Low budget, excellent comedy!
11 June 2007 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

This show is one of a kind. I watched Black Adder and...What can I say, Crni Gruja is much better for me. But it is probably because I am Serbian. If you watch Crni Gruja, and you don't have a clue about Serbian history or mentality, you will find it quite average. It shows Serbia under Turks at the end of 18th and beginning of 19th century. Crni Gruja is a merchant who works both with Serbians and Turks, and because of that he often gets into trouble. Moreover, his uncle is Karadjordje (Black George),ruler of Serbia, but that fact doesn't help him at all because Karadjordje is very cruel to him. Like Black Adder he has two stupid servants-Cheda and Bole which are sometimes more hilarious than Crni Gruja. I recommend you all to watch it, it's one of the best Serbian shows ever!. Pozdrav iz Srbije!
