If you read one of my articles already you must have seen that my english is not that good and that is because it is my second language and actually Hungarian is my mother language. So I thought why not write an article about really great Hungarian Tv shows, these selected few are not necessarily my favourite shows. Later on there will be an article about ‘The best Hungarian Tv shows for teenagers’ too.
