One of the most popular short-series on Soviet TV during 1980s
"Spadla z oblakov" ("She fell from the clouds") under Russian title "Priklyucheniya v kanikuly" ("Vacation Adventures") was one of the most popular short-series on Soviet TV during 1980s. I haven't seen one over 15 years and nowadays it is on Russian TV again - on "Kultura" channel. Unfortunately my recent impressions differ very much from the effect of old years. Now this series produces rather stupid effect:( There were a little science-fiction short series on Soviet TV and only a couple of them - "Priklucheniya Electronika" (1979) and "Gost'ya iz budushchego" (1983) - have popularity and cult status up to the present time. I thought "Spadla z oblakov" kept cult status too, but alas I was wrong! Routinely Soviet TV showed children's movies and series made in Eastern Europe (Poland, GDR, Czechoslovakia) - mainly fairy tales, adventures and comedies. Thus no wonder any SF-series became an event.
