The Melkersson family decides to leave the city for the summer to rent a house in the Stockholm archipelago. They come to enjoy the simple life there and all adventures that come their way together with resident family, the Grankvists.
This show is one of the most famous and appreciated Swedish children's shows. I used to watch it all the time 8-10 years ago, and recently decided to pick up the box set with the whole show, because of the nostalgia and not having seen any episodes in ages. It was fun to watch again, but the show definitely lacks originality (which a lot of other nostalgic Swedish shows to me does not), I can see now. For the nostalgic part, this is a solid 9, but watching it again, I realized that this show really isn't THAT good. So a 6 will have to do. But kids will enjoy this, for sure. I know how I used to love it, and I still do in a way, but it's not a great show without the nostalgic part.
