As we might expect for a television program headed by a foreign stranger, there are few non-sanguine people who feature in this show's segments. Rather we have a chatty NA type hair salon owner with her all-female staff and loud and convivial NPA/N Cossacks. In the second episode we meet a series of sanguine footballers, a compassionate NA-/NPA- dog pound owner, an NPA- collector of memorabilia, and an N type trumpeter.
Overall it's not a bad show, if overly lighthearted. One thing it did do well is show the randomness and eccentricities of the country, and its traditionalism. The darker side, namely the paranoia over security and the socially repressive measures enacted by the government of late, plus nostalgia for Soviet-era repressions, are glossed over. Perhaps we should come to the conclusion that Russia's considerable non-sanguine population are ill-suited for light entertainment?
