TV show from 1999/2000

Post by Kevin E » Thu Aug 29, 2013 3:35 pm


I'm looking for the name of a TV show from Finland that was a comedy, featuring certainly one very well known actor from Finland (a 'star'). The central gimmick of the show was that the men all seemed to have the roles in life (& some attitudes) that were traditionally associated with women, while the women all were the opposite (one scene featured a wife come home from I think an army job, smack her husband on the ass, go & get a beer, then watch tv while ignoring the kids...).

I would really appreciate the title of this show, as I only watched it once with a Finn (who I've fallen out of touch with) who translated for me as we watched.

Could it be this? Starring Pirkka-Pekka Petelius and Taneli Mäkelä.!

Yep, the plot sounds correct and Pirkka-Pekka Petelius is a comedy star.

Google Translate butchers the plot description hilariously. "Jorma Härmälä" becomes "Mr. Poing".

The DVD seems to be sold out, but here's one on, the Finnish equivalent of eBay, at a "buy it now" price: ... /278080475
