Comrade Detective

1 post in this topic

Comrade Detective is a new Amazon show with an extremely odd premise. It's about a Romanian TV police drama from the 80s that has been rediscovered and dubbed by the likes of Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nick Offerman, Kim Basinger, and others. It sounds like the setup for some kind of bizarre high-concept spoof. The thing is, though, they created the Romanian show for this series and stylized it to look like it's 30 years old, and it's genuinely a pretty good show, particularly in how it depicts communist propaganda from the insider's perspective (e.g. Americans are the villains infiltrating the country with Jordache jeans).

I get the feeling they planned it as a joke, but when they saw how good the Romanian actors were, had to play it straight more than they had intended.
