Double Decker! Doug and Kirill – Second Chances (Episodes 5-8)

What’s happened since last time? We see more of Esperanza, the gang behind Anthem, the dangerous street drug and they’re crazy. More of Doug’s past is revealed, showing us why he’s obsessed with taking down Esperanza. Kirill finds his sister… kind of, and we learn more about the team.

Have your feelings changed? I really enjoyed the comedy elements of the first four episodes and thankfully that continued. It’s generally fairly dark or surreal humour which is right up my street. The crime elements are getting stronger too, although, did they really try to pull a Keyser Soze on us with a Walter White looking character? Continue reading “Double Decker!

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.
