Marijn De Valck,
The outline of the plot has been adequately described in a former contribution to this site.Although the series has many local characteristics that can only be fully understood by a Flemish public, it offers that undeniable element of universal appeal that is inherent to all outstanding sitcoms.People are basically the same all over the world and cultural differences are merely appearances that mask our true and similar identities.All good script writers, directors and producers who are aware of this fact always succeed in surpassing the limitations of their immediate environment. "Lili & Marleen" apart from having a keen eye for detail and historical exactitude is supported by a team of professional actors who excel in portraying typical individuals we are likely to encounter in everyday life.The series is without any doubt one of the best and most witty sitcoms Belgian television has produced in recent years.
