Hi everyone!

Could someone please write down the Russian text from 0:11 to 0:23 in this video?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cx2CyNApUQo

The English text is this (the translation is not literal):
"And if we go bankrupt in the process, we won't be a legal aid office. Hunt has an army of lawyers and they are ready to bury us." "You and I against an army? I love those odds." "Why do you hate me?"

I am interested in what exactly they say in Russian. Could someone help me with this?

"А если мы обанкротимся в процессе, то ими* и не будем. У Ханта армия юристов, они зароют нас в землю." "Мы с тобой против армии! Обожаю такие шансы." "За что ты меня не любишь?"

*ими stands for the word юрисконсультами from the preceding line.

I used 1-3 only.

Hey all, I was looking for something to watch in Russian after finishing "Better than Us" (Лучше, чем люди...not sure why they didn't translate it directly), and came upon this excellent post for series on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Great link, thank you! Лучше, чем люди was an awesome show. Other than that one, so far I've seen:

Мажор: Loved it, still need to see s3
Метод: Enjoyed it up to a point then I was bored. Paulina Andreeva is an amazing actress!
Кухня: My first Russian show, which I started watching after my mum who speaks Russian well spent many days bingeing it. Really nice show to relax with.
Коп: I found the concept so hilarious I had to watch it without subs. An American cop is sent to Russia to work in a Russian police department. Many typical American and Russian stereotypes play out. The actor is Russian but plays an American so he has to fake a bad accent. Which is hilarious because his grammar is absolutely spotless despite the fake bad accent.

Russia does crime shows so well haha. But according to my Russian tutors, Russians consider Russian shows and music really bad.

Thanks so much for this, it's really useful and just the right level for me. Are there PDF transcripts for the other conversations too, or do I need to read them on languagetools.io instead? Would be handy having an offline copy. Either way thanks very much indeed! :D
