User Reviews

One of the worst Mini-series in Sweden ever!
3 January 2006 | by ohaqSee all my reviews

I really didn't like this show when it was aired in Sweden. The show was really frustrating in a strange way. It was so full of clichés and it felt like a "wannabe-american-show". The characters were talking about running to Mexico(!), I mean, the show takes place in Sweden for crying out loud! The actors didn't do a good job in any way what so ever, but I guess it's hard to work with such a bad script. It really bugged me that some people liked this show so much, everybody has the right to their own opinion of course, but come on, this show is a parody...

/ Angry swede, 1 out of 10
