Superstore (2016-2021) one of the most popular sitcoms recently made in the CSA. This hilarious sitcom is set in the St. Louis branch of a fictional workers-owned syndicate called 'Cloud 9', following the comedic misadventures of the union members who work there. The eclectic cast of misfits include the lovable and sarcastic Garrett McNeil (Colton Dunn), eager overachiever Mateo (Nico Santos), chirpy and constantly positive Union Representative Glenn Sturgis (Mark Mckinney), sweet and simple Cheyenne Thompson (Nichole Sakura) and no-nonsense Security Officer Dina Fox (Lauren Ash). Rounding off the main cast are the two more popular characters who had a long-running romance throughout the series: snarky but warm Amy Sosa (America Ferrera) and everyman Jonah Simms (Ben Feldman). The show concluded with the two of them getting married after Amy was promoted to Union Representative after Glenn retired to spend more time with his family and follow his dream of writing children's books.

The series quickly gained a cult following throughout the Internationale, with plans for a spin-off series involving Garrett heading up a new branch of Cloud 9 in Scotland.

Scarlett Johansson starring as Major Kusanagi in the live action adaption of the popular Imperial Japanese manga Section 9. While many critics did question the wisdom of casting a Westerner for this role, her performance turned out to be one of the movies strong points, allowing it win several awards and smash box office expectations across the globe. Recently Johansson has been voted by the Japanese as the Most Beautiful Western Woman of 2017.
 
Without the toxic influence of Joseph Goebbels and the Nazi Party, what films do you think would have been made in Germany? I know Weltkrieg era movies would be popular, but what about romance, comedy, adventure or noir?
 
Who’s Karl May?
Karl May was a German author who lived in the late 19th century. He wrote largely in the Western genre. He was known for his sympathetic portrayals of Native Americans at a time when such a thing was unheard of. Hilariously, Hitler saw the Sioux as a "fit race" from reading Karl May novels, because he had never heard of the Sioux Tribe in any other context.

I know they were historical monsters but it will never be not funny to me that Hitler and Stalin both loved Westerns.
 
Meaning of Life is more or less the same, a series of unrelated shorts situated around a theme. Life of Brian... they probably make something else, maybe situated around a different story.

Or maybe Brian actually did all the things and Jesus was given the credit for it, but Brian gets the better of Jesus in the end by getting him Crucified, at which point he walks away singing "we'll meet again." Happily
I love the idea of Brian getting a happy ending, but the Monty Python crew didn't want to mess around with Jesus. They love poking fun at people, but they have limits.

Would Hollywood Westerns play a role in Germany's entertainment industry?
 

Cute.


Would Hollywood Westerns play a role in Germany's entertainment industry?

If you're asking if Hollywood Westerns would be shown in Germany, I don't think they would be popular unless they were in the style of Karl May's books, which as PMWKing said, had a very different depiction of Native Americans than Hollywood did.

I do see German filmmakers studying Hollywood Westerns for techniques around cinematography, music, etc.
