Wonderful, funny, and oh so human
15 July 2014 | by janebenson200See all my reviews

Clever, witty, and culturally insightful about both Americans and Swedes, but even more than that, it is funny and insightful about people in general. Like Seinfeld and 30 Rock, it's more intelligent than your average sitcom, but that's to be expected given the people involved. And as a half-Swedish American, it is great to see actual Swedes playing Swedes instead of exaggerated imitations. Amy and her brother have created and produced something magical and rare. Lena Olin is magnificent and so are the other actors. A great, new, warm, funny take on the classic fish-out-of-water story. The family dynamics are also spot on. Love it.
