It's very entertaining to find yourself and people you know living on the farm as cows, sheep, rabbits and as a lama(? the south American animal that spits on Tintins captain Haddock..?) The series makes several points- how are we, and how do we cope with our love life and social surroundings, issues are quite up-to-date, and apparently pretty universal, that is, if you are living in the western world... Here in Sweden it is broadcasted during the kid's TV hour. I think it's clearly for the adults, the most of the funny stuff is on the level of recognizing patterns of the real life and people. It is like "Shrek", where the details that entertain adults have taken over. And those details are very funny. The musical score is great, worldish Balkan-swing, like any Kusturica soundtrack. Yes, almost forgot, one of these "up-to-date-issues" is the multi national world we are a part of, some of the farm animals being foreigners, the issue is there, politically correct but hardly boring. The Swedish voices belong to some well known actors and work really fine too.
