07 zg o si 07 come in adam palma plays tribute to his favorite polish tv series
07 zgłoś się (07 Come In) was a highly popular Polish criminal television series broadcast on TVP between 1976 and 1987. The series consists of twenty-one 60-minute Polish language episodes, divided into five seasons - filmed in 1976, 1978, 1981, 1984 and 1987, respectively. It combines elements of action film and police procedural genres.
Directed by Krzysztof Szmagier, it centers on the investigations of Police (Milicja Obywatelska) Lieutenant Sławomir Borewicz (played by Bronisław Cieślak). Each episode features a different case being solved by Lieutenant Borewicz. The series was loosely based on a novel series Ewa wzywa 07 (Ewa calls 07). The title of both the novels and the TV series refers to "Zero-Seven", a police radio call-sign used by Borewicz.
Despite being widely considered a work of propaganda aimed at warming the image of "Citizen's Militia", the series proved highly popular in Poland and even gained a cult following. Critics consider it "one of the biggest achievements of Polish crime drama" the "raw and realist response to >silly< Bond", and "the most popular Polish police series ever".
