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.

A sketch comedy program with Norwegian comedians Atle Antonsen, Harald Eia, Bård Tufte Johansen and Kristopher Schau performing sketches typified by poking fun at people from Northern Norway and regional dialects.

In NOBEL, two stories carefully intertwine as a returning soldier and family man becomes a pawn in a political international game. As the stakes grow higher he is forced to discover just how far one should go in the name of peace.
The story behind Hitler's plan of Germany getting the atomic bomb during WW2, and the heavy water sabotages in Rjukan, Norway, seen from four angles, the German side, the allied, the saboteurs and the company side.

A modern take of the classic Norwegian movie where our main characters meet unforeseen troubles and bureaucracy when they refurbish an inherited house, to get away from a mad mother. A hopeless and hilarious meet with the system.

Dag is a Norwegian comedy series about a marriage counselor who think people should live in solitude. He hates spending time with other people, except from his friend Benedict who is struggling to be faithful in his own relationship. Dag's life changes when his well-meaning sister, Marianne, forces him to go on his nineteenth blind-date with her old childhood friend, Eva.
This programme is of such high quality that I can't believe I only found it by searching for a new comedy on Sky. The characters are superb and, when combined with the story lines, I am frequently swept away by feelings of horror, humour and fascination and find myself watching the screen open-mouthed. I'm half way through season 2 and it just keeps getting better. The female Russian drug-addict and Muslim convert are particular minor-character favourites. Highly recommended for fans of intelligent, quality, comedy. Yes, the subtitles have got worse in season 2 but it doesn't spoil my enjoyment, it sometimes adds to the humour. The only real problem with them is being distracted from the attractive actresses.
