Every show begins with Glenn Killing covering a song - everything from Cure's "Friday I'm in Love" to Ministry's "Jesus Built My Hotrod." After some small talk between Glenn and his assistant Robban the competition starts: various guests with very different skills do their tricks in the ring and later a winner is appointed. There are also some other part of the programme like the sponsors very own "Percy Nilegård's Guide to the Better Sweden" or flicks from the everyday life of the metal head Tommy Bohlin. Crooner Loke Martinzon performs a song in every programme. The shows end with Glenn interviewing a pop star and then doing one of their songs himself. Written by

"I manegen med Glenn Killing" might me the most ironic tv series ever made. Henrik Schyffert in combination with the legendary Robert Gustavsson is probably the most humoristic pair in swedish history, Hasse och Tage included. There are some magic parts in this series. For example the the figure who's entire grown up life been "tysk fälthare". That's just too good to be true. I think you must see the series a lot of times to catch up all of the irony. The first time you see it you just take up glimpses of the masterpiece.
