It's the conclusion of the second week of anti-bullying, but for Hjørdis to get everyone to play their part in the show, she'll have to make some students talk and convince some bullies to rescue a ...
Love this and its not my usual thing (bit of a contrast with Walking Dead), a very lively, upbeat, heartfelt message. Deals with real issues in - I would imagine - every public school in Europe and the USA. The acting is first rate and the humor funny, even though its very family friendly (unlike some of Rita). Hjørdis herself is a delight, with all the elements of a sad, pathetic character she is, in fact, the complete opposite.

That's why its such a good interlude to the heavier Scandinavian stuff my wife and I usually watch (The Bridge being a fine example). t'm just hoping they make a second series.
