Danish version of Swedish hit daytime soap, about the fictional town of "Egebæk", the hospital and the various family dynasties, who are shaken from their humdrum existence, when a mysterious drifter is suddenly hit by a car and admitted into the local hospital. Lots of family secrets uncovered and typical unending dramatics. Series centers mainly on the intertwining story of the younger family members.Written by
Affectionately known as "Red Eyes" amongst the crew, due to the long hours of planning, taping and editing. The crew produced, taped and edited 156 half-hour episodes in less than six months, working three rotating shifts with alternating directors and producers. See more »
Typical soap. Only one ever made in Denmark as far as i know. Small town hospital.
The plot is a little crazy as can be expected. You can tell they haven't had a lot of time for shooting, writing, lighting, directing. But I liked watching it. It seems that the young actors are more natural than the older "theatre actors", maybe because the medium is so different from what they're used to. The young actors are more believable, especially Kim Jansson, "Niels Blom", Adam Brix, Mia Maria Back and Mads Knarreborg. They bring a certain charm to the table and make fun out of, what could have been boring soap stuff. The ending however: What happened? There is none. After so many episodes, couldn't they have made a proper ending?
