Storyline

This television series takes place during the first Czechoslovak Republic (1918 1939). The stories make use of the historical existence of an investigative constabulary unit (the precursors of today's detectives) and its actual cases. At the time, the constables were a key organization, helping to investigate and solve criminal activities in mainly the countryside and small towns. The lead characters in the series are constables from the Brno investigative unit who solve crime as part of their everyday experience from tragic and violent felonies to banal and even slightly humorous cases of petty thievery and other wrongdoing.

A Humorous serial which is not a bit humorous indeed
24 August 2007 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

4 reasons why I'm not a fan:

1. The serial is called "Humoresky", what means it should be "humorous" (Ok, I don't expect a monstrous comedy, but just a little bit laugh should be included due to the name). In fact, there is no real humor or just a shadow of a memorable joke or a funny scene (if you're intelligent enough not to consider scene where the cops are throwing spaghetti into the air, raging inside the dining room like a bunch of silly old morons, to be funny). Now, forget about witty dialogs or wise crack.

2. Although the episodes are well stuffed with historical equipment (cars, costumes, guns) there is a complete lack of old-time atmosphere. To be honest – ANY atmosphere is missing at all. The story is filmed so badly, that the authentic historical stuff is completely useless and total impression equals zero. Watch the Poirot series to know how the old time illusion should look like.

3. Some smaller parts are played by actors from Brno. Their "artistic performances" are frequently very poor – especially women acting is sometimes unbelievably pathetic.

4. Arazim - the main character, makes absolutely no psychological progress. Plus the character is not very jolly at all. His actions are always predictable and his mood is always bad. Don't know how many times he said to his companions something like: "Guys, stop this, it's not funny" (He is usually right, the sidekick cops are really NOT very funny).

Conclusion: 3 stars, deserved mainly for heroic fight with the low budget
