best so far

I've been watching them in order. This is the best so far. I thought maybe I'm just getting hooked on the characters, but no. It's good writing. The actors seem to be more in touch with and more relaxed and natural in their roles. Maybe just a very good episode. Maybe the series is just hitting its stride. Either way, great work. The nature of the relationship between Kurt and Linda is getting more fleshed out. And there's real tenderness between Stephan and Linda. And even Kurt is getting into a relationship. Cold Swedes are warming up. Stereotypes are breaking down. It has a warmer feeling, less Nordic, more European. Broader in its appeal. Enjoyable overall.
