A refreshing and modern take on how young adults live in Serbia
Though I was a bit sceptical when the show was announced, I must admit that I was surprised with how good the show actually turned out to be.
The main characters are relatable. The problems they face (whether these problems are job-related, relationship-related or personal inner crises and meltdowns) make the experience you get by watching the show seem quite familiar.
And most importantly - the characters are not simplified and reduced to stereotypes.
The show manages to cover a lot of different social problems and phenomena that the modern day society in Serbia deals with as a whole. But the fact that this is done in very subtle way, is what makes the show so unique and different to some other Serbian shows that may have tried to do the same thing in the past decade or so.
The big part of the show is the music. It's like you have a constantly recurring character, who paints the perfect mood of every scene. The show has done a great job, both by using the music of some of the most popular national and regional pop/ rock/ electronic/ alternative music artists, as well as introducing a variety of new bands and musicians.
Overall, it's the story that counts. It's the personal struggles and difficulties each of these main characters experience while trying to cope with the life in a society and culture that do not necessarily make it easy for anyone of us. Not even to the least extent.
And that's why I liked it. The show doesn't try, nor it aspires to be anything else than it actually is - a modern perspective on how we all live and cope with ourselves both individually and collectively.
