A mockumentary about comedian Thomas Giertsen, who has everything: Great girlfriend, big house, lots of cash and funny friends. A perfect life? Still he tends to get in trouble. After all; he's always right.
Ine F. Jansen,
This is not at all a flawless production. Like most Norwegian TV series a lot of the characters and dialogue is somewhat corny.
The whole 'happy madhouse' genre is dangerous territory but I found this version way more satisfying than the Oscar nominated 'Silver Linings Playbook', easily comparable in terms of subject matter.
Buzz Aldrin's strengths for me lies in the Faroese actors, especially Havstein, Anna and Palli. It is also an undeniable fact that the scenery of the Faroe Islands is unusually beautiful, even the scenes that take place in the Capital are worth seeing for the location alone. That being said, the script also had some very funny elements, and I found myself laughing out loud at times, even though I was watching by myself.
My main reason for not instantly recommending this to everyone is that I found the first episode to be quite boring. Although it has some flashbacks to my beloved 80's and a very beautiful music scene it fails to really captivate me as an audience.
All in all I found the show enjoyable and by the time I got to the last episode I was almost sad there were no more.
