Without a doubt the best Finnish sitcom in the 90's.

Talented young actors and actresses combined with witty and sarcastic script are the essential factors what "Isänmaan Toivot" TV-series is made of.

If there ever has been such a thing as well-made Finnish sitcom for audience ranging from say 16-35 years, then this has to be the one.

Take my word for it and check this out if you ever get the chance.
