Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Uri and Ella is an Israeli comedy series (with English subtitles) about a co-dependent father and daughter coping with life after the death of the family matriarch. The show's themes are mature, and range from complicated dating and romantic situations to alcoholism. It features strong sexual situations (but no nudity), references to pot smoking, drinking, and strong arguments. There's lots of cursing ("f--k," "s--t").
Is It Any Good?
The entertaining series features a father and daughter who, after a year of grieving the loss of their wife and mother, are individually trying to move forward with their lives. Central to the show is Uri (Shlomo Bar-Aba) and Ella's (Dina Senderson) close but somewhat co-dependent relationship, which serves as both a deterrent to building new relationships with other people, and a source of support when things go wrong once they do.
The exchanges between father and daughter are amusingly sharp, and the duo's colorful friends, especially Zuki (Pablo Rosenberg) and Kineret (Liron Vaisman), add to the fray. But Uri and Ella is also full of emotional moments that remind you that as far as they've come along, their journey still isn't an easy one. If you're looking for a smart and unique dramatic comedy series, this one is worth tuning into.
