One of the best German TV shows I've seen!
1 July 2002 | by Woody_28See all my reviews

"Zimmer Frei" is an original TV show where the weekly guests try to convince the audience to give them a room in the living community consisting of the two hosts Götz Alsmann and Christine Westermann. All I can say is that if you get the chance to watch it, don't hesitate! The hosts are great, the games are really funny and the comedian Cordula Stratmann is sooooooo hilarious! If the guests are cool as well (which is not ALWAYS the case) you will get to see a show where you can learn a lot about the guests and laugh your head off. I love it :o)
