Like many reviewers here have pointed out, this TV show presents the life in Soviet Union in a totally different way. Here we see a country which is sunny and colorful with characters which can be related to people in any other country. At first I thought this could be a propaganda funded by the current Russian government but it also showed the corruption and bureaucracy prevailed during the communist rule. This is vastly different from typical gloomy and melancholic Hollywood depiction of this country.
