Its well made. Funny and interesting characters.
But i feel that something is missing.
In the start of the series, youre interested to follow the main character Gösta's submissiveness. Then its goes over to become abit much repetitive and you start to look for something else. Then you start to suffer for Gösta, alot. This reminds me of one of the main character in Moodyssons earlier titles, "Together" (2002). Where the character Göran, finds himself in a similar situation like Gösta. Almost same name there. Coincidence, i think not?
If this series is about an exploration on why Gösta is too nice to people. Then it certainly makes its deal. Otherwise i understand why people misunderstands this show.
You have to see Moodyssons other films in order to understand this piece.
