This is my favorite show of all time. I enjoy it in Russian.
I would like the English subtitled version to be transliterated a little better. It would be much funnier if the idea got across rather than the literal translation. Cripple and Half wit do not mean the same as it does to us
Still, no matter the state of translation seasons 2-4 and the Kitchen in Paris film should be seen.
This show is a world asset.

This show was excellent. Wish season 2 would be put up soon as it is not available with English subtitles anywhere else - even for purchase. Please Amazon, add it.

Super funny. Even though it is in Russian, I enjoy watching and reading the English subtitles. The interplay between the characters makes the show. The music selection during cut-scenes and in the background also adds to the program - where else can you get Wagner, Enya, and the Cat Empire's "Lost Song" on the same program?

Invest your time for the first two episodes and it will pay off.

Great fun and translates to most markets. Would however suggest Amazon updates its show overview. The owner is not a gangster but a famous celebrity who owns the restaurant (it would be like Goerge Clooney playing himself as a famous person who owns a top restaurant).

Super funny and delightful comedy series! Cinematography, cast, music, setting, dialogues - all top notch! These are my favorite TV comedy series, along with Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Just Shoot Me! It just makes you feel so good and puts you in a good mood right away. Cannot wait for other 3 seasons to be translated into English and become available on Amazon!
