Probably could be said for most expats moving into a BG village situation, but sat watching this with my wife we both agreed that it was so very very close to home its uncanny. Great viewing...

Haven't read the book nor seen the series. However, did 'he' get any building jobs; did he sell British foods at car boot sales, did he stab anyone after a rather annoying night of Chalga; did he have problems understanding whether or not he needed to carry snow chains during winter; did he buy too many properties when the prices were dirt cheap and ended up having to go home cos he was broke?

If none of the above then, he's no Brit. :lol:

He went about in a tractor so didn't need snow chains, his building worked happened by magic, he spent a lot of time in the pub with the barmaid, he lost all the village goats, his wife thinks hes having an affair with young/attractive Bulgarian woman....So I would say some of its quite realistic :lol:

I searched and searched for what is called an SRT file (subtitle) to no avail, but that would be of no use when watching it on the TV as it requires a torrent download to attach the srt file to.

Unless some UK TV channel decides to show it at some future date, (like Channel 4 for example) or the Bulgarian's release the series as a DVD with English subtitles, I don't know of any other avenues to get the English subtitles you seek.

However, there is always the chance that someone will come up with a solution other than watching it with a translator. :wink:
