AMAZON Comrade Detective: Complete First Season [Series Premiere]

The premise is this is a recently rediscovered classic that the American stars have overdubbed to bring to U.S. audiences. With Tatum and Gordon-Levitt providing the English language voices, Detectives Gregor Anghel and Iosef Baciu are played on screen by Romanian actors, Florin Piersic Jr. (Killing Time) and Corneliu Ulici (The Devil Inside).

 As a Ronald Reagan-masked gunman, cliché rich trailer set-up, car chases in Bucharest and old school boomboxes make clear, the six-episode Comrade Detective is no Gorky Park and certainly no The Americans. Then again, it doesn’t need to be because as the scene at the American Embassy in the trailer reveals, this one is playing for laughs at everyone’s expense. Click for more info & trailer
