Humor of a special kind..
7 February 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

It's not easy to describe a series as this one! I think 'hilarious' is the best possible way to label it. You shouldn't ask yourself to much what you're watching at. Just enjoy the nice acting-work, the crazy mimics and the 'amazing' plots. I believe these series have the same spirit as 'In Den Gloria'. Not only because most of the crew-members are identical, but also because the kind of humor. You can laugh a lot watching the film, although there is something dramatic in the characters. Sometimes you just feel sorry for one of the characters, when he, once again, does something stupid. I have noticed that the Flemish public can be divided in two groups: Some people really don't see what's funny about this kind of 'over-acting', others consider it to be 'funny as hell' and really enjoy it. Maybe it's like 'Fawlty Towers' in a way: You like it a lot, or you don't, but there's no way in between..
