Added DiffLines:

* NotUsingTheZWord: "Böser Boden". A fracking poisoning (WordOfGod admitted it sounds preposterous) turns the village people definitely ''not'' into zombies. But WordOfGod also admitted the film purposely leans on the rules and conventions of the Z genre.

* MindScrew: 2018 episode "Meta" technically is ''no'' MetaFiction. OK, in this film we have a [[ShowWithinAShow film inside a film]], also called "Meta". Which tells the story of ''this'' film. But not exactly, and the Kommissar is slowly getting bonkers about it. (Which happens to the Kommissar at the end in the film in the film, whoops, very minor spoiler.) If your head didn't asplode yet, it also mixes meta-level with [[Film/TaxiDriver Taxi Driver]]. [[DrosteImage Oh, and of course "Meta" in "Meta" has to show "Meta".]] And the usual opening credits happen in a cinema. And the credits of "Meta" in "Meta" lists some of the same actors as "Meta". And...and...even Douglas Hofstadter was seen running screaming out of the cinema. (You are strongly advised to take the stance of the colleague of the Kommissar who is the Scully to his Muldering - none of the events in the film(s) ''need'' a meta- or supernatural explanation.)

* NWordPrivileges: Professor Boerne's assistant Silke Haller is a little person ([=ChrisTine=] Urspruch, who plays her, is 132 cm tall) and Boerne not only gave her the nickname [[RichardWagner Alberich]], but continually makes short jokes about her. "Alberich" returns the favour and sees his jokes as a sign that he respects her for her competence and does not pity her. But woe to anybody who actually laughs at Boerne's jokes - then Boerne will make him or her feel deeply embarrassed.

* TheUnintelligible: Actor Til Schweiger has always been known to deliver his lines in a very mumbling fashion. As Hamburg's Hauptkommissar Nick Tschiller this has become memetic.

The series is usually broadcast on Sundays during UsefulNotes/PrimeTime on the German channel ''[[GermanTVStations Das Erste]]'', the Austrian channel ''ORF 2'', and ''[=SF1=]'' in German-speaking Switzerland. You can expect to see reruns of older episodes on some of the regional tv stations about every other day.

* AIIsACrapshoot: ''HAL''. (Duh. Contains loads of ShoutOut to TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey.) Set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture (a novum for Tatort), "Bluesky", a self-learning surveillance program, revolts against his creator by [[spoiler: hanging a murder on him and even is responsible that he is shot by the police.]]

*** The one time she did[[note]]Episode 551: Sag nichts…[[/note]], she ended up owing Thiel one because it caused a fire hazard alert (with her being drenched), and Boerne (and the other doctors) would have been furious at her if the policeman had opted to tell them, as the alert causes the institute personnel to evacuate, leaving their (often time-sensitive) work unattended.

** ChekhovsClassroom: It's a university lecture hall, but right in the second Münster episode, Thiel pulls Boerne out of his lecture to discuss the current case. Later, his team finds a gun that may or may not have been used for one of the murders in the episode; first thing Thiel does is checking if there was blood sucked ''into the barrel'' because that is what Boerne had lectured would happen when you put the gun right to the head.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the first Münster Tatort, ''Der Dunkle Fleck'', Professor Boerne implies to be rather averse to hunting for sport. The latest (No. 21), ''Fangschuss'', however, has him studying for a hunting license because his favourite golf course is being swamped by the plebs.
