Discovered yesterday on Amazon Prime one quirky show... "Comrade Detective" This is a Romanian 1980's crime show developed by the government to promote communism.... it is well worth watching the first episode... guess who the bad guys are?

Capitalist America!

It's been dubbed into English and some of the lines are a hoot.... let alone the mysterious evil bad guy in a Nixon mask....

This was a fun watch for us but definitely binge and go.

Bit of an acquired taste. I watched several episodes. The Americans as over the top capitalist dogs/badguys is so bad it's good.

They got me at first, I guess I'm easily fooled... but about 5 minutes into episode 2 I decided to look it up on Wikipedia ....

American made farce.... filmed in Romania with Romania actors in Romanian and then dubbed over in English to make it look more real. I had a feeling it had to been a farce when one of the detectives is searching a car and then finds hidden in a resown seat this strange box... with Monopoly written on it.... then the head detective takes it to his parents in a political prison to find out that it is an evil Capitalist game used to brain wash children into the capitalist system.

You could try the Ushanka Show on YT. Childhood tales of the young Comrade John Wayne Cheeseburger in soviet Ukraine. The banana story is hilarious.

I like the czech films of the 'magical' genre such as 'Saxanna'. But its hit-or-miss with english subtitles and random uploads.
