Usually I would say a show as horrible as Ha'shir Shelanu isn't worth even mentioning for good or worse because even a negative criticism for it is a free publicity it doesn't deserve but unfortunately some people with minimum artistic understanding and zero artistic standards have chosen to leave their remarks in this site and even recommended people from abroad to watch it. watching this series i am afraid will undoubtedly damage the slowly emerging reputation of Israeli cinema and T.V making in the world. so for those of you who wonder: In Israel like in every other place bad TV is being produced when the ratings are good. The show itself is amateurly written and acted. The plot is stupid and unreliable like in every common soap opera and sometimes worse. The primary actors were certainly chosen only for their singing abilities which are their selves not that impressive except maybe for Ninet Tayeb's singing. What they lack in acting skills they try to compensate with dialogues being shouted (especially Maya Dagan) and spoke Vulgaricly. The more professional and famous actors in the show Like Hana Laslaw or Tuvia Tzafir are probably there because it pays well and sadly there are no many other options in the Original TV productions market in Israel. This is a common phenomenon. Take Hana Laslaw's Character for instance: it's obvious this Character is relatively more interesting and funny not because it was written so well but only thanks to the improvisation skills of Laslaw who seems to treat the show as it really is - An amateuristic acting/singing workshop were you can do a lot of fun and nonsense and even get paid for it! The dialogues are full of slang and street language (not cursing) not as a way of sending any artistic message but because the all thing is poorly written with no slight of effort to put any thinking into it. I am not asking of course that they speak Biblical or Talmudic Hebrew but rather insist on keeping standard and accurate Modern Hebrew. Finally I would say Ha'shir Shelanu is a series created so that some people will have an excuse to sing from time to time with a plot in between whose role is to connect one singing segment to another as such it's far far away from being the greatest Israeli TV series ever.
