Norwegian humor at it's best (much else fades)
5 January 2004 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

On a barn in the forest 24 people are gathered to live like Christmas gnomes for 24 days. One is voted off every day, and only the most cunning gnome will stay to Christmas-eve and be the winner of one million norwegian kroner.

This realty show most be the best one ever made. First off all a realty show that isn't real has a great start off concept, don't you think? And it is so cleverly made that it stands out as some off the best Norway has ever made.

Mr Eckbo rules:) If you want to see something foreign (perhaps norwegian), "Nissene på låven" (Translates roughly (Christmas Gnomes\ elfs on the barn) and "get ready to be boyzvoiced" (also Eckbo) will be off my highest recommendations.
