There’s a new Romanian series broadcasted by a certain TV channel
called “Good guys”. It’s about the adventures of two policemen in the ever-flourishing world of the Romanian outlaws. It has everything, drugs, prostitution, kinky sex scenes and a huge quantity of Romanian humor. I actually thought it would suck but it’s great!
There’s of course a black policeman, called Edi Balan (Balan is something like White, so…), played by Cabral
, local TV star
, and his partner whom he of course arrests while working undercover. And the English of one of the bad guys (played by a great actor and singer)
is actually delicious! Very bad accent, English words mixed with Romanian – mostly cursing and swearing – and the Romanian street-wise attitude! Delicious!!!
Obviously, it is copied – mostly influenced by the American series – but it has something very genuinely local that makes it so good!
