When Oleg goes to the grocery store to inspect wrongdoings, there is a Stalin picture hanging in the manager's office wall. Shortly after Stalin's death in 1953, the Communist Party have started what historians now title the De-Stalinization process to erase the legacy of the long time Soviet premier. Thus, it would be impossible to have a Stalin portrait hanging at the wall of a state-owned grocery store in 1984. See more »

What is happening???
22 March 2017 | by ottawa101See all my reviews

The series is far too complicated. The first couple of seasons took a bit to get used to with subtitles and introduction of characters but it was action packed. Following the relationships was intriguing and the tension was what drew me to the series. The last season and the first couple of episodes this year are just complicated to follow. Who are half these people and what is their story line? It is also time to stop the subtitles. It was different in the first couple of seasons but it can be done in English. Do the first few words in Russian and like in "Hunt for Red October", merge into English. It does not add to the story line any more.
