The most "countercultural" TV series I've ever seen, and a dearest childhood memory.
The pathetic, little image of proletarian Mr. Rossi packing fish in a factory and being constantly humiliated by his boss has lingered in my mind and my life since I first saw the series on Spanish television as a child. So many years later, I've managed to get a tape with the "Mr.Rossi looks for Happiness" movie (what was aired on TV was the movie fragmented into episodes). Now that I write for television and that I am a University professor teaching European Television, I understand, even more,how marvelous and humane Mr. Rossi was. My students are American, and whenever they tell me how "countercultural" The Simpsons or South Park are, I make them watch "Mr. Rossi Looks for Happiness". Have you ever seen a more acute criticism of our society? If you want to know more about that series, contact me. I'll be publishing an article on it soon.
