Like the previous commentator, I saw this programme when BBC4 presented it as part of their Iceland season. The first couple of episodes I liked, but I was a bit lost. Once I got to know the characters, though, I loved it more and more. The characters are beautifully drawn and magnificently played: you don't think of it as acting, you feel you're seeing a window into someone's life. I also thought Daníel should have paid more attention to Ylfa, starting with telling her she looked nice in episode 11, but life isn't perfect. Ólafur, for me, is the finest achievement: on the one hand, he's the perpetual underdog, so that you can't help feeling sorry for him, but on the other hand, he is forever doing something stupid. My favourite episode is the eleventh, where Georg tries to teach his embarrassed and uninterested pubescent son the Facts of Life with the help of a copy of Hustler ("The man has a penis, the woman doesn't have a penis. Well, that one does, but she's deformed.") and a white-board for vocabulary and diagrams. I was quite relieved when that one was over, because I was laughing so much it hurt. I shall certainly buy the DVD, which I am pleased to find is available with English subtitles.
