Lavish, machine gun-paced comedy series - a broad and smart laugh-out-loud must for many a Swede!
Broad, lavishly produced Swedish skit comedy series might look all he-haw/low-brow at first glance, but hang on! Manages to mix slapstick, biting satire & varieté-style musical numbers all in one, and does so magnificently thanks to fine, inventive writing (spoofing many entertainment genres and poking fun at different Swedish colloquial humor content plus the TV industry itself) and equally vivid acting by its large but tight ensemble... that also introduced a handful of new comic faces to its domestic audience (well, to me at least!).
Might not be internationally suited, but its machine gun-pace, enthusiastic energy and smart, laugh-out-loud comic material makes this a definite DVD must for repeated viewings to many a Swede! Among many gems: "Skärgården", "Hemliga dokument", "Jan Bananberg", "Studentmottagningen", "Bestefar & jeg" - and no to mention the rolling Globe Arena scene and the whole "American Southern courtroom drama" episode... classics-to-be for sure!
