Norway has never had any good TV-series, all of it has been stupid sitcoms with the same actors, but this is completely different, and that is very good. They've got great actors and really manages to show the lives of three completely normal women. It's serious, and I think that's why some people don't seem to like it. The want to be amused. You wont be a amused by this, but it's well made and worth seeing. The three sisters is played by Hilde Lyrån, Kjersti Elvik and Lisa Tønne. Lisa Tønne is actually a stand-up comedian, but shows us that she is a good actor as well. The main male parts is played by Dennis Storhøi and Samuel Fröler. Samuel is originally a Swedish actor, and he released his first album as a music artist a few years ago.
