Not your American TV show
31 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Probably the thing I like most about this series, and the thing which attracted me to it in the first place, is the contrast it provides between it and anything that might appear on American TV. This show could NEVER appear on American TV, unless on one of the subscription channels like HBO, because it has such a casual and accepting attitude towards sex and sexuality and towards "profanity." These things don't bother me in the least, but I'm hardly the norm in America. If this series is any indication, then clearly the Danes, like other Europeans, are much more grown up in their attitudes towards sex and language. Not that that should surprise anyone.

That being said, I'm right on the cusp of giving up on this series. (I've watched 6 episodes.) This is another of those productions which is plot-driven to the detriment of character development. What I mean by that is that the writers, in order to move things along, cause the characters to be simply carried along by the necessities of the plot without regard to whether their characters ever would (or could), in a million years, actually act like that. Zebras, it is rightly said, cannot change their stripes, but in this series people change their personalities quicker than you can change your pants.

Bottom line, I think, is just that the series is poorly written, and as a result the characters swim around in a plot-driven sea tide which carries them around willy-nilly, without any volition or logic on their part.

On the plus side, Mille Dinesen has a beautiful butt, and the camera unabashedly lingers on it. I wish that were enough to keep me watching, but I'm afraid it's not.
