Why no one has mentioned the director of series, Kreso Golik who is the most deserving man for the series' worthiness. He was so ingenious director that everything he made was the best in former Yugoslavia. So Gruntovcani is the best series in former country ever made, after them is also a great Golik's work named Dirigenti i Muzikasi, after them both is a large emptiness, and then fallow other Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian and Slovenian series. No one has depicted and played rural men and life so authentically... every detail. In addition to, these characters are so universal that, I am sure, the series can understand and love people all over the world.
