Great police series / O series excelenta de politisti
This Romanian TV series was quite remarkable. Bogdan Barbulescu managed to cohere comedy and action. I was also taken back by how well the actors played. Cabral is a very known Romanian actor / host. His comedy is well known throughout Romania and many people appreciated his acting skills. Cabral managed to make his character very believable and quite humorous at most times. I enjoyed watching this movie because it gave me a good image of how 'good' cops arrest criminals and stop corruption in Bucharest. I personally have never been part of a police force, so I couldn't verify if the series' context was 100% true.
10/10. One of the best Romanian TV Series I've seen.
