I agree w/ most of what was said in the "hmmm . . ." review; however, I found the series compelling thruout..
I thought that the acting was excellent. The story provided a lot of info on how mental illness is viewed in Russia. Considering how it was politicized in the USSR, this was useful.
When I moved to Richmond, VA, someone told me that it was destroyed in the Civil War and never rebuilt. This wasn't true, but the remark came to mind as I saw the interiors and exteriors in this series. It felt like Russia was destroyed in WW II and never rebuilt.
