Ernõ Blaskovich lost everything after the Hungarian Revolution of 1848. Kincsem, a magnificent horse gives a purpose of his meaningless, self-destructing life. He gets a chance to gain everything back: revenge, love and fame.
I'm also very proud of the show, as it sheds light on the corruption in politics in my country where freedom of press is heavily suppressed, media is bought up by oligarchs close to the ruling party, and as such, government propaganda is everywhere.
A big part of the show, in fact its main theme, is showing the lives of such a family, where the father has (and gets) ties to various political and financial characters which enables him to further increase the quality of life for his family members - wife and two kids.
It's displayed in a very entertaining way however, as the other part of the show is about character development, interpersonal relationships, etc.
Thanks to HBO the production quality is excellent and it stands its ground as an international program enjoyable by anyone in the world. Even the local streak (the corruption) can be easily understood by anyone and they can assimilate with it as corruption is in any country to various degrees.
The 3 seasons show drastic changes in the characters in every possible way. It's dramatic and exciting.
A side note: HBO GO allowed watching the full final series on the day of ep1 release, which is unique to HBO GO, as HBO itself shows one ep per week. It was a great touch and rewarding the fans of the series allowing them to binge-watch the final season in one go if they choose to.
I can only recommend it wholeheartedly. 10/10
