But you have to view this as "an alternative reality", in which Timothy Dahle, known as the manager for the mock boy band Boyzvoice (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0248036/) with a social intelligence deficiency and lacking skills in the English language, has become the host of his own talk show. This is important because all the guests on this mock show are parodies of Norwegian celebrities. *However* - they decided not to use these celebrities' own names, but instead create fictional characters that are 99% the same as their real life counterparts. This was a technique that enabled them to make harsh jokes about these "fictional characters" without having to be afraid of lawsuits etc. On the other hand, I also think it had the negative effect that many people just didn't get it.
I think that if this show had been released today, it would have been more successful, because the characters here are more known today, and the type of humor is more cemented.
I'm Norwegian, but am writing this review in English because I know there are several non-Norwegians who like the movie "Get ready to be Boyzvoiced". In this series (Tonight with Timothy Dahle), a lot of the characters from that movie make a "comeback", like Timothy himself, Ove (the fan), Waldemar Hoff (the chain smoking piano player) and a few more. So I'm having a good time viewing this again, and am glad I bought it. Unfortunately there are no English subtitles for this DVD, so it won't really have much worth to those of you non-Norwegians who liked 'Get ready to be Boyzvoiced'. Then again, you wouldn't get the references that much of the humor builds on anyway. Just wanted to say that Espen Eckbo and Co. are again showing their comedic talent in this show, although the movie 'Get ready to be Boyzvoiced' is admittedly a couple of notches better.
