Each year at Christmas danish television makes a 24 episodes show aimed at kids. Often its quite good, but standard fare.
This year, though... We are only two episodes in but I don't know how this happened. The danish state channel has made something that's best described as a match between Twin Peaks, the Christmas Evangelism and classic Scandinavian children television.
We have the pregnant mother (Marie),the father (John) and the rundown stables - where big J is already living next door. The shepherd is also there with a flock of very well behaved and trained sheep. Then we have jazz singer Caroline Henderson as the local female mechanic and coffee shop owner who serves a dammed good cup of coffee and the best Christmas cake in the county. But her son wears devil horns on his elf hat and insists elf actually are vampires... But who is the daughter of John and Marie, Sus ("blow" or "wind") and what and who is her new friend Bob ? And what are the sinister looking observatory like buildings on top of the hill...
I like it :) A lot.
