Lol
10 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Watched the Russian Mexican episode which was about a big dinner night and it was shot so obviously during the day. Even when Olga runs out of the set to do some errands - its broad daylight LOL. Unless the restaurant is in Antartica where the days are 72 hours long!! Fantastic entertainment. Don't look into it too much just enjoy it for being so utterly awful. I would even go as far as calling it a complete spoof. The acting is a disgrace reminding me of the cameo actors in the Red Alert computer game. I lost it in the golf episode where the golf cart attendant snuck in his group of mates who were completely off their guts tearing up the golf course, running over each other and sinking the cart into the lake! Especially loved the undercover golfer PI who held his hand to his ear every time her was ordered to do something. So good. Everything possible happens during the stings and the camera is always in the best position lol. It's so good. Enjoy.
