Best Comedy Show on TV
30 October 2010 | by buymoreSee all my reviews

Genius, provocative, hilarious, Svetlana will keep you entertained from the beginning to the end! Just imagine to see America through the eyes of a hot Russian immigrant who won't take no for an answer! This fresh and groundbreaking comedy is not typical for American Television. Every episode Svetlana keeps surprising with unexpected story turns. I've been watching re-runs of the show every Thursday and it never gets old! I can only compare Iris Bahr to Tracy Ullmon and I hope Svetlana will do another season soon! How about "Svetlana: the movie"? Iris, please keep those episodes coming, you have created a cult comedy series. This is the most unconventional show on television today!
