It's been a while since I saw anything but Hollywood famous series. My wife acidently found this gem online, and I thought I'd give it a try, as the name suggests it might have been a Russian remake of arrested development. How I was wrong... This series is so much better! It's an amazing, smart and funny satire at Russian reality of politics and every day life. We finished watching it in two days time in the middle of the week, which given our work schedule is nearly impossible task, yet it was worth every minute of wasted sleep time. The acting couldn't be better. The main (anti)-hero is a corrupted mayor of a mid size town somewhere in Russian, who was caught on a bribe and is forced to live in the community housing. He steals nearly every scene he's in. Each and everyone of the cast, play their part to perfection. There are very funny references to both Russian and Hollywood culture from early 90'th. In short, amazing series which story in most parts can't be predicted, so you're in for a treat. I took a star of perfect rating, due to a bit slow story development ag the beginning, and less than perfect acting of teenage actors, who couldn't hold their own against their grown counterparts. Still they were very good. Highly recommended.
