If you're horse is in pain - kill it
31 January 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I have not laughed that much while watching a TV series since a long time. The humor in this series has a lot of monthy pyton style in it. Its from the beginning to the end totally absurd, in a twin peaks way, but way more funnier. Today humor in TV is often just based on total mindless stupidity. Absolutely everyone in the hellfjord series is also stupid to the max. But its done in a very intelligent way and the dialogs are brilliant. The secret star of the series is definitely Kobba. You have never ever seen such a horrible, ugly, bad and unfriendly person that you will like that much. The only thing which i did not like was, that there was way to much puking involved. In my opinion, the best scene in the series was. Setting accidentally the head of a corps on fire, then trying to put the fire out by shooting it with a shotgun.
