83% Comrade Detective: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The whole thing is made to feel tacky and dated. But after watching a couple episodes of this propaganda parody, I am all in. The comedy is loaded with amusing Marx references and clever nationalist jokes. And an awesome '80s soundtrack, naturally.‐ Tampa Bay Times
