan wrote on Twitter. And many others agree. "I changed the settings back to German lmao with English captions." "Is it just me or is the show really badly lip-synced ? I really like this show and I like the characters but the lip-syncing just annoys me," another had said.
Complaints about the show's English dubbing have been doing the rounds ever since Season 1. For some reason, many from the audience simply do not prefer watching the English dub. While watching the original in German and reading the English subtitles is difficult for many, it doesn't look like the English dubbing has appeased anyone.
Season 2 of 'How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)' is currently streaming on Netflix.
