I will be missing my weekly dose of Srugim and Im downunder in Australia. I can imagine how many more will miss it locally in Israel. Oh well, I still have the past 3 series on my computer if I need a fix. All the best.
It's a great sadness that here in the Diaspora the media focus on the ultra-extremist wing of Haredim as if they were typical of observant Israeli Jews. 'Normal' Israeli observant Jews are not deemed newsworthy. We could use an English edition of Serugim.
3. "Normal Religious"?! Still waiting for TV w/"normal" secular
Why does news of a TV show have to become another opportunity to bash religious people?
Mr. Teller, contrary to what you might think, most religious people are not the sub-humans that we are portrayed as in YOUR media.
I, for one, would like to see a program that depicts secular Jews as "normal" human beings and not godless pimps and whores.
4. Obviously the secular public..
enjoyed this refreshing unique program free from physical relations and violence . Without them,it might not be such a success,as most orthodox people don t have television at home.
5. right decision.
but I am still sad to hear it.
6. Israeli TV ignores 2 million plus religous
Tongiht Chanell two devoted
five minutes of its newscast
to tell us the all women band
the "Witches" is regrouping
(after one of them was murdered)
The news of the religious community numbering some at least 2 million ciitzens is completely ignored their activites lectures symposiums their leaders their entire lifestyle is totally ignored except to redicule
or disparage that is while cheap gutter entertainment gets
priority a new channel 2 copycat
of a foul American sitcom "Married
plus 2 " the lowest of the low of comedy" is the latest.
Somethings will never change and that is Israeli Television which seems to have as its mission the total corruption of the nation and with full govermental support.
7. Mistranslation of the century
"running around hilltops with teddy bears and Uzis".
Teddy bears?! What self-respecting nationalist, or even communist, would run around with a teddy bear?
Idiot Ynet (mis)translators took the Hebrew colloquial word "dubonim" - army anoraks - and translated it literally to "teddy bears".
You should be ashamed of yourselves Ynet. Fire your proofreaders and copy-editors!
Anne K ,
8. this show sucked it after season 1
Season 1 was amazing and then came season 2. It was so depressing and made religious people look sad and boring. I had to stop watching. It also pissed me off that they never showed Anglos in Jerusalem, we do exist so there should have been a character that represented our group too. I don't know what happened in season 3 but I just couldn't force myself through more bad tv.
9. We all goof sometimes
Anne, please cool it a bit. We all goof sometimes.
