Well, it's about time somebody put this show on Flavio's resume. I love this show, even though I only saw one episode, Braccato, which is like the 43rd episode in the series. Flavio excellently plays family man, Franco Mancini, owner of a car rental place. This is a really unique show because all 73 episodes take place in the kitchen, and there's only one camera angle, so the actors performing in the scene, have to make sure that they're well in view of the camera. It's kind of like a sitcom, but the good thing is that there's no audience laughter in the background, each time someone says something funny. Flavio's physical appearance in this show, is a little bit heavy set, but then this was right after he finished filming St. Peter (2005), so he had to be in shape for his role in that film. But overall, Flavio delivers his lines with great enthusiasm, and of course, there's one instance, where he's trying to keep a straight face. There's a lot of ad-libbing in this show, and that's what really makes this show a lot of fun to watch. I would really love it if they could put this series on DVD.
