Storyline

Parody comedy designed to resemble a non-existent gritty 1980's Cold War Romanian police show that promoted Communist ideals. The action-packed and blood-soaked first season finds Detectives Gregor Anghel and Joseph Baciu investigating the murder of fellow officer Nikita Ionescu and, in the process, unraveling a subversive plot to destroy their country that is fueled by what-else-but the greatest enemy: Capitalism.

Goofs

The conceit of the show is that it was a Romanian-produced TV series which was made in 1983, only re-dubbed into English. However, the show is better-produced in terms of filming quality and technique than even American TV was at the time, and is in the wrong aspect ratio. It is clearly a modern, 2010s production.

This series is hilarious!
1 September 2017 | by kgrovebruceSee all my reviews

This series pokes fun at both Western and Communist societies, and there are so many quick one-liners it keeps you on your toes trying to catch them all. Brilliantly done, clever and lots of fun. The costumes and scenery are authentic and spot on. It was hard not to watch them all in one sitting, they are that addictive. Please make another season!
