The series Tasos Karatasos is a tragic tribute to people who are not fully conscious of what they are doing. They plod along in the darkness, capable of doing good as well as evil.

We are talking about the best Greek series of recent years. ]...] Guided by Iannis Smaragdis and with the vivid dialogues of George Armenis, the actors give their best.
Mary Protoyirou, Ena no. 51, December 1985

Ave, Taso Karatasso produces spontaneous explosions of laughter and emotion, it echoes how people really speak and has good dialogue, the acting is superb and the overall impression is seamless.
Maria Papadopoulou, Ta Nea, 20 January 1986
