10/10 in the Hungarian league, 8/10 in international level.
I have to admit i have seen only season one, but i do not see it as the depiction of the "Hungarian Reality" as so many reviewer does. But rather as an enormously good satire of the Hungarian swindlers who had their gold age in the turmoil of the 90's, they kind of got addicted to their routines, and they fail to realise, that the world in which they flourished shrinks to be a petty one.
Like commit a life endangering, prison worthy crime for 1M Huf? (3000 Euro) In 2015? Serious??
Or parking the car everywhere, with a disability certificate, and it all serves as a status symbol? (For any possible reader from outside the postcom region: it is a status symbol, as it shows you managed to pay off the medical staff)
Hillarious. So originally East European, so sourly funny.
Why still 8 instead of 10? Because it resonates too well with the "you cannot make it in the right way" postcommunist worldview. And it is rather harmfull, here in Hungary. It is not realistic, and i even dont think, the series is about it. But it still conveys this message for almost all.
