It has happened! A show with non-evil Russian! And even more: an awesomely fabulous Russian! Well, the Russian is a genius chess-player and blond , but nonetheless! The cold war is probably over!

Apart from the Russian thing that was bound to make me immediately interested, the new Canadian shown about a mastermind strategist who finds the solutions to various problems from the room of his expensive hotel (because he has a terrible psychological trauma after witnessing his girlfriend's death and can't get out of the hotel, poor thing) is immense fun. It pokes at "Mentalist" (this is where the blond locks come from) and in one single first episode manages to make fun of a huge number of various stereotypes: gay parents, Mexican women, and already mentioned Russians.



To add to it, Shawn Doyle (the actor that plays Arkady Balagan) is gorgeous. His Russian is terrible but his eyes are piercing blue. Quick Googling tells me that he used to look even better with dark hair.

PS: I think I like Canadian shows.
