News & Interviews for Comrade Detective: Season 1
This six-episode series is meant to make us question the ways propaganda and slogans can infiltrate and influence society; a timely message wrapped tightly within an effective comedic conceit.
It slips in commentary under the guise of laughter, but the point of the joke, whether you chuckle or not, sticks with you.
And yet for all its off-the-wall wackiness and occasionally rococo caricatures, Comrade Detective is, in its own unique way, quite a serious little bit of telly.
Finding its way past the original gag might be the biggest hold up for some, but once you're in, it is hard to stop.
It feels silly and outdated, yet the Communist propaganda parody is full of Marx references and witty nationalist gibes.
