I've always found great enjoyment with the anthology drama both in print and on the screen, for the format often makes some great stories with unexpected twists. So when this Norwegian anthology TV show came on Netflix, I eagerly started to watch it. But quite frankly, I was disappointed. The fault simply lies with the scripts. Many of the stories have twists you'll most likely find very predictable, especially if you have seen plenty of anthologies beforehand as I had. But even the stories that are less predictable suffer from pacing that is very slow and will have you eventually urging the episode to just get on with it. I will give that the makers of this series managed to generate acceptable production values despite having a budget much lower that what you would get for an American television series. And it's not the worst anthology I have seen (that dubious honor goes to the Canadian made for TV movie "Mania"). But I would only recommend this show if you are truly desperate for an anthology show and can't find anything better to watch.
