Trivia

In the second episode "May", the song "Norge i rødt hvitt og blått" (Norway in red white and blue) is played by a passing marching band when journalist Thomas Eriksen is in the city centre. This song was written in 1941 as a result of the German occupation of Norway during WW2. It's one of Norway's most famous national songs and refers to Norwegian independence and trust in the citizens protecting the countries values of freedom and democracy. Which is in stark contrast to the events taking place in the series. See more »

Brilliant yet chilling plot
6 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

I could not stop watching Occupied once I started - in fact, I binge watched it because I was so enthralled. It is a quality series - great writing, fantastic main character, and a plot that evokes a range of unsettling emotions. The premise is plausible as democracy is often at risk or takes second place to wealth and power. While Russia plays the typical role of evil super power, this show also exposes the self serving agenda of the U.S. whose politicians choose to strategically turn a blind eye to the occupation of Norway. I highly recommend Occupied to anyone who wants to be enthralled by a thought provoking political thriller. Hoping for a season two!
