Double Decker! Doug & Kirill – First Impressions (Episodes 1-4)

What’s it about? A police constable who dreams of being a hero finally gets a chance to join an elite detective team. Under the guidance of his cool and philosophical partner, they try to put a stop to the new super drug – Anthem.

What are your first impressions? There have been some very funny moments so far. Definitely enough to keep me going. In the first episode, Kirill stripped and emerged from a cloud of smoke pretending to be a time traveller in an attempt to confuse a criminal long enough for Doug to take him down.

Favourite character so far? Doug is amazing. I love his dry sense of humour… although I don’t think he’s trying to be funny. Whatever, he’s hilarious and really keeps Kirill on his toes.

Who do you want to see more of? We need more Pink. She may come across as a dangerous loner, and for the most part, she is, but she’s also calm and calculating. In the dubbed version, she’s also voice by Jamie Marchi which is always a good thing. She is badass!

Are you going to continue watching? Yes, definitely. There have been more than enough funny moments to keep me interested. I think Kirill is going to take a little getting used to, but the rest of the characters more than make up for him.
