    Kotikatu is the longest running drama series on Finnish television. Its popularity is not based on dead people brought back to life, conspiracies, people cheating each other or any other controversial elements, but it has a realistic and down to earth approach that pleases especially those, who prefer realism. It's not really a soap-opera. It presents the life of a finnish citizen as it is for most.

    The story is centered around Mäkimaa,Luotola and Partanen families and their friends. Mäkimaa's are the upper middle class family and the most stable out of the three fictional families. Family Luotola have always had a lot of dysfunctionality. The father Hannes had an alcohol problem and he's had relationships with several other women during the shows run. Partanen's are the working class family who moved to town to get a fresh start.

    Too realistic and depressing drama. There's actually nothing interesting in this ordinary piece of garbage. Story tell's about normal people with trivial everyday problems. Things we have already experienced in our life's. I just would like to know WHY? WHY Finnish TV and filmmakers produce so boring stories? They have made few funny films and series, but that's all. It is almost always this minimalist trivial everyday drama. BORING!

    And if you have to do serious drama, you should write more interesting stories. Not just stories for people aged forty five and over. And don't say it's about money. Use your imagination!!!
