Why do most of the audience refer toTV shows scornfully? Because to remove a really good and high-quality product is very difficult and expensive, because unlike a full-length film it's a long story with a sequel. Can the qualitative domestic sitcom be called? Let's try to judge, relying on the list of series "Happy together."
When are people really happy?
When the family has love, mutual interest andsympathy for each other. When relationships are built with a sense of humor and sexual attraction. When a couple has common friends and in harmony the children grow up. Perhaps, more and you will not find common characteristics for a happy family. Perhaps, therefore, you can endlessly shoot series about everyday situations and the vicissitudes of family life. What is carried to the masses "Happy Together". The television series revolves around the history of the family of Genna Bukin, a modest shoe seller in one of Ekaterinburg's shops. Especially the creators of the sitcom wanted to move away from the capital's framework and show the life of ordinary people. Genes have a bright and active wife named Dasha and two children. Dasha - a typical housewife, who likes to live in pleasure, watch TV, eat sweets and pester her husband for marital duty. The children of the couple are very peculiar. A sweet but silly Light and intelligent Roma are absolute opposites. The Bukin family has neighbors - Lena and Tolik Poleno, a pretty wayward couple, where Lena is a very mercantile person, and Tolik is a former criminal, gigolo and cunning. Lena had her first husband, Zhenya Stepanov, who left his wife for the dream of becoming a hunter. The Spouses are relatively happy together. The television series shows the relationship of "polar pairs", which are pathologically required to communicate. Thanks to contact with friends, they really live in harmony.
The series is a classicsituational comedy, and therefore has no single line of stories. Each series is an isolated story that has a beginning and an end. Although it happens that several episodes are united by a common meaning. The show is very easy and relaxing. It is really suitable for the whole family and charges positive for the day. They say that laughter prolongs life, but seriously there is enough reason to laugh.
Perhaps, it is impossible to name for realquality series "Happy Together." The description of the family of heroes did not make them a role model, because they do not have stable life principles, rather low moral standards and mundane desires. The series will not make you think about the eternal or become imbued with the philosophy of being. But he will help to relax after a hard day's work, forget about grumbling boss and a small salary. There is a subtle humor and simple jokes, and through the plot there is a light irony. The viewing will be enjoyable, but it's unlikely that someone will overtake the models of behavior in life.
