Not appropriate for children.

"Comrade Detective" is an entertaining, imaginative re-creation of an Eastern Bloc police drama. Although not uproariously funny, it is consistently amusing and full of satirical gems. I disagree with the reviewer about the sexual and violent content in the show -- both are extreme and inappropriate for children (there are two very explicit sex scenes with full nudity and much more violence than described). And the language is vulgar throughout. Frankly, I question whether the reviewer has seen all of the episodes. Although the excesses of both capitalism and communism are targeted here, it is communism in general -- and the Romanian government in particular -- that bear the brunt of the ridicule. I enjoyed this series and would recommend it for adults, but I wouldn't dream of sharing it with my sixteen year old.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
