From realism to boring, egocentric soap style in one season.
1 September 2000 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I am not sure how this series ultimately started, but when I started watching it, I was fascinated by the realistic view on small town life, the enthusiasm of a newly started high tech company and the depth of the personal relationships of this series. In short, I believed in what I saw.

Then something happened... Something bad... Focus was drawn away from the small town environment and the enthusiasm of the workers in the newly started firm. Suddenly everything changed and became a cynical egocentric powertrip for everyone involved. No care for the people around you anymore, every action justified from personal gain. The personal style changed into a soap polished power struggle. Maybe the series is living The American Dream, but to me it has become a less interesting series. Unless it improves, I hope the Norwegian channel that ran it here, do not buy more seasons of this...
