It is clear that all of this Seasoned with humor and jokes who are accustomed to the Sicilian comedian duo who have distinguished themselves over the years with their comedic sayings and irony of clichés and stereotypes that capitalize on the Sicilian origins of the protagonists. Will our “heroes” be able to stay safe in the face of one of the epidemics that have terrified and damaged society over the years?

related It is a series that at first glance looks like one TV crime series in the style of the 2000s: chasesRotate items a job to everyday items with the addition of modern items, Like the TV series on the streaming platforms Salvo is very interested in, smartphones and video calls, elements that, for obvious reasons, could not have been present in the aforementioned TV series in the early years of this millennium.
As for the technical aspects, we can’t complain at all: the photography, setting, directing and writing blend perfectly, making related Come on TV series Light, pleasant, interesting and relatively pleasant tones. its duration 6 episodes from around Half an hour each But despite this characteristic, The rhythm of the series fails to be intense, Slow down the progress of events a little and not allow the viewer to “connect the dots”, as if The presented “puzzle” pieces are not enough to reconstruct the facts.
related It is one TV series A self-deprecating view: The choice of crime genre is considered by Ficarra and Picone themselves, the directors, screenwriters and heroes of the series, The car that leads to the development of events He clearly does not want to reconnect with A There is no typical link between Sicily and the theme of life as a mafia gang; If anything, the easiest correlations to identify are those related to other deeper issues, which we see in the next paragraph.

As mentioned above, the issues on which it depends related They are okay Beyond the stereotypes that link the reality of the mafia in the region Where the series revolves: Although it can be represented in a frivolous and amusing way, also thanks to the duo’s comic gags, The issues are deeper than they might seem. question for betrayal, For example: lack of interest in a life partner, which can often lead to infidelity or complete separation.
However, another problem that has only been touched upon is the one that makes self-irony out of the fact that In the past, it was not politics that solved certain problems, but the mafia organizations themselves. They got the full support of the citizens if they themselves Problems that are solvable from an economic and social point of view.

Obviously, for those viewers who are already accustomed to the products (movies and graphics) from Ficarra and Picone, this feature is not entirely new, in fact In almost all of their works, the female character is always prominent This feature is transferred to A complete contradiction to the ideal of southern women
Briefly, related, Being the first TV series of Ficarra and Picone, it can be considered a good product that, in addition to entertaining the viewer, also opens very complex discourses and addresses them with the right dose of lightness, as You don’t want it to be the classic complaint against the underworld but ‘ridicule’, if any. The same Ficarra and Picone, during the conference dedicated to the series in which we participated, considered themselves happy that they put themselves to the test with this project with Netflix Because it was a huge challenge for them as well, especially because he exists The first time they try their hand at a project that’s longer than the movie.
But on the other hand, they themselves claimed it Working in a series is very different from making a movie. Although the degree of comedy remained the same as ever.
