Nikolaj and Julie are a couple in their early thirties, married and with a baby that they both find infinitely adorable. As workloads and unfulfilled expectations mount, their feelings towards each other are not always equally sympathetic in nature. Joining them in their Copenhagen lives are friends Frank and Karina, a married couple who direct their everyday lives according to strict rules, as well as actress-with-money-problems Søs and playboyish Philip, who enjoys his single-life freedom.Written by

In the fall of 2002 the screenplay for the ninth episode was published by unauthorized sources. A Copenhagen couple had allegedly found an abandoned stack of papers lying around at Café Hackenbusch in Vesterbrogade, Copenhagen, around midnight on Friday 31 October 2002, identifying it as a full episode script for the series. Two weeks later, when DR broadcast the final fall episode of the series, the couple discovered that the script had to be for a later episode and elected to tell their story to newspaper Ekstra Bladet and to publish the screenplay at a Geocities URL. Distributor DR protested the publication, demanding that the URL be closed and threatening lawsuits against the newspaper. Eventually, no suits were filed, but the website was closed and the episode was aired as scheduled in February 2003. See more »
I'd say, along with Frederic Raphael's "The Glittering Prizes," that "Nikolaj og Julie" is one of the most brilliant things ever written for television. Unfortunately, there are no English subtitles. Sofie Gråbøl is brilliant. There are a lot of actors that international viewers will be familiar with from other Danish productions including: "Anna Pihl," "Rita," "Borgen," "The Killing." The acting is superb. High production values. And more than anything else, it is what is so rarely seen on TV, at least stateside, stories about what happens after boy gets girl, or girl gets boy. The reality of making marriages and relationships work. Of course the Scandinavian countries are so interesting because equality is considerably more advanced, even if very far from perfect. Adam Price, the creator of "Borgen" and main writer for "Anna Pihl," is the creator of "Nikolaj og Julie." I just think it is rare to find intelligence anywhere on TV , this 22 episode series is incredible. It has a lot of drama, but is also humorous, and is very well paced. Highly recommended.
