Another story of a big family whose life is full of problems and unexpected changes. Barbara and Lucjan are about 60-years-old. They have three daughters and one son. But the truth is that ... See full summary »
Whenever I am in Poland, I always seek this extremely funny and witty serial. When I saw this first in 2000, I was so laughing that nearly burst my sides. Please, keep in mind that this is not a real Polish family. No, this is just one huge exaggeration of the worst Polish (and Russian!) traits. What you have there - a drinking, lazy Dad, never at work and always telling his Son how to behave when in fact he himself cannot do anything properly. Son - lazy, stupid, coward guy. Mom - unhappy woman, who works for all her family and never complains. Her Mom - a sly, energetic, vivid Granny who hates Dad and always quarrels with him. Fat Neighbor - Pan Boczek - a real hapless man who always attracts mishaps. Old Neighbor - another sly, inquisitive man. Beautiful Niece, played by one and only Agnieszka Wlodarczyk - sweet, soft and so nice... After all, this is life, there are such unhappy but sincerely merry families. If you deny this, then you tell lies to yourself. Also pay attention to the Theme Song by hilarious band The Big Cyc - very much in Frank Zappa's style. If you are tired after a long working day, this is the serial for you!
