Satirical comedy of a 'buddy cop' series... set in 1983 communist-run Romania.

The fucking Jordache jeans *capitalist invasion* bits get better in each scene they come up.


(another scene, directly after this one, had me laughing pretty good when a detective's daughter happens to pick up a pair they had brought back to his home.)




"Drop the fuckin jeans!!"

:lol:

Watched part of the first ep. Could not get into the jokes on popular culture plus Communist propaganda. Weird bird that show.

Definitely an odd mix. Plus everything is exaggerated, of course. It has a slight Airpline type of satirical vibe, but less rapid-firing.

The first episode was iffy. But the second and third have been better. Mainly due to the 'evil capitalist whores' faux-propaganda bits. Some of those recurring Jordache jeans and Monopoly game anti-capitalist bits had me going. :)
