Well well well, they said it couldn't be done...
19 August 2001 | by (Århus, Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Langt fra Las Vegas" is the story about a handful of people who produces a TV-program called Jumpstart, aired on one of the nation wide channels. The main character, Casper Christensen, plays himself (he is a well known comedian in Denmark) and he is the host on the program Jumpstart. During the 13 episodes we follow Casper and his coworkers through good times and bad times. And nothing on this show follows standard procedure!!! All the characters contribute beautifully to the outrages plots and wacky dialogs. Nothing is sacred, nothing gets spared and lots of fun is made! Everything is given a twist and every joke is pushed right to the limit, making this show the best ever made on Danish hands. Director Jarl Friis-Mikkelsen and Casper Christensen have truly excelled here. And on the side note I can say that there's a female actress playing the role of the receptionist and I can safely say there's not a single male within 5 lightyears who doesn't know who she is! Nuff said!

Anyway, if you master the Danish language I highly recommend seeing this show. It doesn't get any better than this.
